Worth It

I had a bi-lateral double mastectomy in January 2013 after a diagnosis of DCIS. Initial reconstruction was done along with the double mastectomy with the placement of tissue expanders. I had a latissimus doris flap surgery with implants in June 2013. Dr. Gallego was always very professional ... READ MORE

Dr. Lim is a good man but he failed to adequately warn me of the danger, or even the possibility, of a failure of a silicone breast implant on my highly radiated delicate skin after surviving inflammatory breast cancer. A Doctor should know this simple fact and compassionately, but firmly,... READ MORE

When I was 15 I began to notice that my breasts were not developing as fast as my friends. I was recovering from a full spinal fusion surgery so I figured this had delayed my development. Fast forward 10 years and my right breast grew into a small tuberous (A to A ½ ) cup while my left breast... READ MORE

In March of 2013, I was diagnosed with cancer in my left breast. I had a lumpectomy on my right breast in 2007. My decision was to have a double mastectomy to hopefully do away with future problems and to achieve symmetry in my breasts. I recalled reading that actress, Christina Applegate, went... READ MORE

I feel my experience of a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction was made much better with the services from Dr. Wheeler and the staff. My journey began after having my yearly mammogram and subsequent appointments my primary doctors’ office scheduled. More images done- leading to a... READ MORE

Exactly 30 days out of a double mastectomy to due to DCIS, which had spread quickly per the pathology, and after every medical professional said I only had atypical hyperplasia until after my lumpectomy and the cancer was found and even the surgeon was shocked, I cringe when I think what would...

5 years post DCIS surgery and radiation, I decided it was time to restore my breasts to a more normal appearance. I had implants from before that had gotten encapsulated, so I wanted implant exchange, and my right breast was considerably smaller due to surgery and radiation. I had an unfavorable... READ MORE

Hi, I have been doing research, reading experiences, forums and Q&A in this site. And I am thankful there is a site like this. I am turning 30 in a week, and I am scheduled for bilateral mastectomy and immediate reconstruction on April 28. I am very nervous, scared and my anxiety level is... READ MORE

Breast cancer is a diagnosis no one wants to hear, but that was my reality almost one year ago. Along with this news comes a team of doctors and what seems like endless doctor appointments and decisions to be made. I could not be more thankful that I had Dr. Camp as my plastic surgeon. He has... READ MORE

I am still going through the breast reconstruction, however, I have had several unexpected issues that occurred that was not in Dr. Grawe's control. I previously had 33 radiation treatments following breast cancer 3 years ago and most doctors will not try new techniques on patience following... READ MORE

I am a 38 year old woman and was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and had to have a mastectomy. I tried to reconstruct my breast through an implant but that was disastrous as I suffered multiple infections and had to remove it. I thought I would not be able to do anything about... READ MORE

I have nothing but sincere appreciation for Dr. Low and his incredible medical skills. Dr. Low is kind, compassionate, and an amazing doctor.

Best doctor ever!! Caring, kind and true artist. Had a wonderful experience overall. His staff is also wonderful.

I met Dr. Bharti at the worse time in my life. I was scared and confused. At the age of 31 years old I was facing breast cancer. I was a single parent, sole provider of my two daughters, and very terrified of my future. I was preparing to have a double mastectomy and needed breast reconstruction... READ MORE

I have been working with Dr B for about a month and a half, he was highly recommended three times before I had met him. He was the only Dr I met with, but after hearing the recommendations from three different women (who are all in the field of breast reconstruction, oncology) and meeting him, I... READ MORE

I will be having a reconstruction after mastectomy. Today I went to a different PS and she suggested that I do a two step reconstruction...tissue expanders, then silicone implants. I originally wanted saline but the doctor recommended the other. I didn't qualify for the DIEP or TRAM flap due to... READ MORE

In April 2012 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I had the option to do a double mastectomy with down time and then reconstruction. I interviewed more than 4 plastic surgeons in order to gain knowledge on the reconstruction part of the surgery. As all of this was very new to me, there were a... READ MORE

Dr. Song was recommended by my Breast Surgeon, Dr. Cursio, to perform the reconstruction of my breasts. I'm 55 and very physically active. I just wanted my same size (B) but was very concerned about keeping my strength and flexibility. My results are amazing! I feel completely normal but... READ MORE

Last spring I remember thinking I was healthier than I had been in probably 20 years. A couple months later I noticed that my energy level dropped and I had a small pain that happened just once and seemed to be coming from my right breast. I thought the pain was odd and surely I must have... READ MORE
