My experience with Breast reduction and Tummy tuck surgery

This is a test and I will be adding to this blog as time permits. I will add my comments on the surgery that Dr. Rodriguez performed 3 months ago.

As a senior (a little over 60 years old) I had given continued thought and prayer to having Breast reduction surgery for a number of years (at least 30 or more). In the past few years the thought and prayers became more and more on my mind and approximately 2 years ago I went as far as having a consultation with a plastic surgeon. I don’t know if it was my frame of mind or exactly what all the reasons were, but I was not comfortable with the surgeon, his staff, or even the thought of continuing on with this surgery. I didn’t go back for a 2nd visit…

One of my sister’s and I were discussing this operation and she told me she had a friend that had it and was very happy with the results and with the surgeon that performed the surgery. I asked some questions and got the name and number. Of course it was Dr. Rodriguez. It still took some prayer and thought to even make the first phone call. Even from the first phone call, I got a better feeling this time. Kelly was very kind as she talked to me about scheduling my first visit. (I still wasn’t 100% sure that I would be able to go through with it.) Even though I knew in my heart that the time had come when the backaches and the slumping at my desk at work needed to be taken care of. I knew that this was what I needed to do, but the thought of getting cut on didn’t thrill me too much.

At my first visit to the office, Dr. Rodriguez and his staff made me feel that it was ok. I believe the worst part was undressing and discussing my body (at this time it was just the Breast reduction) with the doctor & his nurse. Dr. Rodriguez put my concerns to rest and validated my feelings as to why I was considering this surgery. On the 2nd visit my husband came with me because I thought it was important for him to meet Dr. Rodriguez and feel comfortable that I was in good hands.
