After cancer robs you of many things including your breast, reconstruction is a way of feeling whole again. I had two-stage reconstruction. At the time of my mastectomy I had tissue expanders inserted. After weekly "fills" of saline water I am now at my chosen size and I am awaiting implants in... READ MORE

I was in shock, fear and desperate until I found Dr. Jacobs and his team. I left his office with a smile on my face and ready to plan for surgery. I wish everyone facing breast surgery could have him and his team by their side. Dr. Jacobs explains every procedure clearly and he is precise and... READ MORE

My expanders were so big I slept sleeping up or 6 months. My skin was so tight it hurt. There is only 1 doctor that would take my insurance. I did not no this would be a 3 year procedure. I did however get some sort of inection a year after first set of implants, my skin was literally falling... 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... READ MORE

Breast cancer is so last year! Seriously! The diagnosis of LCIS in my right breast and invasive ductal carcinoma in my left breast, hit me like a tsunami. I could not get the cancer out of my body soon enough! After 3 biopsies and a view of my films - which looked like a galaxy of white spots... READ MORE

Bilateral mastectomies for unilateral infiltrating carcinoma with immediate tissue expander placement. SEVERE pain and muscle spasms started immediately post op and were unrelieved with pain meds +/or muscle relaxants. Plastic surgeon was very aggressive in pushing forward towards swap out but I...

I was nervous and scared but Dr. Luong was very helpful and explained everything. She took her time with me. I am so glad I did it and finally feel complete and like a woman.. I am so grateful. I had not a single problem and love it and Dr Luong for giving me back what cancer took away.. Not... 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

It's been 1 week 3 days since i done surgery, oufff and outchhh !!! all been and doing great at this moment but i was sufforing 8/10 about 4 days after the surgery... the surgery was preventive mastectomy on right breast since left was my cancer one, and they put expander in both under the...

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

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
