I am having a breast reduction due to medical issues…neck and back pain. I’m really excited, I have wanted this for yrs and finally got my insurance to pay for most of it! Can anyone tell me how to go about finding a good dr.? I have appt. with 3 different drs. to “interview” them and am planning to look them up with Better Business. Is there any thing else I can do? Is there a web site that lists stuff? I live in Austin TX if that helps or if anyone out there has experience with a dr here (good or bad, I would like to know the bad to avoid them – lol). I am also wondering about the post surgery recovery. I have heard this is major surgery and takes 4-6 weeks to fully recover….Is it worth it? I think it will be (but i’m not in pain right now lol). I’m 35 and plan to live at least another 50 years and don’t want to do it with the daily pain I have now in my back and neck. Any (serious) advice or experiences welcome.
- I haven’t had it but a friend did. Hers was due to back & neck pain also. She ended up with a very weird breast shape – her doctor told her AFTER the surgery that the procedure to make them a nice normal shape again was a separate procedure. They can be done at the same time, but since he didn’t bother to tell her it was something separate she had to ask for, it wasn’t done. Hopefully other doctors are not this stupid, but I would definitely make sure you clear that up ahead of time.
- I already answered your other question, but please feel free to e-mail me with any other questions. I went through this only a month ago, so my memory is fresh and I can tell you anything you need to know. I am SO happy that I did it and want everyone who needs it to be able to have it done and be secure in their decision to do it. entangledhere AT yahoo.com
- I’m a MAN, and I”m sorry if it offends you that I think those two words just don’t ever belong in the same sentence !!
