I am a 53 year old woman who has breast cancer for the second time. I will be having a double mastectomy and a breast reconstruction in the same operation. My breasts will be reconstructed with my tummy fat and some muscle - which is the silver lining of my bad situation. I have not asked about... READ MORE

Two days prior to my 35th birthday, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I would come to find out that surgically the best treatment option for me would be a nipple sparing bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. I chose Dr. Meade to perform my procedure and I couldn't be happier with my... READ MORE

At the age of 25 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy with implants as my surgical treatment and was under the impression that implants or a flap was all there was. I had my first implant revision just a few months after my initial surgery to replace a... READ MORE

I was diagonosed with breast cancer in May 2013. I had 3 separate surgeries for my reconstruction: 1) bi-lateral mastectomy with immediate Latissimus Dorsi Flap reconstruction and expanders, 2) the exchange of the expanders with the permanent implants, and 3) the nipple-areolar reconstruction....

It was a very scary time for me. A lot of stress and uncertainty. My insurance at the time only covered two doctors, and Dr. Koger was not one of them. I had such a horrendous experience with the first round of Doctors my insurance was forcing me to see - they were not compassionate - they... READ MORE

Dealing with BC, chemo, radiation and a bilateral changes you mentally and physically. I chose to have reconstruction because I hoped to look like my old self in clothes. Although the reconstruction process was long, I now have 2 "breasts" and I feel very comfortable my new figure. Every... READ MORE

You get the call from the pathologist and you hear the words, "The test was positive for cancer in your right breast." You can't breathe. Everything stops. The words echo in your head, but you still can't seem to grasp them. It seems as though you're looking through a lens, as if watching a TV... READ MORE

Dr. Andres has been with me thru my whole breast cancer/reconstruction journey. He is such a kind, gentle soul and really has a way of putting you at ease. He is a tremendous plastic surgeon that does beautiful work. His staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Andres for... READ MORE

I had bilateral mastectomy with immediate recon (DIEP) on 28/5/14. I've been very lucky that my surgeon has never questioned my decision (prophalactic due to 3 generations of every female having breast cancer early tho negative for gene). OP was 12hrs and first op I've ever had. Had morphine... READ MORE

On July 7th 2014 I will be doing the DIEP FLAP procedure to have my silicone remove after getting CC. My biggest fair is I was still smoking until one week before the surgery and I have heard that smoking messes with the healing process. Can anyone one advise on that. After going through so...

Following a right mastectomy, chemo and radiation treatment for early breast cancer in 2010, I didn't feel like rushing back in to hospital for a reconstruction. I also wanted to research the procedure and talk to other women who'd done it. I decided to go ahead with a DIEP flap, in Dec 2012.... READ MORE

My surgery was a bilateral mastectomy and flap reconstruction (from my inner thighs). The reason for my surgery was preventative. My experience with Dr Ho and his staff was always positive. I would recommend Dr Ho as a surgeon without any hesitation and with great confidence in his abilities.... READ MORE

I was lucky enough to find out about autologous fat grafting as a means of primary breast reconstruction before having any other procedure done. In this procedure new breasts are built from fat liposuctioned from other areas of the body. It is a long process requiring multiple surgeries (I'm... READ MORE

I love Dr. Yugueros and her staff. This is in my opinion the best plastic surgeon in the state. Office is always clean , staff always friendly and willing to help. I've had a long journey; what was suppose to be a simply TRAM turned into a complicated situation and Dr. Yugueros was awesome... READ MORE

Dr Szczerba made me "me"again after a double mastectomy. He took a very difficult time in my life and made it more than what I could have dreamed for! I would totally recommend him. He cares about his patients and wants them to be totally satisfied. He's an artist! Dr Szczerba goes above and... READ MORE

Dr. Apostolides has brightened the hardest, darkest journey of my life. (Being told I have Breast Cancer and needed double masectomy.) His staff helped me navigate insurance. Dr. Apostolides prompt in responding to questions and concerns I have had this past year. He is confident but not... READ MORE

I had a bi-lateral mastectomy due to breast cancer and wanted breast reconstruction. Dr. Little started the first step of reconstruction during my mastectomy by putting expanders in me to stretch my skin for implants. I had the implants put in and later had skin graphed from my lower abdomen to... READ MORE
