I was diagnosed with cancer and only had two weeks to make a decision regarding reconstruction. I decided to go with lat dorsi reconstruction after a full mastectomy including removal of the nipple. I had no idea what to expect. I now have WAY better breasts than what I started with! All my... READ MORE

Hello, my name is Karina in 2011 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Due to my illness my left breast was removed. After all my treatments had finished I began to feel well again and decided it was time to talk to some plastic surgeons about reconstruction. I hated the fact that cancer had... READ MORE

Single reconstruction. Was in the hospital for 3-1/2 days. The pain medication Oxycodone really did not do anything for pain and made me feel tired and cranky, I stopped taking it and took Aleve instead. That worked great! The worst part was the drainage tube for the abdomen. Otherwise I feel... READ MORE

Hi my name is Vicki Kontalis. I was 38 when I was diagnosed with phyllodes breast cancer. On my first visit with Dr Damian Marucci, I felt extremely confortable and at ease. He took me through the entire procedure of intended operation with great care and understanding. Having had a full... READ MORE

I started the surgical process when I discovered I was BRCA2+. I chose Dr. Wendel to perform a one step direct to implant reconstruction following my total mastectomy. Going to Dr. Wendel was the best decision I have ever made! I am very happy with my results and would recommend Dr. Wendel to anyone READ MORE


Damian was the second surgeon I saw and showed a very compassionate nature as well as an informative and experienced approach in his consultation. This gave me the confidence to go through with the surgery. His website gave me visuals of his expertise and my goal was to look good in a tee shirt,... READ MORE

I met Dr.Mustoe several months after my fourth breast surgery. My first was a mastectomy, the last was reconstruction of that breast. I came to him with breasts that were 2 cup sizes different (I was a 32DD originally), and the small reconstructed breast very wrinkled. It appeared to be a ball... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Ferguson upon recommendation from the FORCE ( site. I have a breast cancer gene (BRCA 2) that indicates that I have an extemely high chance of getting breast and ovarian cancer (and other cancers). I decided to have a preventative mastectomy. I set up a... READ MORE

I am one of the unusual cases for a breast reconstruction, as I have not had cancer. I had a breast reduction which went horribly wrong in Sept last year. I also had a reduction 35 years ago, and that is where the problem stems from.... I am 58 and my breast were 36H. I had extreamly bad back... READ MORE

In the big scheme of things being alive and healthy is the most important thing, but the thought of losing my breasts was extremely scary. Thanks to Dr. Apostolides I ended up with Picture Perfect Poster Boobs for Breast Cancer!!! My new girls are better than the old ones!   With... READ MORE

A month and two weeks ago I had undergone my first surgery. My left breast was an A cup and my right breast was a C cup with premature sagging and a much bigger nipple as compared to my left breast. I am 19 years old and had first noticed this difference when I was 14. Since the age of 15, my... READ MORE

After a long journey with Cancer!! Doctor Khoobehi did a wonderful job with my reconstruction. I had implant reconstruction after chemo, radiation and unilateral mastectomy. In order to make the breast softer after radiation Dr Khoobehi did fat injections.   READ MORE

I was previously a patient of Dr. Salzberg when I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer. I went into surgery absolutely calm knowing that I was in the best hands possible. I had a double mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with follow up nipple reconstruction on one side... READ MORE

Dr Pousti recommended that I have a two-stage procedure for safety purposes and to achieve the desired look and size I wanted. I had a breast lift at Stage 1 and breast augmentation in Stage 2 three months later. My surgical procedures went smoothly and I am very pleased with the outcome. 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
