“I'd had pain and discomfort because of my breasts for a long time. But I was also scared of getting a breast reduction. Finally I looked for the best breast reduction Washington DC had and found Dr. Feledy. He made me feel very comfortable and I felt understood. Now 6 months later, I feel like a new person! I wish I did this years ago!”
