    I got a breast reduction with Dr. Katira. Overall, he is very friendly. However, he is a very busy person. The day of surgery, he was running late, so my surgery did start after the expected time. Overall, I can say that I’m happy with with my results. However, my nipples are very different. One is way bigger than the other. He said that he would be able to fix this issue once I heal, but I never received a call from him office since. When it was time to take my drains out, him nor his nurse was around. Therefore someone else had to remove them. Which was very painful. For this reason, I rated him 3 stars.
