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

I had a mastectomy on my right breast 4/2012. I had immediate breast reconstruction afterwards. I had my implant placement and implant one healthy breast done 3/2013. I just had a breast lift on 9/2013. Shortly before my lift, I told and showed my Plastic Surgeon how my left breast implant... READ MORE

I had bilateral nipple and skin-sparing mastectomy (IDC of right breast and prophylactic mastectomy of left breast; strong family history, multiple biopsies and age at diagnosis- 40) in October 2013 with immediate placement of expanders. Right nipple did not completely make it. I am... READ MORE


My name is Michelle and I was diagnosed with a large Lipoma on my left breast by arecent visit to an Oncologist. The Oncologist felt it was best to see a Plastic Surgeon for removal of the Lipoma because there was a great possibility of my chest going concave. That is when I introduced myself... READ MORE

When I found out in 5/2013 that I was positive for both the BRC-1 and BRC-2 mutation I had to make an agonizing decision to have a prophylactic mastectomy as this mutation puts me at a very high risk for breast cancer. My research brought me to Dr. Salzberg as "THE MAN" to go to for a one step,... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer a year ago. Chemotherapy and radiation was the standard treatment for my case but I decided to have a double mastectomy in lieu of radiation. I met Dr. Rafizadeh after I had completed chemotherapy to perform the breast reconstruction. The pathology... READ MORE

I highly recommend Dr. Schusterman. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and had a lumpectomy followed by chemo and radiation. I thought all of this was behind me but to my horror I was diagnosed again in the summer of 2013 with breast cancer (a different type of cancer)in the same... READ MORE
