I had a bilateral mastectomy in August of 2013 and immediate reconstruction with tissue expanders, followed by exchange to implants in late December of 2013.

I had no motivation when it came to this surgery. I was diagnose with breast cancer and I had to get reconstruction of the breast and implants. I was so scared and didn't know what to expect.

At 17 years old I had a biopsy for what the dr thought was a cyst. It wasn't I had pre-cancerous cells in what he found and he recommended I get a BMX. At 17?!? I could not at the age of 17 comprehend his recommendation. So I started seeing a breast specialist every 3 months and getting breast... 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 had maintained a positive attitude throughout my battle with cancer, taking the advice of medical professionals in order to free myself of any cancer cells. I was not horrified... READ MORE

I needed breast reconstruction due to breast cancer. She made the most devastating news a woman can get so much easier, because of her knowledge and the way she explained the process to me I knew I would be in good hands and did not worry about the outcome which came out great. Saying thank you... READ MORE

Because this was breast cancer and not elective I was scared. From the front office to the nursing staff to Dr. Gross himself, I was put at ease from day one. If I had to have fake boobs then I at least wanted them to look good and they are beyond what I could have imagined. Never a wait time.... READ MORE

I am so blessed to have found such a great doctor. He did an incredible job. I am breast cancer survivor and recently the implant that was placed inside me back in 2009 just did not look right and I was not happy with it. Dr. Alex Kim removed the implant and did a tram flap reconstruction. I... READ MORE

My life has dramatically changed due to my epic fail breasts. I have a lot of life left and didn't want my boobs to be an obstacle to that happiness.

Dr Pacella is truly a RARE find these days- exceptionally skilled as a surgeon with a compassionate, caring, treat-you-like-family bedside manner. Getting a diagnosis of breast cancer is pretty overwhelming. So many tough decisions to make and tons of information to process, its total... READ MORE

Dr Hamawy gave me the vision that my stretched out skin, excess fat and scar tissue could all be addressed. I had reconstruction of my breasts and stomach and lipo of my flanks and butt- I am...

U decide. I am in so much pain all the time. I can't sleep on them, I can't lay on them. They hurt when I swim they hurt when I try to work out they hurt when I do housecleaning. They are constantly on my mind and I am constantly trying to hide them. It is so embarrassing. I look like a freak. I... READ MORE

I've been waiting for my boobs to "come in" since I was 11. Finally, now that I am 39, I can proudly say that they have arrived. The wait is over! All joking aside, living with tuberous, small breasts has been one of the most painful experiences of my life. Not only were my breasts mis-matched... READ MORE
