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

I had my surgery to be preventive...it's been less than that from day one. I just had surgery #9 to try to repair damages from 1st surgery. My expander on left side ruptured within hours of procedure which lead to going back to OR to remove defective expander. From that day I've had daily... READ MORE

On may 29,2012 I had a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. This included expander fill up's, followed by three surgery's. Expander's removed, implants placed, fat graphing and nipple reconstruction. Dr. Pyle and his staff kept me informed, and involved with every step of the... READ MORE

I had natural DD breasts and when I had to have a double mastectomy it was devastating. Luckily I chose to work with Dr. Rad who assured me that I could look and feel as good as ever after tissue expanders and implants. His skills as a surgeon are top notch and he has an artistic eye for details... READ MORE

Coming to terms with the news that I needed a mastectomy was extremely difficult but once meeting with Dr Moradi and discussing breast reconstruction options, my mind was set to ease with his caring and professional nature. I felt extremely supported by Dr Moradi and his team both before and... READ MORE

I couldn't have asked for a more friendly and comfortable practice to have gone to to have my procedure done. I had a tram flap done five months ago, (after waiting twelve years since my mastectomy). I was kind of nervous about the whole thing. Dr. Davoudi explained everything very well and made... READ MORE

We were living in China when I decided my husband could buy me some new breasts for my 39th birthday. For two years I loved them, I didn’t show them off with cleavage or tight tops but I stopped worrying about swimming, or someone turning up when I didn’t have my padded bra on, or that fact...

Hello, my name is Karina in 2011 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Due to my illness my left breast was removed. After all my treatments had finished I began to feel well again and decided it was time to talk to some plastic surgeons about reconstruction. I hated the fact that cancer had... READ MORE

Single reconstruction. Was in the hospital for 3-1/2 days. The pain medication Oxycodone really did not do anything for pain and made me feel tired and cranky, I stopped taking it and took Aleve instead. That worked great! The worst part was the drainage tube for the abdomen. Otherwise I feel... READ MORE

I had a breast lift 4 weeks ago with implant, my scar has holes and slimy liquid is coming out. what should I do to make it better? I am very happy with the results I am just a bit worried I will end up with horried scars READ MORE

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
