I started the surgical process when I discovered I was BRCA2+. I chose Dr. Wendel to perform a one step direct to implant reconstruction following my total mastectomy. Going to Dr. Wendel was the best decision I have ever made! I am very happy with my results and would recommend Dr. Wendel to anyone READ MORE

Damian was the second surgeon I saw and showed a very compassionate nature as well as an informative and experienced approach in his consultation. This gave me the confidence to go through with the surgery. His website gave me visuals of his expertise and my goal was to look good in a tee shirt,... READ MORE

I met Dr.Mustoe several months after my fourth breast surgery. My first was a mastectomy, the last was reconstruction of that breast. I came to him with breasts that were 2 cup sizes different (I was a 32DD originally), and the small reconstructed breast very wrinkled. It appeared to be a ball... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Ferguson upon recommendation from the FORCE (facingourrisk.org) site. I have a breast cancer gene (BRCA 2) that indicates that I have an extemely high chance of getting breast and ovarian cancer (and other cancers). I decided to have a preventative mastectomy. I set up a... READ MORE

I am one of the unusual cases for a breast reconstruction, as I have not had cancer. I had a breast reduction which went horribly wrong in Sept last year. I also had a reduction 35 years ago, and that is where the problem stems from.... I am 58 and my breast were 36H. I had extreamly bad back... READ MORE

In the big scheme of things being alive and healthy is the most important thing, but the thought of losing my breasts was extremely scary. Thanks to Dr. Apostolides I ended up with Picture Perfect Poster Boobs for Breast Cancer!!! My new girls are better than the old... READ MORE

A month and two weeks ago I had undergone my first surgery. My left breast was an A cup and my right breast was a C cup with premature sagging and a much bigger nipple as compared to my left breast. I am 19 years old and had first noticed this difference when I was 14. Since the age of 15, my... READ MORE

I was previously a patient of Dr. Salzberg when I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer. I went into surgery absolutely calm knowing that I was in the best hands possible. I had a double mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with follow up nipple reconstruction on one side... 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 finish...

Bi-lateral Mascetomy in December 2010, 475cc implants in April 2011. I am very unhappy with the size and look of them. I am told I will never be perfect but as you can see from the pictures they are not even close. I have been very insistant that I want to go larger and have them re-shaped... READ MORE

Unfortunately, almost 3 months into reconstruction it failed. I decided to go with an expander with my radiated skin. My PS was very honest from the beginning that I was very high risk. I was so confident that it would succeed. It didn't! Now I need to make a choice if I will do a flap. I hate... READ MORE

My reconstructed implant is still swollen. I believe it will shrink a little. I had a mastectomy with tram flap surgery with skin sparing 8 years ago. My reconstructed breast was very small and I decided to have a silicon implant. This is the result after 12 days of surgery.Hi... READ MORE

Pretty obvious - I had a double mastectomyI interviewed 3 plastic surgeons. Did not like #1, however I loved #2, Dr. Jeffrey Lang. However, even though breast reconstruction is 100% covered by insurance, his office said I had to pay up front and then get reimbursed! Since I didn't have $6000+... READ MORE

I had a hysterectomy and double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction with implants. My first surgery went much better than I thought. I did however have to get a revision surgery for the implants, which I was told about upfront by my plastic surgeon. He told me to expect several. Next... READ MORE
