What can I say About Dr. Francis Agullo? First, he is a consummate professional. Very thorough, answers all questions and allays any fears you may have.

Since the development of my breasts, I had been downright ashamed of the shape and size of them. I developed to be drastically asymmetrical, and it was what I considered to be my biggest physical flaw - one I could just not accept. It was constantly on my mind: How could I dress to best cover it... READ MORE

I consulted Dr. Park after undergoing a bilateral mastectomy for breast cancer at the age of 38.

I consulted Howard following my need for a mastectomy due to DCIS. I was especially concerned about my demise because I have a congenital absence of the underlying pectoral muscle, so I was potentially quite a mess. However, I quickly felt rapport with Howard because he greeted us with warm... READ MORE

I am going to have a DIEP flap construction with Mr. Tyler on the 30th April (this week in fact).

In March of 2013, I was diagnosed with cancer in my left breast. I had a lumpectomy on my right breast in 2007.

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
