I had a bi-lateral double mastectomy in January 2013 after a diagnosis of DCIS. Initial reconstruction was done along with the double mastectomy with the placement of tissue expanders. I had a latissimus doris flap surgery with implants in June 2013. Dr. Gallego was always very professional ... READ MORE

In March of 2013, I was diagnosed with cancer in my left breast. I had a lumpectomy on my right breast in 2007. My decision was to have a double mastectomy to hopefully do away with future problems and to achieve symmetry in my breasts. I recalled reading that actress, Christina Applegate, went... READ MORE

I feel my experience of a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction was made much better with the services from Dr. Wheeler and the staff. My journey began after having my yearly mammogram and subsequent appointments my primary doctors’ office scheduled. More images done- leading to a... READ MORE

5 years post DCIS surgery and radiation, I decided it was time to restore my breasts to a more normal appearance. I had implants from before that had gotten encapsulated, so I wanted implant exchange, and my right breast was considerably smaller due to surgery and radiation. I had an unfavorable... READ MORE

Hi, I have been doing research, reading experiences, forums and Q&A in this site. And I am thankful there is a site like this. I am turning 30 in a week, and I am scheduled for bilateral mastectomy and immediate reconstruction on April 28. I am very nervous, scared and my anxiety level is... READ MORE

Breast cancer is a diagnosis no one wants to hear, but that was my reality almost one year ago. Along with this news comes a team of doctors and what seems like endless doctor appointments and decisions to be made. I could not be more thankful that I had Dr. Camp as my plastic surgeon. He has... READ MORE

I am still going through the breast reconstruction, however, I have had several unexpected issues that occurred that was not in Dr. Grawe's control. I previously had 33 radiation treatments following breast cancer 3 years ago and most doctors will not try new techniques on patience following... READ MORE

I am a 38 year old woman and was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and had to have a mastectomy. I tried to reconstruct my breast through an implant but that was disastrous as I suffered multiple infections and had to remove it. I thought I would not be able to do anything about... READ MORE

I have nothing but sincere appreciation for Dr. Low and his incredible medical skills. Dr. Low is kind, compassionate, and an amazing doctor. From my first consult, he answered my three-pages of questions and always made me feel special. He never rushed our time together and always steered me in... READ MORE

Best doctor ever!! Caring, kind and true artist. Had a wonderful experience overall. His staff is also wonderful. I had breast reconstruction 6 weeks after my nipple sparing/ skin sparing double mastectomy. Reconstruction done with gel implants (sientra) and fat grafting. I look amazing. ... READ MORE

I met Dr. Bharti at the worse time in my life. I was scared and confused. At the age of 31 years old I was facing breast cancer. I was a single parent, sole provider of my two daughters, and very terrified of my future. I was preparing to have a double mastectomy and needed breast reconstruction... READ MORE

I have been working with Dr B for about a month and a half, he was highly recommended three times before I had met him. He was the only Dr I met with, but after hearing the recommendations from three different women (who are all in the field of breast reconstruction, oncology) and meeting him, I... READ MORE

In April 2012 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I had the option to do a double mastectomy with down time and then reconstruction. I interviewed more than 4 plastic surgeons in order to gain knowledge on the reconstruction part of the surgery. As all of this was very new to me, there were a... READ MORE

Dr. Song was recommended by my Breast Surgeon, Dr. Cursio, to perform the reconstruction of my breasts. I'm 55 and very physically active. I just wanted my same size (B) but was very concerned about keeping my strength and flexibility. My results are amazing! I feel completely normal but... READ MORE

Last spring I remember thinking I was healthier than I had been in probably 20 years. A couple months later I noticed that my energy level dropped and I had a small pain that happened just once and seemed to be coming from my right breast. I thought the pain was odd and surely I must have... READ MORE

I have a high risk of breast cancer and positive for the BRCA 1 mutation. I decided to have prophylactic double mastectomy with Direct-to-Implant silicone implants. Dr Rad was my plastic surgeon for this procedure. He went over the various risks and options with me. I always felt like I was in... READ MORE

My mammogram showed a suspicious spot and a biopsy confirmed it was cancer. Even though it was very small and very early, I knew I would have a bilateral mastectomy. My risk of recurrence was way too high for lumpectomy due to my family history. I immediately knew who to call and had my first... READ MORE

I remember when I went to my cancer doctor Dr.Marty Karin she told me what she planned I told her don't worry just take my "girls" and call it a day....I was done. She said I hear what your saying but I want you to see Dr. Vincent Lepore. What I did'nt know they are one of the best cancer... READ MORE

Finding out I had breast cancer at an early age came as a shock. After much thought I decided I was going to be as aggressive as possible to ensure the best outcome and have a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. Dr. Matthew Becker, my plastic surgeon, was recommended to me by... READ MORE

After reading all the reviews, I was so excited and thought I had found the best Dr for my mastectomy & reconstruction. I feel like I had a completely different Dr than the one described in these reviews?? My first disspointment came at the consult..he spent a very quick 10 min w/me and let his... READ MORE
