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

All I can say is wow. Speechless. First, I never knew that breasts could be made to look normal again after breast cancer and mastectomy. What people should really understand is every single medical procedure, big or small, surgical or not, is a process so be patient and healing depends on the... READ MORE

Pretty obvious - I had a double mastectomy I interviewed 3 plastic surgeons. Did not like #1, however I loved #2, Dr. Jeffrey Lang. However, even though breast reconstruction is 100% covered by insurance, his office said I had to pay up front and then get reimbursed! Since I didn't have... READ MORE

I had had numerous lumpectomies in prior yrs and 13 in that year alone, finally electing to be proactive, I chose the procedure of a bi-lateral mastectomy to reduced my already high risk of cancer and the number of times I was having to go in for lumpectomies. My lumps were solid... READ MORE

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

On my 59th birthday I was diagnosed with stage 3+ invasive lobular breast cancer which was followed by a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. Dr. Donath has walked every step with me - the initial surgery and placement of expanders, extensive post-op, chemo, radiation, final implant surgery... READ MORE

Having a very strong family history of breast cancer, although somewhat nervous, I knew I needed to look into having a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. My breast surgeon had given me several names of plastic surgeons to do the reconstruction. Upon my first visit to Dr. Ridha's office, I knew... READ MORE

Nov. 2014 I was diagnosed with aggressive stage III breast cancer: invasive ductal carcinoma. Quite a whirlwind of events went on after that. First chemo then I opted for a bilateral mastectomy.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 57, I chose to treat it with bilateral mastectomy.

I am so beyond pleased with my whole experience with Dr Ambay and his staff. I am a 25 yo brca neg and breast cancer free patient. I would not have trusted my health or body with anyone else. I knew once I met him that he was the perfect doctor for me. He talked to me honestly, money is not his... READ MORE

I was tired of having one breast so much smaller than the other a result of breast cancer in 1997. From my first visit with Dr. Stanwicks I knew I wanted him to do my surgery. He explained all of my options and I decided on the Deip Flap. The procedure was long but my stay in the hospital was... READ MORE
