So, I called Dr. Steinwald’s office to set up a consultation for top surgery…. And he is moving to Colorado next month and isn’t taking any new patients in Chicago. I am super bummed.
I really want go to him (because he does the inverted T method which leaves the nipple stalks intact) but he was already considerably more expensive than the other surgeons. If I have to add the cost of air travel and hotel and lost wages for two people (whereas him being in Chicago is just a three hour drive) it is going to push the cost into more than double the other guys. I could feasibly go to Medalie who is a 6 hour drive at half that cost.
I am going to have to open myself up to the possibility of either saving an extra chunk of money or exploring other surgeons who can do a radical breast reduction.
Sorry, just had to vent.
