I can honestly say I have had large boobs since I could remember. Most of my life was spent wearing 2 sports bra’s to keep them held up and sucked in because of how much I disliked the orientation of them/ how bad the weight of them caused discomfort. I am 5’2 and about a year and a half ago I weighed a good 158 (not the most ideal for my size). I realized I that if I ever wanted to get any kind of breast procedure done I needed to get down the ideal body weight I desired. January of 2014 I had weighed in at 135lbs but due to the substantial weight loss I had breast that hung (literally). My mom, whom had worked for Dr. Horndeski 15+ years ago, suggested we meet him because she knew he would be able to give me a positive incite on what I could do to have my number of issues fixed. The moment I took my shirt and 2 sports bras off he immediately said I was a “perfect candidate for the UBL”. I went from being skeptical about getting ANYTHING done to them to walking out hopeful and excited for the youthful looking boobs that were to come my way!
Being that I was a college student attending A&M, I decided I would have the procedure over Spring Break while my mother and father could tend to me during my one week off. It was about an hour drive from my parents house in League City to the hospital, which we had no problem getting too.
March 7th had arrived and nerves had kicked in but the moment Dr. Horndeski and Elisa arrived describing and drawing out what they were doing my demeanor turned to anxious and excited. My procedure ended up being 5 hours (little longer than planned) due to the immense amount of breast tissue they explained I had. Coming out of the procedure I actually felt fine! Pain was about a 5 of 10 (woohoo). I did however have a complication which had me back in the hospital Sunday morning (2 days after my surgery). Dr. Horndeski examined my breast and made the decision take take me back into surgery at 7am because my right one had developed a small blood clot causing my nipple to be discolored and the pain to be a little bit worse than coming right out of the previous surgery. I had faith in him the whole time because he truly cared about my wellness and knew what needed to be done to ensure the success of my procedure. After that minor delima, he had me back home that night and I was off pain medicine by the 2nd day.
After I had my drains pulled out, I honestly felt great! I was able to attend school just 8 days after surgery and thanks to my roommates had no problem following the “no lifting your arms rule or anything greater than 10 lbs”.
7 weeks out of surgery, and even through the dilemma I had I will stand before a crowd of strangers and say this was the best decision of my life. My boobs look beautiful and my comfort level is tremendously better!
I am extremely excited and happy about my progress and hope for others who share my same issue to seek the hands of this doctor right here:)
