Breast Reduction Surgery Reviews

My experience before, during and after my breast reduction surgery was great. Doctor Moody and her staff are excellent at what they do. I highly recommend doctor Moody.

Dr. Wallach was very professional and easy to talk to. He has a wonderful sense of humor which helps to lighten the mood yet he candidly expresses his opinions in a polite and matter of fact way. The surgery went smoother than I could have imagined and there were no complications. My mother was impressed at how meticulously he cleaned me up and bandaged me, it was like I had taken a shower and came out with smaller breasts! Because of my tight schedule, and being from out of state, he was even willing to see me on Christmas Eve morning two days post-op to make sure everything was okay. Dr. Wallach and his staff provided exceptional care with excruciating attention to detail. I would (and have) recommended him to both friends and family and I would subscribe to his services again should the need arise. I haven't looked back one day since my breast reduction and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

On Sept, 19, 2005, I had a breast reduction and a tummy tuck. I opted to have both done at the same time, which I'm very glad I did. 2 years before the procedure, I interviewed about 5-6 doctors in San Diego County. As I was about to make a decision, the money was not available as we had first thought. So I put my plans on hold. In July/Aug, 2005, our situation turned around, and I went back to looking for a doctor. I went back to the first doctor I interviewed. Dr. Pousti, and didn't need to look any further. Dr. Pousti stood out above the rest for the following reasons: 1. He took time with me, as a patient. 2. He has a very easy going, mild mannered personality.......calm! (Good for a surgeon) 3. He had good credentials 4. I read his testimonials and spoke with a couple of ladies separately (outside of the office), who also had work done by Dr. Pousti. 5. Even though I asked the doctor to do a few other little things while I was under, he told me it would put me at risk to be under anesthesia more than 5-6 hours. 5. His office is very organized 6. The staff is very pleasant, helpful and sensitive 7. He was the only doctor who was a carrier for my insurance, since my breast reduction was covered by my insurance. Over the years, I exercised and dieted, but was not able to lose my tummy. I had 2 children by c-section, and at age 43 had a complete hysterectomy. Even though I have good skin tone, at age 53, and because of hormone changes, I just couldn't tighten up the flabby skin from my belly through exercising and dieting. My clothes didn't fit, anymore, and I felt physically older than I was mentally. Therefore, I opted for the surgery. My biggest concern was being nauseated from the anesthesia, however, during recovery, I was given a pill to counteract that. Pain was not a concern for me, since I have a high tolerance for it.....however, because of all the exercising I had done previously through the years, there was soreness but nothing that I couldn't handle. The drains were annoying, but I wanted them left in as long as needed, to avoid any build up of fluid that might cause infection. I had to leave one abdominal drain in for 3 weeks instead of the estimated 2 weeks. But it all worked out for the better. Now, after 5 months, post op, I can play tennis, ride my bike and work out much easier, and without the "load" in front of me. The best part is being able to button up any shirt, and have a flat stomach. I lost 10 pounds right after surgery, and now that some of the swelling is going down slowly, AND with more exercise and dieting, I expect to lose more weight and inches. My husband is soooo happy for me, and he says that I look and act so much younger than my 53 years. Before the surgery, people were shocked at my age, but NOW, they are really shocked. They think I look 10 years younger! YIPEE!!! My advice to anyone before a tummy tuck, is to exercise a few months or more before your surgery. You'll need to use your leg muscles and back muscles after surgery.....ESPECIALLY, if you have breast suregery at the same time. After the tummy tuck, you have to walk hunched over, and that tires your back a bit. When the drains come out, you have more freedom to shower and move around. THANK YOU, DR. POUSTI AND STAFF! YOU GAVE ME BACK MY YOUTH!!! (I would also HIGHLY recommend recovering at "the Hideaway" if you have both surgeries at the same time.....ask the staff for information).

Dr. Cochran performed breast reduction surgery on me actually 23 yrs. ago. It changed my life! Before the surgery I was really shy. Afterwards, I could exercise again and lost weight and gained self esteem. I'll be 42 in August, and everything still looks good! I can never say thank you to the doctor enough.

To anyone who has ever considered this. I give Dr. Turkle and everyone I come into contact with at the office a 10. My surgery was a the best thing I have ever done. She does great work. I wish I would of did this years before I did. The after surgery care is the best. They are always there if you need something or just need to ask a question.

    Ariel Winter is the perfect example of young American beauty. The 18-year-old Modern Family star has both the look of a young innocent girl with the inherent allure of a newly mature adult woman. Her amazing eyes coupled with a face that still has the flush of youth is an unbeatable and beautiful combination. Unfortunately for Ariel, what has added considerably to her sensual and visibly stunning air of a young woman is her ample breasts.
