I will be having a reconstruction after mastectomy. Today I went to a different PS and she suggested that I do a two step reconstruction...tissue expanders, then silicone implants. I originally wanted saline but the doctor recommended the other. I didn't qualify for the DIEP or TRAM flap due to... READ MORE

I am 32 years old with 2 children ages 5 and 8 months. I have been wanting to have my breast redone for a very long time, I had a breast reduction about 14 years ago and they do not look the way I wanted them to. I decide to have children first before getting them revised. I have been searching... READ MORE

I had to have a double mastectomy, and Dr. Capizzi and his staff made the reconstruction process do-able and as easy as it could be. Great technical abilities, wonderful compassion and a marvelously caring staff helped during a very difficult time in my life. Would recommend him for anything... READ MORE

I was interested in DIEP Flap because I've had 2 kids, had gained a bit of weight, and saw it as a good opportunity to not only start over with a new body, but also have breasts created from my own tissue rather than implants. Keeping my own nipples was very important to me rather than having... READ MORE

Originally had breast implants performed by another surgeon. He totally destroyed my breast. One was larger than the other. Nipples were completely scarred w no areola and huge! Thankfully, I found Dr. Ali Sadeghi who performed reconstruction. The results were awesome! He did a remarkable job! READ MORE

Dr. Khouri redid my breast reconstruction and has made me whole again. My breasts look and feel natural - something I never thought possible. My implants were cold, hard and looked fake, now my breasts are warm and soft. I've even regained some sensation. I'm so happy and am more confident than... READ MORE

Having a new breast cancer diagnosis is traumatic! However, I have been immensely impressed following a double mastectomy 4 weeks ago that included amazing breast reconstruction results provided by Dr. Robert Whitfield and his staff. I chose Dr. Whitfield because I could tell from our first... READ MORE

I chose to have immediate bilateral breast reconstruction with tissue expanders following my double mastectomy in October of 2013. Following tissue expansion over the next several months, I was later fitted with Allergan silicone-filled ("gummy bear"), high-projection breast implants which are... READ MORE

After cancer robs you of many things including your breast, reconstruction is a way of feeling whole again. I had two-stage reconstruction. At the time of my mastectomy I had tissue expanders inserted. After weekly "fills" of saline water I am now at my chosen size and I am awaiting implants in... READ MORE

I was in shock, fear and desperate until I found Dr. Jacobs and his team. I left his office with a smile on my face and ready to plan for surgery. I wish everyone facing breast surgery could have him and his team by their side. Dr. Jacobs explains every procedure clearly and he is precise and... READ MORE

My expanders were so big I slept sleeping up or 6 months. My skin was so tight it hurt. There is only 1 doctor that would take my insurance. I did not no this would be a 3 year procedure. I did however get some sort of inection a year after first set of implants, my skin was literally falling... READ MORE

Though I still have one more surgery to go to complete my reconstructed breasts (this would be the nipple reconstruction then aeriola tattooing) I am already so pleased and amazed at Dr. Rumalla's very thorough work. Due to an unrelated illness, I got a bit behind but was finally able to... READ MORE

Breast cancer is so last year! Seriously! The diagnosis of LCIS in my right breast and invasive ductal carcinoma in my left breast, hit me like a tsunami. I could not get the cancer out of my body soon enough! After 3 biopsies and a view of my films - which looked like a galaxy of white spots... READ MORE

Bilateral mastectomies for unilateral infiltrating carcinoma with immediate tissue expander placement. SEVERE pain and muscle spasms started immediately post op and were unrelieved with pain meds +/or muscle relaxants. Plastic surgeon was very aggressive in pushing forward towards swap out but I...

I was nervous and scared but Dr. Luong was very helpful and explained everything. She took her time with me. I am so glad I did it and finally feel complete and like a woman.. I am so grateful. I had not a single problem and love it and Dr Luong for giving me back what cancer took away.. Not... READ MORE

The motivation for my breast reconstruction was the fact that I had a benign lump removed that had LCIS tissue (Lobular Carcinoma In Situ) surrounding it. (Pre-Malignant cells). My mother passed away from this type of breast cancer at 65 and had BC for 23 years. She had it 3 times. My... READ MORE

Decided to go through with reconstruction following mastectomy. Due to some pre existing medical issues, I was not a candidate for TRAM flap, so went with the expander and silicone implant on one side with breast reduction and lift on my healthy breast. The transition has been very difficult... READ MORE

Wow where to start. My earliest memory of buying a bra was when I was in the 6th grade and my bra size at that time was a 32D. I was known as the girl with "the big knockers" and I hated it. Now at age 57 and size 36DDD I am finally going to have breasts more in porportion to my frame. I just... READ MORE

Ever since I began to go through puberty, I felt that my breasts weren't "right". Not only were they smaller than I wanted (most girls feel this way), but the left breast was droopy and lifeless, while the right was practically flat against my chest with no shape at all. It was the equivalent of... READ MORE

I recommend that you visit more than one plastic surgeon and find one you like. After seeing the 1st one I left his office crying. I knew I had to beat this for my children. If you are about to have this done ask questions from others who have had it done and find the right doctor MOST IMPORTANT... READ MORE
