MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I developed a large chest at a very early age. I never felt that they fit me and as the years went by not only did they look way to big for my body but the weight on my shoulders and back had become more than I could handle. My bra size prior to reduction was a 32ddd and it's only been 3 weeks after surgery so we will see what they end up at but suffice it to say they are much smaller (i'm thinking a C), lifted and just so much better than before. A weight has literally been lifted from me and my clothes fit better to boot. A win-win. The surgery went really well. I was a nervous wreck the morning of but Dr. E and staff are so nice and did not judge the crazy crying lady at all! Ha, ha. I felt completely safe in their hands. The pain after was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be and was easily handled by the medication. I was only on Rx pain meds for two days and then switched to OTC Tylenol. I had drains too and that wasn't bad either. I had them in for 3 days and while they were a little "in the way" it really wasn't bad. Dr. E called several times a day to check on me and is always reachable which is fantastic especially for a nervous Nellie like me! I am 100% thrilled that I decided to have this surgery and so thankful that I found Dr. E. There is no better surgeon in my opinion! I can't wait for the summer so that I can finally wear spaghetti straps and t-shirts and strapless dresses! Oh and also can't wait to wear 1 sports bra to the gym instead of two! What a relief.

As I stated above, Dr. Engler is the best and I do not say this lightly. Everyone at the office is so wonderful. They never rush you, will answer any question you have and I never felt any pressure during the consults to have the surgery. It was all up to me. Finding a surgeon is a daunting task and I did my research and met with a couple of surgeons. I knew pretty much right away that Dr. E was the surgeon for me. Gut instinct/God nudge and I went with it and very happy that I did. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Incredibly gifted surgeon who is also kind and patient.
