Kathy, 41, is married with a 2 ½ year old son, and she had been thinking about breast reduction surgery for a few years. As an avid runner, Kathy’s large breasts were a daily inconvenience and causing her frequent back and neck pain.
“It was something I dealt with every day. Running was a problem, clothes were a problem and just feeling self-conscious all the time was wearing me down. I did a lot of research on the Internet and really liked all the information on Dr. Parker’s site,” said Kathy.
Kathy made an appointment with Dr. Parker for a consultation and never looked back. She had thought that she’d have the appointment, see a few other surgeons and think about it for a few more years. It turned out that the warm, friendly staff at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery made Kathy feel so comfortable and secure that she opted to go ahead with the surgery right away.
Breast reduction surgery or mammoplasty is the best treatment for overly large, uncomfortable breasts. The benefits of a breast reduction surgery include pain relief, improved stability of the skeletal system, and improved lung function. Other benefits commonly noted by patients are reduced headaches and less neck, shoulder, and back pain.
“Once all my questions were answered, I really felt ready and jumped right into the process. I’m thrilled that I did. Now I can buy normal bras that actually fit, tops and dresses that I’m not pinning closed. It’s just a relief not to have to think about it ever again,” said Kathy.
Breast reduction surgery at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes 2-4 hours depending on the amount of reduction involved. Patients go home the same day, can usually shower the following day and return to normal activities within 4-5 days. Exercise is generally permitted after 10-21 days, depending on the type of activity.
“It’s the best thing I ever did, and I’m so pleased with the results. Dr. Parker and his staff are just the nicest people. Everyone there was so helpful and really went out of their way for me. I’d recommend Dr. Parker to anyone who’s even thinking about a breast reduction surgery. It looks and feels great. I never have to feel self-conscious or worry that people are staring at me again,” Kathy said.
