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

I have a high risk of breast cancer and positive for the BRCA 1 mutation. I decided to have prophylactic double mastectomy with Direct-to-Implant silicone implants. Dr Rad was my plastic surgeon for this procedure. He went over the various risks and options with me. I always felt like I was in... READ MORE

My mammogram showed a suspicious spot and a biopsy confirmed it was cancer. Even though it was very small and very early, I knew I would have a bilateral mastectomy. My risk of recurrence was way too high for lumpectomy due to my family history. I immediately knew who to call and had my first... READ MORE

Finding out I had breast cancer at an early age came as a shock. After much thought I decided I was going to be as aggressive as possible to ensure the best outcome and have a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. Dr. Matthew Becker, my plastic surgeon, was recommended to me by... READ MORE

After reading all the reviews, I was so excited and thought I had found the best Dr for my mastectomy & reconstruction. I feel like I had a completely different Dr than the one described in these reviews?? My first disspointment came at the consult..he spent a very quick 10 min w/me and let his... READ MORE

I had a mastectomy on my right breast 4/2012. I had immediate breast reconstruction afterwards. I had my implant placement and implant one healthy breast done 3/2013. I just had a breast lift on 9/2013. Shortly before my lift, I told and showed my Plastic Surgeon how my left breast implant... READ MORE

I had bilateral nipple and skin-sparing mastectomy (IDC of right breast and prophylactic mastectomy of left breast; strong family history, multiple biopsies and age at diagnosis- 40) in October 2013 with immediate placement of expanders. Right nipple did not completely make it. I am... READ MORE

My name is Michelle and I was diagnosed with a large Lipoma on my left breast by arecent visit to an Oncologist. The Oncologist felt it was best to see a Plastic Surgeon for removal of the Lipoma because there was a great possibility of my chest going concave. That is when I introduced myself... READ MORE

When I found out in 5/2013 that I was positive for both the BRC-1 and BRC-2 mutation I had to make an agonizing decision to have a prophylactic mastectomy as this mutation puts me at a very high risk for breast cancer. My research brought me to Dr. Salzberg as "THE MAN" to go to for a one step,... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer a year ago. Chemotherapy and radiation was the standard treatment for my case but I decided to have a double mastectomy in lieu of radiation. I met Dr. Rafizadeh after I had completed chemotherapy to perform the breast reconstruction. The pathology... READ MORE

I highly recommend Dr. Schusterman. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and had a lumpectomy followed by chemo and radiation. I thought all of this was behind me but to my horror I was diagnosed again in the summer of 2013 with breast cancer (a different type of cancer)in the same... READ MORE

I had breast reconstruction after having a masectomy in 2012. I consulted with Dr. Grosso twice before deciding on latissmus dorsi flap reconstruction. Dr. Grosso was very helpful reviewing my options with me, and discussing the best procedure for my lifestyle and body type. I felt... READ MORE

I had a wonderful and positive experience during my reconstructive surgery (after double mastectomy) and liposuction of the stomach and flanks. I look and feel amazing! Dr. Kayastha talked me through the whole process and what to expect. I went through several weeks of having the expanders in... READ MORE

I was living overseas and was referred to Dr. Cassel for reconstruction surgery by my oncologist after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Obviously, I was emotionally distraught at realizing I had to undergo a double mastectomy, but Dr. Cassel saw me immediately and spent at least 2 hours... READ MORE

After having a modified radical mastectomy, chemo and radiation at age 44 for breast cancer, I was told by a couple of doctors that reconstruction would be difficult due to the damage of the radiation and that I may be able to achieve 'symmetry' but probably not good results otherwise. My... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 37 years old.... I was so eager to take the next step to remove the cancer, I did not have time to properly research a plastic surgeon. I had a single mastectomy with immediate reconstruction in Summer of 2012 by a different Doctor. The results were not as... READ MORE

Very pleased with the DIEP procedure of breast reconstruction after breast cancer mastectomies. There are so many offerings out there on how to tackle breast reconstruction. This one made the most sense...take just the fat off the belly and make breasts. Recovery was fast for me; and didn't... READ MORE
