I am a 47 yr old wife and mother of 3 boys. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at my annual mammogram (it was found with ultrasound). Based on there being several small spots in the left and suspicious areas on the right it was agreed to do a double mastectomy. Through all the inner turmoil the... READ MORE

Dr. ANIGIAN came highly recommended!

I AM STILL a work in process because I just got a bilateral mastectomy. I... READ MORE

I turned 50 in May 2014. I had a routine breast ultrasound in June, which led to an MRI assisted biopsy and a diagnosis of STAGE 1 breast cancer in my right breast by July, 2014. I immediately began researching plastic and reconstructive surgeons. I was referred to Dr. Max Polo by several... READ MORE

On January 5, 2015 I had my reconstruction surgery in which I was so excited and looking forward to it. Not knowing that the outcome was going to be bad. I am now having to learn to deal with dents on my breasts, nipples not being centered & size is way off. Totally disappointed have not seen Dr... READ MORE

My motivation was to see if cold caps work and to be in control of something- keeping my hair during a time where I'm going to feel sick, months and months of chemo, surgery, losing a part of my body, having radiation, and possibly going in to early menopause. My motivation was not to have... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with cancer in March of 2013. I considered either having no reconstruction or reconstruction with implants. I chose two-stage reconstruction with implants. My timeline: May 2013 – Bilateral skin sparing mastectomy and tissue expander insertion. I work in an office and... READ MORE

This cancer nightmare started July 2014. Let me start by telling you I went to my doc asking for ultrasound of right breast because I had a lot of pain. I was told it can't be cancer because pain is not a sign (BULL). I preferred ultrasound as going thru peri menopause I was so tender I knew I... READ MORE

After cancer treatment and two mastectomies, Dr Rodger Shortt performed a bi-lateral reconstruction surgery on me. Then over 6 months he gradually expanded me until the final implant surgery.

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I was told it was one lobular carcinoma. After two lumpectomies, I learned it was in fact two masses and my wonderful breast surgeon, Dr. Danelle Chambers, recommended a mastectomy and Dr. Scott Rotatori as a plastic surgeon. Fortunately, my lymph... READ MORE

Dr.Peter Ashjian is an amazing surgeon located in Glendale, Encino and sometimes Valencia, California. In our first consultation, he put me at ease immediately and made me feel that I would be in good hands. All true! My DIEP surgery lasted 15 hours on Feb 4,2014 because he refused to give up...

Following a rather complex bi-lateral mastectomy with extensive scarring and not being given the option of reconstruction, I plunged into a deep depression. My feelings of self image, worth, femininity were at an all time low, I felt I looked like a monster, not a woman at all, I stopped going... READ MORE

It took me 5 years to decide what, if anything, I was going to have done after having a bilateral mastectomy in 2007.

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 am a BRCA 1+ patient who opted for a prophylactic double mastectomy with reconstruction last year. I chose to put my care in the hands of Dr. Meade and I am so glad I did.
