Worth It

This procedure is not a walk through the park. It is a long surgery and it is a long recovery. With the right doctors and hospital, you will get through it and the benefits of this type of reconstruction is worth it. Natural feeling breast, not capsule contracture, no implants and who wouldn't... READ MORE

(I will post photos when I get them all together in sequence) First off, I had no family history of Breast Cancer, but was diagnosed with it in one breast on 3/6/2012. I had a nipple sparing mastectomy on one breast on 4/12/2012. I had immediate reconstruction on my other breast with a tissue... READ MORE

I am BRCA1+ and after a massive decision I decided to have both breasts removed and reconstructed to reduce my risk of breast cancer.

I had a dbl mast about 4 years ago and since have had 14 surgeries. Tram flat and another flap on my right breast. It was a mess!! After moving to AZ I saw Dr. Parsons and he and his staff were amazing. He explained every step to me, he was going "simple" and not trying to do a tone of fancy... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with the BRAC 2 gene in March 2013. Cancer is very high on my mom's side of the family, my mom and her 2 sister's had breast cancer and one had ovarian cancer all before the age of 60. So, I had a big decision to make. I spoke with my Primary care Dr and he suggested I meet... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with beast cancer in March 2012. My diagnosis led to a tratment plan of needing a mastectomy. My journey to find the best plastic surgeon for reconstruction of my breast led me to Dr. Rad. He performed a DIEP flap breast reconstruction follwing my mastectomy. I chose this... READ MORE

When I learned I had breast cancer and would have to have a mastectomy, I knew I would want to have breast reconstruction. Dr. Blakemore was very kind and answered all my questions about the different types of reconstruction and the pros and cons, and spent a lot of time reassuring me. I decided... READ MORE

I needed breast reconstruction after previous implants ruptured. My experience with this doctor was terrible. He put the wrong sized implants in to save cost. He had to do a second surgery at no cost to repair a breast lift that he insisted I needed. I did not feel I needed one and reluctantly... READ MORE

I chose a mastectomy/reconstruction after finding out I had the BRCA2 gene for breast cancer. Watching my mother die from breast cancer in her early 50's and my sister fight at 41 I was not going to take any chances. I will be honest. The process/procedure is hard. Recovery after a... READ MORE

Foobs. Fake boobs. Rising out of nothingness…Suddenly. In Biblical fashion. The surgeons very kindly took me seriously when I said the prospect of traditional dual mastectomy horrified me. They inflated temporary tissue expanders to about half capacity before I left the operating room... READ MORE

I was motivated to get the breast reconstruction surgery after I underwent a bilateral mastectomy. The procedure was painful and the recovery was long but I have no regrets because I no longer have to worry about getting breast cancer. The worst part was having the drains and having to take pain... READ MORE

Dr. Bajnrauh showed patience and perseverance in helping me find my real preferences during my stressful breast cancer diagnosis. I was happy with my body before and appreciate him helping me to keep it that way. His staff deserves kudos for their effective support before and after surgery too.... READ MORE

My initial breast reconstruction after a mastectomy was 15 years ago was now giving me great pain and I had required another reconstruction for some time. My initial reconstruction had given me a full silicone implant in one breast and a saline one in the still OK breast. After this amount of... READ MORE

Botched breast reconstruction. ( I later found out that this was not an appropriate surgery for my situation.) After the initial complaint that "something had gone wrong" she stopped returning my phone calls. I did not have a good experience at all with this Dr. My advice would be to check out... READ MORE

I am a BRACA2 gene carrier. I had the gene test done after my second sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. Though she caught it "early" we learned there is really no such thing and the cancer had reached her nodes and after two lumpectomies had to have a mastectomy followed by chemo and... READ MORE

When I found out that I was BRCA2+, I made a plan with my OB/Gyn. It included having another child then going forward with a bilateral mastectomy and oopherectomy. My doctor highly recommended Dr. Schusterman and that meant a lot to me because I respect his opinion. After having my second child,... READ MORE

After having Breast Implants in 2005 I found I was unhappy with the size of my full DD breasts. I decided to explore my options. I had 3 consults before I decided to proceed with the surgery that Dr. Kortesis recommended. The entire process during the consult was professional and informative. I... READ MORE
