"40, 4 Kids, Breast Reduction 3/10/16 ~ Adios B(r)EASTS of Burden! - Dr. Yaker came recommended to me by a friend I trust explicitly that had him perform lipo on her. She has met numerous other women that have had work by him also, and they all gave him a glowing review, too! I follow my gut instinct, and I had a really positive feeling about Dr. Yaker & his staff. I highly recommend him! - - Breasts have been an issue for me pretty much my entire life. At the age of 8, my breasts began to form and I became very self conscience about it because it wasn't happening to any of my other friends. I remember asking my mom to buy me a bra, and she ignored me and refused to. I became really ashamed as I could not hide my growing breasts. Fast forward to Jr. High school and the dreaded locker room. I was 11 years old and I STILL did NOT have a bra. I was so embarrassed. When I was 12, my mother finally took me bra shopping. This same year, my mother who was very small chested (and small framed) decided to get breast implants. I'll never forget her talking with our neighbors about getting it done and the husband said "Why, because your daughter is bigger chested than you are?" And she told me THAT comment was what sealed the deal for her to get one.By 13 I was wearing a 34C and getting a TON of negative attention from boys. I hated it. I wore clothes that would purposely hide by breasts. The next year when I was in high school, I remember being a friend's house in the pool and I was wearing a bikini. The guys were calling me "Droopy", because by comparison to my friend's who were smaller and perkier, I was droopy. THAT made me even MORE self conscious. By the age of 18/19 I was wearing a D cup. I never exposed my breasts and always tried to hide them, even in intimate situations - and even now at age 40 - I do the same to this day!Over the years, my weight has fluctuated - between having an underactive thyroid & Hashimotos, to 4 children, they look beat down and have literally had the life sucked out of them. But aside from the emotional issues I have had in regards to my breasts throughout the course of my life, and aside from the cosmetic aspect of their appearance, never finding bras that fit quite right and support them - they have been causing a lot of physical issues for me. I have to wear 2 bras at a time - an underwire one, then a sports bra over the top, so that I can have some lift and support. Clothes NEVER fit right - I have to get larger sizes to accommodate my breasts, and I am limited to what types of clothing I can wear. No cute off the shoulder, strapless, back cut outs, etc. The under boob sweat is ridiculous, and I have dermatological issues now - fungal growth that smells (totally disgusting & foul) and irritation, chafing and painful skin erosion. I have been to a neurologist because I was getting headaches with a vengeance again and I was having issues with my left arm going numb and tingling. Turns out, I have a pinched nerve, likely from the bras I wear to support the weight of these beasts. Creating tension in my neck/shoulder & upper back. I also have very dense, fibrocystic breasts. I often have breast pain. For my yearly mammo, I am then always referred out to get an ultrasound. This past year, my right breast (which has been getting smaller, actually) found 2 cysts in it. Both my mother & her mother have had breast cancer, so also by getting a reduction, it will help to reduce the risk.I'll never forget breast feeding my children I was so embarrassed because my boobs hung so low, I had to support my boob to hold it up AND the baby. Needless to say, I am at a point in my life that they are wreaking so much havoc on me in every way, I need to be free of them! I want to become more active and just be FREE of these damn things!Despite having letters from physicians, and test results, BCBS denied coverage for this procedure stating they felt it was only cosmetic. I appealed, and then requested an IRO which I have not heard back on yet, but even if I go broke getting this done, it will be worth it to me. Of all the stories I've read and others I've spoken with, I've yet to have someone say they regretted getting this done. It still hasn't really sunk in for me yet that this is happening, because I can't imagine having the freedom this will bring me. Just in looking at clothes on-line I realized my perspective in how I look for clothes is changing. I've always been so limited and would skip past stuff because I knew I wouldn't be able to wear it.I have read so many amazing testimonies on this site, and I can't wait to share the rest of my journey with you!Steph"- T. / RealSelf / Feb 24, 2016
"My wife recently had multiple procedures with Dr. Yaker which all went amazingly well - but this is not what the review is about. You always hope end results are going to be very good but this man - skilled surgeon, artist and humanitarian was many steps above the average. He took considerable time to insure that I understood the procedures in detail and answered all of our questions to our complete satisfaction. The Doctor is so very detailed in everything he does and if he has any ego it certainly wasn't visible. I heartily recommend Dr. Yaker as does my wife, spending just a few minutes with him will convince you that this is the right choice for you."- D.G. / Google / Jan 11, 2020

"Great doctor and staff. Couldn’t be more please with current and past procedures. Not only have they done major surgery but also minor procedures. Dr. Yaker has always been able to correct past mistakes easily. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Kristin the on call nurse is top notch. Wouldn’t think to go anywhere else."- D.B. / Google / Sep 30, 2019

Suite of Procedures
During the initial consultation, a tailored procedure plan is created to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. Numerous procedures can be combined in the Executive Edge. These can range from surgical (i.e. chin augmentation, liposuction and a facelift), to nonsurgical (i.e. chemical peels, injectable fillers and BOTOX). The Executive Edge was created to restore a younger, more refreshed appearance through a safe and effective combination of procedures.
Executive Edge During/After Surgery
All cosmetic procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility. Surgery will require general anesthesia and a longer recovery period while nonsurgical options will not. For this reason, it is common for patients to undergo surgery in one setting, and facial rejuvenation in another. Patients are encouraged to plan their procedures to allow for time off from work. This way, they can recuperate at home and heal in private.

Executive Edge FAQ's
Will I Look Plastic?
The goal of plastic surgery is to create a natural result. If you are considering surgery for your face, it is important to find a surgeon who has this precise expertise, as well as a good reputation. Cosmetic surgery, while the most aggressive form of treatment, can create the most dramatic results. A skilled surgeon will provide an outcome that is natural, soft and visibly appealing.
Facelift at 50?
There are numerous facelift procedures available, and each can be altered depending on age and progression of facial sagging. Some men may feel they need a full facelift, when they only need a forehead lift or a lower facelift. In addition, some simply need work done around their eyes. For that, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) may be the right answer. After a full assessment, we will provide a recommendation that meets the patient’s aesthetic goals.
Will I Look Younger?
Men with younger competition may contemplate cosmetic surgery to create a younger appearance. Depending on what problem areas are being addressed, cosmetic surgery creates subtle results that allow men to look fresh, awake and alert. Many of our procedures will simply provide that “glow” many feel they lack. While cosmetic surgery can’t replace the years, it can give patients a boost of much-needed self-confidence to make a positive impact in life.
