So today is the day!!!!!!!
I have been going back and forth for over 7 years of when I would be ready to have surgery. I have 2 children, i'm a wife and I have a full time job. Surgery isn't necessarily going to be convenient with a 2 year old and a 6 year old, but my back is KILLING me. I have ALWAYS had large breasts, throughout college I managed to maintain a 34-D at 120 lbs until age 25.... more
Hi everyone! I am getting a breast reduction 2 weeks from today and could not be more excited! I decided to write this review because, though every review that I have read has been super helpful, most women who get this surgery are a bit older than I am or have at least had children first. As I am so young, I have faced many obstacles over the last few years in my journey to get this surgery.... more
I took after my grandmother in many ways - large breasts included. I always joked that I wanted boobs that said "hi, nice to meet you" but got a pair that said "nice shoes". I've lived with neck and back pain since being a teen. I'm very happy with this decision & the work. Sorry I waited so long. Pain levels dropped from the weight removed (roughly the weight of a can of soda from each... more
I am throughly pleased with my procedure and the excellent service I was shown by the Criswell staff and Novant Health! Being heavy chested made it tough for me to perform my job duties as a Police Officer. But now that o have had my surgery, I have a new found sense of self and exercising is a breeze. Before surgery I struggled to lose weight because the bulk of my weight was in my breast. I... more
Dr. Ditesheim puts you right at ease about the procedure. He listens and explains everything to you and doesn't rush you. I have a lot of health issues, which we knew it would take alittle longer for me to heal but I am so delighted with the results and Susie (the nurse) is the greatest. She makes you feel so comfortable that I call her my friend. Susie will do anything for you at anytime.... more
I was very nervous going about this procedure, everywhere I went for consultations were not able to produce what I wanted. Going to Dr. Bednar' office was amazing the staff took wonderful care of me and were truly trying to accomplish what I wanted out of this procedure. I was very comfortable here. more

O tried losing weight to see if my chest would go down it wouldn't it only madey back feel like sharp pins was polking in my spine.OH MY GOD HELP ME!!! more
I had a breast reduction. Being in the medical profession and working with many surgeons, Dr. Bryan Criswell is the best of the best. He answered every question possible (and I had many)----he put me at ease and his professionalism was top notch. After surgery, I had an unforeseen rare complication to the sutures and he was so attentive every step of the way to get everything under control.... more
I'm 33 years old ace have 3 kids. I've always had large breasts, but they got larger with each pregnancy and never went away. I got to the point where their size just interfered with my quality of life. Finding a bathing suit or even a coat that I could zip up all the way was a huge chore. I would avoid activities where I didn't have the right thing to wear or where I might be judged for... more
Best decision I ever made. I feel wonderful, my back pain is gone and all of my clothes fit so much nicer. I wished I would have done this sooner. From the very first visit Dr. Ditesheim and his staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable, explain the procedures and answered all of my questions. The care and concerns he shows all of just patients puts you at ease and just... more
I am 20 years old and my boobs were just too large for my 5'1 petite frame. I had back, neck, and shoulder pain. I was never able to find bathing suits, dresses or clothes that fit properly. This surgery was the best decision I have made. I am still recovering but everything looks great so far. I am extremely happy to have gone through this procedure and I am thrilled with how I look now. more
I've had large breasts my entire teenage and adult life. When I hit puberty, my girls seemed to grow and never stop. This has caused me much pain and discomfort, which I'm sure you all understand. I am currently 5'8, 185 pounds, and wear a 36H bra.
I seriously began considering a breast reduction about 6 months ago. I spoke with my primary care physician on June 4th about all the shoulder,... more
I had surgery almost 2 weeks ago to have a breast reduction. I have healed so much in that short amount of time. He did a fantastic job and I look amazing. I would never let anyone else lay a hand on me but him. He makes sure his work is perfect and he is very caring about his work and his patients all together. I was extremely pleased. His staff is also fantastic. They stood by me through it all. more
I have been large breasted my entire life and have wanted breast reduction surgery for at least the last 20 years! The last straw was when I went to my favorite bra shop, bought 2 32 JJ's and asked about a sports bra. They just looked at me and gently said "they don't come in your size".
My older brother died last summer and I have really made a number of life style changes since then.... more
My breast reduction put me in the hospital with leeches, due to him being on vacation, and his nurse not having another doctor look at me till his return. Which caused me to lose feeling in my breast, no nipples, and a hanging fat under my arms, which cost me an additional 1,000+. He may be a good doctor, but it doesn't hurt to get another opinion before your surgery. A lot of good reviews,... more
So today i took step one towards my new life with itty bitties! I set up a consultation with Charlotte Plastic Surgery. If any has used them please tell me how your experience was!! So Ready to get these things off of me. I have 44h (probably bigger) breasts...i'm not gonna lie at first i thought they were fine but time and back issues and crying because all shirts are to tight in the chest... more
Just found out I got approved today after years of wondering if I would be able to get this done!! I'm nervous and excited and a little scared so many emotions but most of all I'm happy and grateful that is was approved . I went through all the necessary steps the I learned here from reading reviews. My PCP referred me to my PS and also to a chiropractor which I did try but didn't really get... more
Dr. Bednar and staff were so caring, courteous and disarming when I was considering my breast reduction options. Not only was I made to feel comfortable, but my results were amazing. My decision for the reduction was to alleviate back aches and pains and also to be able to distance run again after having two kids. What I got was a new, beautiful body, no more pain and the ability to shop in a... more
I used to work with my surgeon and I love him. I've had large breasts always and was very overweight most of my life. I finally changed my lifestyle 4 years ago and lost 80lbs over 2 years. My bra size went from 40DD to 36DDD (the additional 'D' is purely from Lane Bryant changing their sizing). My breasts weren't as heavy as some, but they were very long. I hoped insurance would cover a... more
