I just couldn't take having large breasts any more. They looked ridiculous and I felt horrible. During the day at work I would take off the shoulder straps of my bra for relief. Sometimes, I would even take off my bra for the ride home from work because I couldn't wait to get home. Besides the discomfort and pain, I also hated they way they looked. They drew too much attention that I did not want. In pictures I would use other people to shield me to minimize my breasts. I longed to wear cute tops and not feel like I was saying "Hey! Look at me! I have big boobs!" And don't get me started on bras. A 34G is not easy to come by and the prices are high. The website alone put me at ease that besides the physical pain, the other issues I was having were legitimate. The appointment was super easy to make. Dr. Whiteman further validated that I did, truly, have breasts that would cause me mental and physical pain. That may sound silly, but I think I put the surgery off for so long because I thought I was just being a wimp and I should be happy with what I have. It felt great to have him reassure me that my feelings were normal and justified. Between the website, written information and talking with Dr. Whiteman and staff, I felt I was fully prepared for what was to come. He was even able to describe some of the sensations I would have afterward. I didn't believe him at the time. I thought, how could be possibly know how I would feel? Well, he was right. He may not have physically undergone the procedure, but he has had enough experience with patients to hear what they were saying and use that information to help future patients. Recovery was relatively easy considering what I had done. From the first day I was happy with my decision. The change was dramatic and I loved it. The first week is the most discomfort I had and that wasn't even bad. By week 3 I felt almost 100%. I don't know what bra size I am because I have not been measured. I have been fine with sports bras and bralettes from a regular store. I could never do that before. I never thought I would ever be able to wear a bralette! I did not have to go and buy a whole new wardrobe, but the clothes I already had look and feel better to wear. The same with bathing suits. Before, I had to stuff them in and only wear halter tops that tied painfully around my neck because my breasts had to be 'hoisted' up. I don't have ANY pain in my back/shoulders anymore! When I wear a bra I don't feel it on my back at all. It is such a wonderful feeling. Nipples. No one thinks/talks about the nipples. Mine were ridiculous. From the weight of my breasts they were elongated and huge. They are cute and round now. I love them. I can take pictures without my boobs being up front and center. I can wear off the shoulder tops that are in style now with a bandeau bra and feel confident and comfortable. If you have putting this off, don't. You deserve to feel better, inside and out.
Definitely do you homework before considering using this doctor for a breast reduction. My breast are asymmetrical and the stitches are coming apart. I am young and don't have the confidence that I hoped this surgery would give me. My nipples are two toned and don't look natural. On the bright side, the staff is nice enought and I look smaller in clothes. I am just so unhappy when I think about the time I took off to have this done, and the money I spent too.
Dr. Whiteman and staff exceeded my expectations. During my initial consultation, all of mine and my husband's questions and concerns were throughly addressed. I left the office excited and confident in my decision. I had a breast augmentation, lift and liposuction of my abdomen. I was able to return to work after one week off. Dr. Whiteman educated and prepared me for each phase of the recovery period. It was great knowing what to expect. It is now three months postop and I could not be happier with my results. I have so much more confidence. Getting dressed is fun now! Dr. Whiteman, thank you for the incredible experience and results.
I might have been worried at undergoing surgery but that Doctor Whiteman and his staff put me totally at ease. The day of the surgery could not have been smoother from check in to pre-op the entire nursing staff was fantastic! Soon after my surgery I could see that the result were even better than he promised and even more than I had hoped for! Thank you Dr. Whiteman
I would definitely recommend Dr. Whiteman for liposuction. Yes it can be costly and very painful, but the results are amazing! I feel great and my old skinny clothes fit again. I had the procedure done 3 months ago and I am still seeing more results as time goes by. Dr. Whiteman is very honest and available to answer any questions or concerns. The hospital staff was also great, caring and made me feel comfortable before getting the procesure done. I recommend Dr. Whiteman to be your go to liposuction surgeon. He did a fantastic job and changed my life!
