I was given a horrible diagnosis again...breast cancer for the second time. I had to get a double mastectomy and Dr Meade gave me the best news of all, I was a candidate for the DIEP Flap procedure. I was able to keep my breast skin/nipple and move tummy fat to create new breast. Breast... READ MORE

Hi, back in 2005 I had breast cancer and had a mastectomy . I waited one year to do reconstruction. I had a free tram flap.they take the fat from your stomach and tunnel blood vessels up under your chest wall and use your own fat as a breast. Then you got a kind of tummy tuck after the fat is...

Coming to terms with the news that I needed a mastectomy was extremely difficult but once meeting with Dr Moradi and discussing breast reconstruction options, my mind was set to ease with his caring and professional nature. I felt extremely supported by Dr Moradi and his team both before and... READ MORE

After undergoing Chemo before and after my bilateral mastectomy for stage 3 estrogen positive breast cancer in my right breast. I had to undergo more rounds of Chemo to be followed by radiation.

I have been wanting to have my breast redone for a very long time, I had a breast reduction about 14 years ago and they do not look the way I wanted them to. I decide to have children first before getting them revised. I have been searching... READ MORE

The motivation for my breast reconstruction was the fact that I had a benign lump removed that had LCIS tissue (Lobular Carcinoma In Situ) surrounding it. (Pre-Malignant cells). My mother passed away from this type of breast cancer at 65 and had BC for 23 years. She had it 3 times. My... READ MORE

After being diagnosed with breast cancer, the bottom dropped out on my world. I'm SO glad a friend referred me to Dr. Meade. His confidence in my breast reconstruction made me feel confident, and I'm thrilled with the results. I actually look better after cancer! I'm guessing not many people... READ MORE

I had to have a double mastectomy, and Dr. Capizzi and his staff made the reconstruction process do-able and as easy as it could be. Great technical abilities, wonderful compassion and a marvelously caring staff helped during a very difficult time in my life. Would recommend him for anything... READ MORE

Being diagnosed with breast cancer is scary. And being single made it even harder. Having a double mastectomy isn't exactly something you'd think is good for the dating life. But if there can be a blessing in the journey , it's having Dr Meade as my plastic surgeon! My breast reconstruction... READ MORE

I came to this doctor after being referred to him by my oncologist. I was told he was top notch. What I got was not top notch! I had a bilateral breast reconstruction, with tissue expanders, after a previous failure, Almost immediatly I had trouble breathing. When I told Dr. Cannova he told me... READ MORE

After having a lift and implants done in the past, I had 5 different consultations with surgeons. All said I needed the surgery done in two procedures, one to have the implants changed out, and one to have the breast lift redone, EXCEPT Dr. Leighton who assured me he could do it effectively in...

I was against plastic surgery, as I had only seen what I would call "bad reconstruction ". Going to see Dr. Bogue changed not only my opinion, but also my life. I am so happy I went to a consultation and ultimately had my bilateral reconstruction . I am cancer free and I also have breasts... READ MORE

I chose to have immediate bilateral breast reconstruction with tissue expanders following my double mastectomy in October of 2013. Following tissue expansion over the next several months, I was later fitted with Allergan silicone-filled ("gummy bear"), high-projection breast implants which are... READ MORE

After several consultations with plastic surgeons I knew that Dr. Wheeler was the only doctor I wanted to perform my breast reconstruction. My results are incredible and I just don't think I'll ever find the words to thank him and his wonderful staff enough. Dr. Wheeler truly is an 'artist of... READ MORE

Throughout my ordeal of having breast cancer and deciding the best procedure for me, Dr. Gabriel was very helpful and explained all my options. His professionalism and compassion made the process of having a bilateral mastectomy much more tolerable. He made me fill like I was part of the team... READ MORE

I was interested in DIEP Flap because I've had 2 kids, had gained a bit of weight, and saw it as a good opportunity to not only start over with a new body, but also have breasts created from my own tissue rather than implants. Keeping my own nipples was very important to me rather than having... READ MORE

Originally had breast implants performed by another surgeon. He totally destroyed my breast. One was larger than the other. Nipples were completely scarred w no areola and huge! Thankfully, I found Dr. Ali Sadeghi who performed reconstruction. The results were awesome! He did a remarkable job! READ MORE

Having a new breast cancer diagnosis is traumatic! However, I have been immensely impressed following a double mastectomy 4 weeks ago that included amazing breast reconstruction results provided by Dr. Robert Whitfield and his staff. I chose Dr. Whitfield because I could tell from our first... READ MORE

Dr. Steven Goldman rates the highest number for me. The consultation/ his explanation of how and why's and my imput of what I wanted were 100% addressed. I left the consult with 100% confidence in Dr. Goldman. When the dressings were first changed, I saw "basting stitches" to reattach... 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
