5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
This is my story and tips for preparing for breast reduction surgery and recovery. You should follow your doctors orders. I have always been big busted, I was wearing a 38DD when I had my surgery on 12/5. I may have been bigger than that but I am not sure as I was not professionally fitted for a bra for a long time. I am 48, 5’3” 180lbs, I gained weight over the last few years due to bac...
My consult and time with the doc was pretty straightforward; going in there, there was no doubt what I wanted. I told her she was the expert, I was just along for the perfect end result. I knew I just wanted to be small, and she agreed that a small B would suit me just fine (I'm only 5ft). I went with Doctor Marble because I spoke to 2 different women who had a reduction done by her, both with wonderful things to say. It would have been impossible to proceed with this if not for my medical insurance. I broke my foot about 3 weeks ago, so while I am walkin around with no boot, I have not been able to exercise in the least. That, coupled with my period due the same week of the surgery, have made my weight go up a bit. I wonder if this will effect the anesthesia? I'm not sure how they know how much to give, so I assume it has to do with height and weight. My biggest concern with the procedure is the recovery; I'm a massage therapist and own my own business. I need to be back at work ASAP, but took the week after surgery off. Obviously I know I can move my appointments if necessary, but I HATE doing that to my clients. My theory is this; if I can work through torn pec muscles and a broken foot, taking a week off to get back at it shouldn't be a worry for 1 client a day. I am hopeful that I can begin my conditioning workouts as soon as my foot heals (roughly the end of October, if we go by the 6-8 weeks of bone healing). I participate in MMA and BJJ, and hope the conditioning my body has received over the last few years has prepped me for such a surgery. I am down to 36 hours before I have to be checked in to the hospital, where they will be keeping me overnight. I hope and pray for an easy surgery, and hope even more that my experience may help someone else one day. As my lifestyle is largely different than most women, maybe this will help another person.
Hi, ladies! Settle in, this is the long post where I over-share my story because, let’s face it, if we didn’t love a bit of drama with our surgical recommendations, we’d just be on healthgrades. Ironically, I was a bit of a late-developer when it came to boobs. I was the last girl in my grade to get them, and I even had a sixth-grade boyfriend break-up with me because I was “flat as a door,” ...

Dr Marble and her nurses and P.A. Denise are OUTSTANDING. Dr. Marble did an amazing job with my large reduction - my new breasts look terrific even though they are still in the immediate post-op phase.

Dr. Kimberly Marble and Dr. Leefmans
Hi Ladies! My name is Kaci and I am 24 years old. I have a small frame and the extra weight from my breasts causes back/neck/shoulder pain, headaches, and rashes. I am so tired of feeling like this! I have been reading your posts and stories and I have been so encouraged by all of you! I have been dreaming of this surgery since I was 13 years old. I went to the doctors when I was 15 years old...

Dr. Marble does plastic and reconstructive surgery - she's not a cosmetic surgery "boutique." Her office is located right in the hospital. These are the reasons I decided to consult with her. I liked her immediately. She took the time to review (with me) the surgical notes from my 2 previous surgeries done in that hospital and discussed them with me to make sure we both had a clear understanding of how they could impact this new procedure. Office staff has been very nice and responsive. So far, so good!
