I am a 52 year old woman who has been waiting to do this surgery since the birth of my first child 29 years ago. My sized 34C breasts blew up to a 36E! After 3 more pregnancies (and breast feeding) my breasts finally settled down to a sagging 36DD. I suffered neck and back pain for years causing me to seek physical therapy, after which my insurance company approved a breast reduction.

However, I was unwilling to trade my back pain for the horrible vertical scar that plagued many women I know who have had the procedure. I felt the scars were disfiguring and I would rather address the pain with costly chiropractic treatments and yoga classes than to have frankenstien-boobs!

It was while researching various scar treatments that I saw an image on the realself.com and wondered how on earth the woman's breasts could look so beautiful and had no obvious signs of scarring. It was then that I rediscovered Dr. Horndeski who is the only doctor in the world who does breast lifts and reductions without the hideous vertical scar. I remembered seeing him on a morning tv show about 10 years ago discussing his "horndeski method."

Ecstatic, I called his office and did a consultation over the phone/skype. He explained that by using his method, one need not remove breast tissue to stop the back pain. 6 months later I flew into his offices in Sugarland, TX ready to have my breast lift.

It was one week ago that I had the surgery. I was shocked and so happy with how beautiful my breasts looked. My girlfriend who accompanied me says, "wow they look like you are a teenager again!" It is true! They are high and tight and perky again and my back pain disappeared instantly!!!! Also I notice almost instantly that my nipple sensitivity has not been compromised -- in fact, my nipples are now more sensitive than ever! I remain a 36DD but now my breasts are more compatible with my athletic build and being higher on my chest wall, I am able to wear clothes that I actually like instead of settling for less flattering styles due to the position of my breasts.

Dr. Hordeski is truly a gifted surgeon. He put his engineering background to work and came up with a method to re-create youthful, perky breasts while solving many problems i.e. back pain, neck pain and droopy breasts. With the pectoral muscles now holding up my breasts, instead of the skin, I am certain they will stay in this position for a very long time. I am so happy and grateful to have found him.

I will post pics in about a week when the steri-strips come off!

One year after the surgery I am feeling fantastic! My breasts are now lightweight (even with no reduction) and I have ABSOLUTELY NO MORE NECK AND BACK PAIN!!!! I feel so free and sexy and youthful! My pre-surgery visualization was to go bra-less while wearing a tee shirt (without looking lewd and crazy) and this summer I have had plenty of opportunities to do so. It's like a dream come true! My favorite thing is to flash my girlfriends and show them my new boobs. Without fail, their response goes something like this: "OMG I want those!"

I have a bit of scarring around the nipples which happened because I removed the steri-strips too soon (I think) but the main scar is hidden in the fold underneath my breasts. Even so, I am ecstatic with the results.

I recently visited another surgeon in my hometown for a tummy tuck consultation and the nurse looked at me and said, "I have been looking at breasts for over 20 years and I have NEVER seen a breast lift that looked like this...I thought you had implants!" Well she confirmed for herself when she examined me, that there were no implants and when I offered to provide her with Dr. Horndeski's contact information, she rushed to get her pen and pad LOL! I just LOVE IT!!!!

Its very disappointing that my medical insurance approved me for a traditional breast reduction surgery which would have left me with that awful vertical scar, but reject requests for the innovative Hordeski method of breast lift. I for one, liked my breast size and was torn between reducing back and neck pain at the cost of settling for smaller breasts. In my opinion, insurance companies have one objective, which is to maintain the status quo -- even when it results in awful scarring and removal of substantial amounts of a woman's breast volume. They are so backwards, stuck in their ways and unwilling to consider the fact that with the technique he invented, there is no longer a need to remove breast tissue to eliminate back and neck pain. Shame on them! And to all of the insurance companies out there I say: "Join the 21st century and do your homework to see what new techniques are actually working!!!!!!"

I still keep in touch with Dr. H and his wonderful team to keep them updated and let them know how happy I am. I think the Horndeski method is nothing short of miraculous!
