Finding A Doctor

This is probably the most important decision when it comes to plastic surgery (or any surgery for that matter).  I needed to be completely comfortable with my doctor.  I was going to this person with one of my most personal problems.  Something that I was very embarrassed about.

I knew that I wouldn’t be comfortable with a male plastic surgeon.  I couldn’t have a man looking at my breasts and judging their sad state without walking out of his office completely humiliated.  I’d seen enough plastic surgery related shows with male doctors and I just never liked their demeanor.  I’m sure that there are male doctors NOT on TV that I could warm up to, but I wasn’t interested in dealing with my psyche in order to get plastic surgery.  Especially when there are so many wonderful female surgeons to choose from.

I was very happy with the surgeon I found online.  I liked what she had written on her website and I was also impressed with the fact that she did a lot of reconstructive surgery for cancer survivors.  I thought that if someone was in that line of work, they would be very detail oriented.

Another factor I considered was location.  If the kids were older I probably wouldn’t have thought as much about this, but I didn’t want to be hours away, in surgery, away from them.  Maybe this is a silly consideration, but it was important to me.

I found my doctor.  Next was the initial consultation.  THAT is the beginning of the knitty gritty and could possibly be quite an entertaining read.  Will continue soon…

    …oh, wait. We already knew that. We’ve been drawing entertainment from it for months now. Ha! 🙂

  2. I promise, you will NOT be disappointed with the consultation story. It is probably the funniest part of the whole process 😛

  3. REDUCTION. ha! You have no idea how many people have asked me to bring a doggy bag of boob home for them to use on themselves 😛
