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 can’t thank Dr. Savalia and his lovely staff enough for everything they have done while I was going through one of the toughest time in my life.

It Is a week since the reconstruction of my breast and I couldn't be happier or more pleased with the results. I had a bad breast surgery 5 years ago and the results were drastic since day one.

I went to see Dr. Hermann after being diagnosed with both DCIS and invasive breast cancer in August 2014, just 3 weeks after my 43rd birthday. I had no experience with this disease and knew very little about what to expect, so I was fearful and very apprehensive about what to expect in the... READ MORE

I had a lumpectomy of my left breast and had reconstruction at the same time. I needed a breast implant in both breasts, not only to replace the missing tissue, but to have symmetry. My right breast developed capsular contracture less than two years after the initial procedure. Obviously, that... READ MORE

Dr. D'Amico came on recommendation from another surgeon, and I have been amazed at the quality, appreciation for lifestyle and judgement he used in my case. I was a complicated case with major burn scars needing both release of very tense skin but also reconstruction of my breasts. He gave me... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with two different cancers in my right breast Feb 5,2015. After second opinions with surgeons and 2 ps, I have decided to have both breasts removed with delayed reconstruction.

I first saw Dr. Welk when I was going through chemo and about to have my first mastectomy. It was a very scary, weird time, but Dr. Welk was so frank, kind, and transparent about my options that I felt very reassured. After my mastectomy and radiation, I returned to him with a very challenging... READ MORE

In 2011, I had a mass removed that was precancerous from my right breast. My mother and sister had each had breast cancer twice. I was tempted at that time to do bilateral mastectomy as a preventative measure. I went to see a local plastic surgeon who showed me after pictures that horrified me.... READ MORE

After testing positive for BRCA2, and knowing my family history of breast and ovarian cancer, I knew the only option that would work for me would be a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I was terrified until the day I met Dr. Kim. After a 30 minute appointment, I walked out knowing that Dr.... READ MORE

Dr. Bucky called me the day I came home from my bi-lateral mastectomy. When I complained that I hurt, he immediately told me to go see Dan Stokes for a lymphatic drainage massage because Dan would make me feel better. Dr. Bucky was right. The massage is extremely gentle and one wonders how it... READ MORE

I am considering breast reconstruction after a mastectomy on the right side. I have not yet made a final decision. I need more data on the pain level, time it takes and the results to be expected. What is the best and safest filler for reconstruction? I understand that there is no time limit... READ MORE
