Breast Reduction: A Patient’s Perspective

by | Nov 9, 2022 | Breast Reduction | 0 comments

This beautiful patient came to Dr. Cassie Nghiem with complaints of large, heavy breasts. She’s thrilled with her results after an anchor incision breast reduction and shares her journey below.

Notice the difference just 3 weeks after surgery. The breasts are more proportional with her body, and the nipples are lifted. She still has minor bruising, which is normal during this stage of recovery. The scars are already paper-thin and hidden in her natural breast creases.

“Dr. Nghiem is spectacular. I am so incredibly happy with my results and wonder why I waited at all do this. She’s the consummate professional, taking great care to carefully explain the process, address my concerns, and answer any questions. She’s regularly communicative, and I’ve felt entirely supported throughout. My recovery was really smooth and easy, no doubt thanks to her skill. Now, about the final product: if I could have designed my dream breasts from scratch, they would’ve been the ones she created via my reduction. I seriously underestimated the lift effect that would accompany the reduction, and it’s been lifechanging. Chalk that up to a really skilled surgeon! Finally, I’m so grateful she, her team, and the anesthesiologists at GW accept insurance! Dr. Nghiem’s office largely took control of that process, making that one less stressor from me. I have DC Blue Cross (CareFirst) and to date have only been charged a co-pay here or there during this whole thing! Obviously I can’t say the same for anyone, but I know a plastic surgeon’s office committed to affordability is unfortunately a rarity for those seeking reductions. And I never felt like a second class citizen because of it; Dr. Nghiem completely understood that finances were a concern and even called my insurance company herself directly (!!!) when she felt they were being unclear.

Anyway, if you’re on the fence, I strongly encourage you to meet with the wonderful Dr. N for a consult. I’m so very happy that I did!!
