Breast Reduction Surgery Experience Female1: I chose to have a breast reduction for several reasons. It is something that I thought about for years and put off for a lot of reasons. And decided to finally have a consultation and once I came to Dr. Delgado and talked about the process and the reasons why and the health benefits, at that point I've made my final decision and I really chose I think in the long run to not only feel better but hoping that it’s also good for long term health. I feel like the surgery has helped my physical health so far, it’s only been five months from the standpoint that I just feel lighter. I feel better. I like to hike and kayak and it’s so much more comfortable to feel like 30’s with a much smaller breast size. I think the emotional health from having a surgery like this is something that I’ll probably experience. It’s an ongoing process and I’m five months out of a surgery that it took me years to decide to do. I'm amazed really everyday when I go out. This feels great. This feels really good. And I think just that I feel that way, obviously, it must be changing my emotional health. I don’t think I was having emotional distress beforehand, but I feel good. I think it would be a long term process. Female2: I had a previous surgery with Dr. Delgado. And I was very satisfied. My husband is a physician and is very particular about who he would have me see and we just thought that he was the very best and like I said, his whole staff is wonderful and you’d just immediately feel comfortable and that you know that you’re going to be well taken care of. Female1: My initial consultation with Dr. Delgado was very positive. Again, I had thought about this surgery, the possibility for years, he had come highly recommend in from my doctor in Sta. Rosa abd I didn’t know what to expect at all when I came in. I think that what was great was I felt right away that he understood what I was feeling. And of course I realized he’s met with many people but still on personal level, I really felt that he understood and the questions that he asked made me feel that the concerns I had or even the concern of having the surgery does not minimize at all. I mean I guess I feel like there might be some, I didn’t want to be vain about having a surgery like this. I put it off for years thinking there are bigger issues, but when I came to the consultation, we talked about a lot of the reasons why women in my position come to this point. And so I was very comfortable in meeting with him and he was very easy to talk to. That was really fantastic. When I left, I felt really certain that I want to have the surgery. Female2: I feel that Dr. Delgado really gives you the time that you don’t feel with a lot of other doctors and he explains everything very well. And again, his staff prepares a literature that is very comprehensive, easy to understand and follow and I think that is important because a lot of times, when you’re going through a life changing experience, your thought process isn’t always crystal clear and you forget things that are said. So, by having this comprehensive written material, you can go through it and be able to follow everything step by step and alleviates a lot of concerns and questions you might have. Female1: The surgical process and the recovery, I feel went as I would have expected, actually better than I expected. Again, this was my first surgery and I did feel that I was well-educated coming into the office, reading everything I could about having the surgery and I feel that everyone in the office made it very clear what would happen once I was in the recovery phase, I chose to stay very nice so I have an opportunity to do some recovery here at the center. It was actually much better. I had very little pain and it went well. Female2: The surgery process and recovery was so much better than what I expected again because I was just thinking I was going to be in pain and didn’t know how long that was goin
