I finally decided to have breast reduction surgery because for more years than I would like to remember I always felt self-conscious about my body. As mid-life crept up on me I developed some medical issues involving neck and back pain and I always felt the weight of my large breasts was not helping that situation at all. Probably for about 2 years I started to think about breast reduction and even then I knew that it would have a major impact on my life. I toyed with the idea and worried about how my husband would react about what I was thinking of exploring. I also thought how I would most likely finally feel better about how I looked. Once I started to think about the idea of breast reduction I also began to think about how I would find a plastic surgeon to do the surgery. As I have a medical background I am very lucky that I have a little knowledge of the process involved. Dr Ellis Choy was highly recommended by one of my closest friends who works in the operating theatre in my local private hospital so she had first-hand knowledge of Dr Choy and also the excellent reputation that precedes him. I also knew of someone who had breast reduction surgery with Dr Choy 2 years previously and was extremely happy with the outcome. Obviously when thinking about having the surgery I knew how important it was to feel confident in the surgeon who would be doing the operation. Since my very first consultation with Dr Choy I felt extremely comfortable. I thought I would be embarrassed but I was not at all. The care I have received from Dr Choy and his team has been excellent. I have had phone calls to check on my progress and also as I developed a post op infection I have had many visits to check on how things were going with Dr Choy’s nurse. I have been really impressed with the post op care. The impact that this surgery has already had on my life is actually not just a physical one but also an emotional one. I literally feel as if I have had a weight lifted off my shoulders. For the first time I feel good about my body and even feel a bit vain. I have had amazing pleasure in being able to buy new clothes, swimmers and bras. I have had family and friends comment on how I look and also on how my body language has changed. I now look forward to this new chapter in my life and how I am going to lose some weight and try to increase my fitness and enjoy life. I can’t thank Dr Choy and his team enough for giving me a new lease of life! Thank you so much!
