I am one of the unusual cases for a breast reconstruction, as I have not had cancer. I had a breast reduction which went horribly wrong in Sept last year. I also had a reduction 35 years ago, and that is where the problem stems from.... I am 58 and my breast were 36H. I had extreamly bad back... READ MORE

In the big scheme of things being alive and healthy is the most important thing, but the thought of losing my breasts was extremely scary. Thanks to Dr. Apostolides I ended up with Picture Perfect Poster Boobs for Breast Cancer!!! My new girls are better than the old... READ MORE

A month and two weeks ago I had undergone my first surgery. My left breast was an A cup and my right breast was a C cup with premature sagging and a much bigger nipple as compared to my left breast. I am 19 years old and had first noticed this difference when I was 14. Since the age of 15, my... READ MORE

I was previously a patient of Dr. Salzberg when I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer. I went into surgery absolutely calm knowing that I was in the best hands possible. I had a double mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with follow up nipple reconstruction on one side... READ MORE

Bi-lateral Mascetomy in December 2010, 475cc implants in April 2011. I am very unhappy with the size and look of them. I am told I will never be perfect but as you can see from the pictures they are not even close. I have been very insistant that I want to go larger and have them re-shaped... READ MORE

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

I had reduction and lump removed 1985, then a mastectomy 1990, then a tram flap 1998.. and now an implant August 29,2012.. it is still quite sore, tight.. and oh.. also have a nipple.. have...

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 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

I had a skin saving bilateral mastectomy with tissue expanders. I'm going today for my 5th expansion. My doctor mention that this was the last expansion. I'm not happy with my size. I've had a total of 240 CC so far. I will get 80 CC today? Is there any way I can continue expanding? Also my... READ MORE

AMAZING, Caring, Not just a doctor/surgeon.. I can't pick one word to describe him. When I found out I had breast cancer and my surgeon Dr. Storm-Dickerson (who he and she work MARVELOUSLY together) mentioned his name (cause I had no surgeon names just laying around in my head) I knew he was the...

I was diagnosed with beast cancer in November 2011, and I had a double mastectomy and tissue expander placement by two doctors within my HMO network. The work was sub standard, but going through the whole cancer process is pretty intimidating, so I was trying to go with the flow as much as... READ MORE

I've been to five different doctors and cannot decide who to chose. I have been to Dr. Kenneth Lee, Dr. Scott Rotatori, Dr. Steig, Dr. Kendall Peters, and Dr. Hartog all in or near Orlando Florida. I had breast cancer and had a left mastectomy and then I had reconstruction with a left implant... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Emily Williams for breast reconstruction after treatment for breast cancer and a double mastectomy. The day before surgery Dr. Williams informed me very firmly that she did not want me to have family in the waiting room during surgery. I told her I understood due to the fact that... READ MORE

I had a lumpectomy and radiation but the radiologist never told me I would get very bad contractions around my implant. It became hard as a rock and moved slighty up and towards my shoulder making movement unpleasant and the hardness was painful. I went to many, many top rated plastic... READ MORE

After my breast cancer diagnosis, I consulted with two plastic surgeons regarding reconstruction. The first does not perform microsurgery so could not offer me as many options as the second plastic surgeon I saw – Dr. Gabriel Kind, who offers the full array of microsurgery procedures as well...
