Hello I'm a 49 year old female that had a breast...

Hello I'm a 49 year old female that had a breast reduction in March 2013 I have suffered with large breasts since I was in my late teens They ended up being about a G size I was always suffering rashes under the breasts and terrible back and neck pain. Not to mention all the comments I have had to endure I had thought about a breast reduction for years and decided to find a good plastic surgeon I got a referral from my GP and was given Mr Stephan Salerno s. details. I went to see him and he explained everything in fine detail He told me to have a think about it and if I wanted to go ahead to make a appointment I didn't need to think about it he made me feel right at ease so I went ahead and I had the surgery I infant have got down to a C size I just asked him to try and get me as small as he could I remember waking up and feeling my chest wow they were small I infact could feel the instant relief from the weight of them and I could breath Without the weight of them laying on me and I could lay on my back which I could not do as they would make me breathless I was nt in to much pain just a little discomfort as he had my pain under control Really I was just so happy and relieved In think I was in hospital 3 days. After i went home a few days later I had a sore swelling in the right breast which was sore when I put my arm down that ended up being a Hematoma Blood clot I rang Mr Salerno and he checked it out straight away he did try and drain it but with no luck. So I went back to theatre and he cleaned it all out. Then I went home that night With antibiotics The next day I was in terrible pain I did get a infection and I rang Mr Salerno at 10 pm he was fantastic and told me to meet him at the hospital I stayed in about a week on I V antibiotics which worked really well . I had a few small problems but like with any surgery there are things that can happen I knew that as like I said all had been explained to me from the beginning I was never worried about anything because I new I was in very safe hands I am so glad I went ahead with the surgery because it has changed my life I am happier so much more comfortable it is the best thing I have ever done for myself and so glad I had such a fantastic professional caring plastic surgeon thank you Mr Salerno you are the best Wish I had done it years ago suecandlepines
