I'd Do It Again in a Heartbeat - Seattle, WA

- 5 Oct 2011
My breasts were far too large for my frame - so large that they measured larger than my hips. I had upper back pain, tense shoulders, pain in my neck, tension headaches, strap indents, not to mention extreme difficulty finding clothes that fit! I'd been seeing specialists (chiropractor, massage therapy, etc) for months prior to surgery to no avail. I was ready for the ladies to go away!
Since my surgery, my back pain has disappeared and I haven't had a single tension headache. Life is good!
It's been 5 weeks since my surgery and already my scars look incredible. I'm amazed by how smoothly they've healed. The size is perfect (I'm about half the size I was before) and completely proportionate to the rest of my body. I am so incredibly happy with the results, and all of my family and friends think they look great.
P.S. The cost I've noted is my out-of-pocket expense. My insurance covered a lot because my procedure was deemed medically necessary.
I had been researching breast reduction for 6 years when I finally decided it was time to go through with the surgery. My RN recommended Dr. Peters and I am so glad she did. Dr. Peters and her staff were wonderful to work with. They got me a consultation quickly, kept me very informed and answered any and all questions I had, promptly returned my phone calls, and they even took care of my insurance for me. My only complaint is a small one, but the day of surgery there was some confusion as to the time of the procedure, because the time had been moved around the week prior. My self, the nurses, and Dr. Peters all had different times written down. This was handled very smoothly, though, and I doubt it happens often, if at all. I highly recommend Dr Peters and her team to any and all in the Seattle area looking for a breast reduction. I really would have the procedure done again if I needed it.
