My double mastectomy, expander process and implant placement was a complete mess. I endured 4 surgeries, thousands of dollars out of pocket, a life threatening MRSA inflection and 10 months out of work only to end up with the inability to move either arm normally, constant pain, and a cosmetic...

I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer after finding a 1.2 cm lump in my right breast. I had a double mastectomy on December 11, 2014 and started chemotherapy on January 8, 2015. Happy Holidays to me - lol. My plan was to be "flat and fabulous" and forgo any type of breast... READ MORE

Diagnosed with breast cancer in May and knew immediately bilateral masectomy with immediate reconstruction was the best choice for me. Dr. Steele and his staff have been amazing throughout this crazy and confusing journey from the very beginning. His bedside manner instills confidence during a... READ MORE

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

Being diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 years old can be overwhelming. I was ex with a very aggressive high grade DCIS in my left breast on 08/28/14. I decided to undergoe double mastectomy with TE reconstruction on 10/21/14. I hope to be able to support and encourage anyone with the same fears... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with breast cancer and felt totally devastated! I was a very private and modest person and my "femininity" was very important to me. The thought of having a bil. mastectomy crushed me! Dr. Ambay was absolutely wonderful answering all of my and my husbands questions,... READ MORE

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

I had breast cancer in 2010. I had to get a breast augmentation so I chose this doctor for my surgery. I was not pleased with the outcome at all. I went back to fix the problems and it still does not look good. One is high and the other one is low. This prevents me from wearing certain clothes... READ MORE

I will admit, I was very hesitant to see a male doctor about my reconstruction. I almost didn't go for my consultation. But after meeting with Dr. Schwartz, I knew he was the one! He is very educated, compassionate, easy to talk to and explains things until you understand. I was scheduled for... READ MORE

63yr old. Had bi-lateral masectomy with tissue expanders and silicone implants in 2010. Recent studies showed right implant ruptured within capsule. These are before and after foto. I will update as soon as I can see the results. Hopefully I will start feeling better. I believe that the ... 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

Dr Janssen has been more amazing to me than any Dr I have been seeing on my Cancer journey and I say that with all honesty. He will tell you he has an ego right from the start and that is what you want but he is way more than that. The time him and his staff have taken with me is amazing and has... READ MORE

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

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

From the moment I walked into the office I knew this was a group of medical professionals who truly care about their patients. I am a registered nurse and have worked with numerous physicians and offices. This office is the best. They are always professional and make you feel like you matter.... 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. I highly recommend Dr. Rodger Shortt for his work and professionalism. He is a class act focused on... READ MORE
