Love my breast reduction!!
by CKP at Citysearch
I am in 100% agreement with all of the reviews before mine!
I am a 40 year old woman who has been researching breast reduction for the past 15 years. I had been a comfortable C cup during my teens and college years but began growing despite maintaining my same weight and after the birth of my daughter I was up to a 32DDD. After a year of breast feeding and subsequent weening I expected my chest to become smaller but this never happened, and the past 6 years have been a nightmare of hospital visits and medical therapy to control the back and neck pain I have had.
Once I knew I was done having children I immediately began making appts for consults with surgeons I had heard and read about for years. All were doctors who are said to be top breast surgeons in NYC and I was impressed with all of them during my mtgs, even seeing one twice for a 2nd consult before thinking I would choose him. At the end of the day though, something I couldn’t put my finger on held me back from committing to any of them and they had all emphasized the scarring I would have as a result of the traditional technique they were accustomed to performing. As a result, I decided to do some more research on a newer procedure that I had started reading about called the Lejour vertical reduction, which produces 50% less scarring. It’s a relatively newer procedure compared to the traditional anchor technique and therefore there are fewer surgeons who truly specialize in it. In doing my research and reading countless reviews of these surgeons, I noticed the same few names mentioned over and over as being the experts in this technique. Dr. Walden was consistently top of the list so I scheduled a consultation.
After a half hour with Dr. Walden I had no question in my mind she was the one for me and I called to schedule a surgery date the next morning. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Like the other reviewers on here have said, everything about her – her staff, work environment, the hospital she operates in – is absolutely top-notch. From the respect they show for your time when you have appts and the non-hurried time they spend with you while there addressing your questions, to the competence and extraordinary surgical skills Dr. Walden has in spades – I never once felt anything other than excitement about having this procedure done with her.
I am now just over 3 weeks post-op and I couldn’t be happier with my results. My breasts are the ones my husband and I remember from college, only better. My recovery has been a breeze and they look absolutely beautiful (or as my husband says, “outrageously hot” 🙂 and the incisions are as delicate and fine as they come.
Dr. Walden and her practice are a female patient’s dream come true and I will absolutely return to her again should the need or want for any other procedure ever arise! She’s the best of the best in my opinion!
