Although always self-conscious, my breast "issues" got much worse a few years ago, whenI developed a rare endocrine tumor that caused a 70 lbs weight gain. I was a 44DDD. The tumor is gone and so is the excess weight, but, I only lost a few inches in the bust. At 5'6 and 130 lbs., I am currently a 34F and cannot find clothes that fit. If insurance will cover, I will get surgery and hope to be... more
I went for a consultation last week with a PS. He was professional, friendly, and spent a lot of time answering my questions. The receptionist told me it would take 2 weeks to a month to hear back from my insurance about approval. Just 3 days later she called to tell me that the surgery was approved by insurance. I am still going to check out other doctors before scheduling the surgery. I am... more

As a teenager I was pretty hefty in the breast area. As an adult and after kids I felt like I had two midgets wrestling on my chest. I'm currently a 40ddd and I am looking forward to my reduction with Dr. Horndeski in Sugarland, Tx. He stood out to me due to his extrodinary procedure of not having the anchor scar that majority of breast reduction candidates have. Due to his engineering degree... more
Dr. Horndeski performed a breast lift and reduction for me in January 2012. It turned out terrible. The scars were terrible with puckering and pieces of skin just sticking out. The worst thing is that he put my nipples TOO HIGH and too far inward! This makes it very hard to find bathing suits or other clothes. I had to go to a reconstruction specialist to get some help, but it could not all be... more
I have had large breasts since a teen and have grappled with having a breast reduction for over 15 years. After gaining weight in the past year, my breast size increased significantly and I was very uncomfortable with the body pain, the unwanted attention and being unable to keep a shirt buttoned. My goal was to mitigate my back and neck pain and become a "perky C", having manageable breasts... more

When I saw all his before and after pictures in the office. I was sold! I scheduled my 'Ultimate Lift' reduction that same day. I was amazed at my results! I was a 48DDD and now I'm a perky 46D! I'm a big girl, so I didn't want to be too small. He made sure the size of my new breasts were appropriate for my body size.
I never imagined results like this were... more
