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

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

After having breast cancer in 08 and a biliateral mastecomy. 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

I have had bad mammograms for 4 years, having to have mammograms, sonograms, and biopsies every 6 months. This last round of mammograms showed some major changes, as did the MRI with contrast. This put me at a very high risk for breast cancer, and I am so glad I opted for the double mastectomy... READ MORE

Hi ladies, Whilst I have no doubt I have made the right decision I still am finding it hard to come to terms with how small I am! My surgeon and I agreed to go with a D to a DD cup size as I have a small waist and medium frame. However after getting the nipple stitches taken out today and all... READ MORE

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy. I was to have the surgery after I finished all of my chemo treatments. So everything leading up to the mastectomy was sort of a blur but I do remember looking forward to my surgery because it was the final phase of my... READ MORE

After right breast mastectomy surgery, Dr Perkins inserted a tissue expander and later I had several saline "top ups" to expand the tissue. Dr. Perkins was recommended to me by my Breast surgeon Dr Peter Schwartz. Dr Perkins consultation was very thorough as is his website with lots of before... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with extensive DCIS in March of 2014. After a failed lumpectomy, I decided to make a decision that felt right for me, as I wanted cancer out of my life ASAP. I had a skin-sparing bilateral mastectomy in June 2014 followed by immediate reconstruction with alloderm by a very... 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

Bilateral breast reconstruction with "gummy bear" inserts...absolutely flawless result..even at this early stage: (takes several mos for tissue to settle completely in what was a totally vacant chest cavity post mastectomy).. This procedure took his incomparable skill, his exquisite artistry and... READ MORE

Dr Pacella is truly a RARE find these days- exceptionally skilled as a surgeon with a compassionate, caring, treat-you-like-family bedside manner. Getting a diagnosis of breast cancer is pretty overwhelming. So many tough decisions to make and tons of information to process, its total... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Anton after having my breasts done by another doctor, along with a "superficial" tummy tuck where they cut you below the breasts and pull your stomach skin up to achieve a tighter tummy. I looked like an alien and really just lost hope that I would ever look normal. I basically... READ MORE

My mastectomy in 2012 left me devastated, both physically and emotionally. I always intended on pursuing reconstruction as I knew using a prosthesis was not a long-term solution for me, but had to wait until after treatment including chemo, radiation and Herceptin before going down the...

I had 2 tumors removed from 1 breast and had a big dent - small breast - not much tissue left Dr. Fouda Neel injected some fat in one breast and did breast lift on the second one about 70% injected fat was absorbed, because of the radiation I had after the cancer surgery Breasts look better...
