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 am a woman whole loves beauty and when I had gone through the loss of my breasts and then complications on on side, I thought I would never be able to have that beautiful outer shell again. then I meet Dr. Mountcastle. READ MORE

I had 3 different breast implant surgerys due to difficults problems for 3yrs and never was satisfied with the results and things were not getting better so i decided to take a chance of finding another doctor for a second apenion...

I had had numerous lumpectomies in prior yrs and 13 in that year alone, finally electing to be proactive, I chose the procedure of a bi-lateral mastectomy to reduced my already high risk of cancer and the number of times I was having to go in for lumpectomies. My lumps were solid... 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

Two days prior to my 35th birthday, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I would come to find out that surgically the best treatment option for me would be a nipple sparing bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. I chose Dr. Meade to perform my procedure and I couldn't be happier with my... READ MORE

At the age of 25 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy with implants as my surgical treatment and was under the impression that implants or a flap was all there was. I had my first implant revision just a few months after my initial surgery to replace a... READ MORE

I was diagonosed with breast cancer in May 2013. I had 3 separate surgeries for my reconstruction: 1) bi-lateral mastectomy with immediate Latissimus Dorsi Flap reconstruction and expanders, 2) the exchange of the expanders with the permanent implants, and 3) the nipple-areolar reconstruction....

It was a very scary time for me. A lot of stress and uncertainty. My insurance at the time only covered two doctors, and Dr. Koger was not one of them. I had such a horrendous experience with the first round of Doctors my insurance was forcing me to see - they were not compassionate - they... READ MORE

Dealing with BC, chemo, radiation and a bilateral changes you mentally and physically. I chose to have reconstruction because I hoped to look like my old self in clothes. Although the reconstruction process was long, I now have 2 "breasts" and I feel very comfortable my new figure. Every... READ MORE

You get the call from the pathologist and you hear the words, "The test was positive for cancer in your right breast." You can't breathe. Everything stops. The words echo in your head, but you still can't seem to grasp them. It seems as though you're looking through a lens, as if watching a TV... READ MORE

Dr. Andres has been with me thru my whole breast cancer/reconstruction journey. He is such a kind, gentle soul and really has a way of putting you at ease. He is a tremendous plastic surgeon that does beautiful work. His staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Andres for... READ MORE

I have DCIS in two spots so a lumpectomy is out of the question,so here I go with the bilateral.. Liked my surgeon and then got the run around with Drs that actually take insurance!! Going for a second consult next week. I don't even have a date for the surgery yet. No chemo needed, no... READ MORE

I had bilateral mastectomy with immediate recon (DIEP) on 28/5/14. I've been very lucky that my surgeon has never questioned my decision (prophalactic due to 3 generations of every female having breast cancer early tho negative for gene). OP was 12hrs and first op I've ever had. Had morphine... READ MORE

On July 7th 2014 I will be doing the DIEP FLAP procedure to have my silicone remove after getting CC. My biggest fair is I was still smoking until one week before the surgery and I have heard that smoking messes with the healing process. Can anyone one advise on that. After going through so...

FABULOUS!! WONDERFUL!! KNOWLEDGABLE!! AMAZING!!! Dr Dean has been awesome from the day I met him at my consultation appointment!! He made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions without rushing me and explained throughly and made sure I understood everything before leaving. I had... READ MORE

Following a right mastectomy, chemo and radiation treatment for early breast cancer in 2010, I didn't feel like rushing back in to hospital for a reconstruction. I also wanted to research the procedure and talk to other women who'd done it. I decided to go ahead with a DIEP flap, in Dec 2012.... READ MORE
