Best Decision I've ever made! I've been big breasted my entire life. Grade school and high school was humiliating for me because I was teased about how large my breasts were. At age 31 I had my first child. I was a triple D/F before getting pregnant. I spent 23 weeks on bed rest and lost most of the muscle strength in my back. Post-partum, I was a 42G. My breasts were huge and long. They rested near my belly button. I couldn't even hold my son close to me because my breasts were in the way. This threw my center balance off and caused extreme pain in my back. One to two minutes were as long as I could stand and hold my son. I was in pain all the time. I couldn't sleep on my back because I felt like I was suffocating. When sleeping on my sides, I had to wedge a pillow in between my breasts for comfort. Clothes were horrible. Even the most modest neckline could be stretched to make me look trashy because my breasts were spilling out of them. On September 1, 2010, I met Dr. Koo and on October 21, 2010 she changed my life. I had a Breast Reduction. I waited way too long to have this done. The procedure went very well and the recovery was extremely fast. Dr. Koo kept telling me that I would be feeling wonderful within a day or two. I thought she was crazy. She was right. I was up, dressed & leaving the house within 2 days (this is only because I struggle a little with anesthesia). Within a week I was lifting my 20-month-old son. There is virtually no pain with this. What I felt was more like a deep bruising and my breasts were tender if my son bumped into me. Nothing a little Tylenol can't fix. I'm a new person! I have more energy and I can now carry my son around and hold him close to me. My insurance covered the cost of this procedure. I paid $175 co-pay to change my life. I spend that on groceries every 2 weeks. It was silly that I waited so long. If you are even remotely considering doing this, JUST DO IT!!! Most insurance companies will pay for it, it is same-day surgery, and the recovery time is nothing. Dr. Koo and her physician's assistant, Joanne, were wonderful!! They truly care about their patients. They answered any questions I had and Joanne took my call when I had a question. There was no waiting for a return call. I have already recommended Dr. Koo to several of my friends and will continue to do so. Did I also mention that it is a 2.5 hour drive ONE-WAY just to get to Dr. Koo's office from my home? She's worth it!!

Ever since my mid-twenties I have hated my large, sagging breasts. I always dreamed of a breast reduction and in May 2008 I found Dr. Friedman and had my ?dream? surgery. I cannot get over how symmetrical and natural they now look. He and his staff are so great at what they do and made me feel completely comfortable and confident that I picked the right surgeon. This surgery literally changed my life. I could not be happier

Before going under the knife, my husband and I did our research and educated ourselves on the doctors in our area.The result of our many consutations with other doctors, was Dr Arabitg. We both felt his were the safest hands. He explains the surgery,the recovery and the result so there are no surprises. Dr.Arabitg has done a tummytuck, Breast Augmentation,Botox, IPL and many facial Peels. He also did my husbands' facelift,eyes,Botox and fillers. We would NOT trust anyone other than Dr. Arabitg to alter any part of our body. We trust his opinion and have sent our own mothers to him. We recommend him to our friends. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is seeking to have plastic surgery. His staff is also very attentive, professional and kind. We have always been treated very well in their office.

Dr. Reid was absolutely wonderful. Not only was he warm and reassuring, he was an incredible surgeon. My scarring is so minimal, it's hard to believe I had surgery! Going from an 34E to a 34C as a 20 year old woman was absolutely the best decision I have ever made.

I would like to thank Dr. Koo and her wonderful staff for the care I received during one of the most important parts of my life. I underwent breast reduction surgery in April of 2010. The experience itself was wonderful. The outcome, well I could not ask for more. Dr. Koo was so gentle and understanding. When a woman has to face such a procedure as a breast reduction; to have someone understanding to your needs as well as likes and dislikes is phenomenal. Words cannot express my gratitude so I simply say THANK YOU!

I had Breast Reduction Surgery with Dr. Sofer, 6 months ago and I am so pleased. I suffered with back and shoulder pain since I was young and finally go up the nerve to do the surgery. Now I'm wondering what took me so long. I feel like I can do so much more. This is the first time I actually enjoy working-out and going to the beach without feeling self-conscious. There are no words to explain how it has changed my life. It seems like they just keep getting better looking and my back pain is gone. Dr. Sofer is a talented and wonderful surgeon and I think he's the best. I would do it all again if I had too.

    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.
