Looking Forward to Final Outcome but Happy So Far - Grand Rapids, MI

I had breast reduction surgery because of back and...

I had breast reduction surgery because of back and neck pain, shoulder grooves, skin rash under breast and my breasts were not proportionate to my body. I am only 5 weeks out from surgery and I am pleased with the result so far. I would have liked to have had some of the knowledge regarding recovery that I have gained since the surgery, prior to the surgery. For instance Arnic Montana herb for bruses and swelling. Bromilean with quercertin for swelling and healing.

I would do it again but I feel I would benefit the second time around with what I have learned. I also think that the recovery time is grossly under estimated.

I am experiencing a tender to the touch, red, warm area on my left breast. This breast was really swollen and extremely brused right after surgery and 3 wks after surgery I had a puppy jump up on me and hit me in this breast. Now 5 weeks post op most of my brusing has healed, but where the puppy hit me I am having the a fore mentioned red area. This area seems to be getting larger in circumference. Is this a sign of infection? Should I see my doctor for an antibiotic just to be safe?

I am now 6 months out from my breast reduction surgery. I have to say that during the healing process I was skeptical that I would heal the way the doctor said it would occur, but he was right on target on every issue. My breasts look great and other than the incision areas being a little red/pink I have healed. Shoulder and back tension and pain are gone. I am very pleased and would recommend Doctor Renucci for any procedure. His staff is very professional and friendly. Excellent!!

Mr Rooster What does "very interesting" mean? Not much of a post :(

This May 2011 will be two years out from my breast reduction and I am very happy with my result!! All of my concerns along the way were addressed by Dr. Renucci and my healing process progressed just as he said it would. I also had a abdominalplasty with lipo of the flanks in October 2010 with Dr. Renucci and I am really happy with the result. I would highly recommend Dr. Renucci, he up holds a standard of excellence not often seen in the world of medical practice. He is a credit to his profession as well as a compassionate human being. His staff is also a reflection of his standard of excellence.

He really was concerned about how my breasts would look as well as the functional aspect of the surgery and he has had a lot of experience. You can tell he is passionate about what he does. Not just in it for the pay check. Very compassionate.
