This 61 year old woman had long standing back, neck and shoulder pain due to her extremely large breasts. She had been considering breast reduction surgery for years and finally decided it was time. Like many patients, she sought help from her gynecologist. Dr. Mahony has a great relationship with many gynecologists who are familiar with her and have seen her work. After receiving the referral, this woman called the office and scheduled her consultation with Dr. Mahony.
As intimidating as she felt to go see a plastic surgeon, she was comforted and felt at ease throughout the whole process by the warm and friendly staff. After meeting with Dr. Mahony, who was able to examine her, discuss all her options and answer all her questions, she immediately felt like a weight had been lifted off her shoulders… although that was still to come!
She knew Dr. Mahony was the right surgeon for her and quickly scheduled her surgery. Her surgery day came before she knew it. She was very concerned about the post-operative pain but was pleasantly surprised with how little discomfort she had! Her recovery was minimal and she had such a relief in the pain of her back, neck and shoulders. Now three months later, she feels like a new woman and like many breast reduction patients, she wished she hadn’t waited so long to have her surgery!
