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

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

I had breast reconstruction after having a masectomy in 2012. I consulted with Dr. Grosso twice before deciding on latissmus dorsi flap reconstruction. Dr. Grosso was very helpful reviewing my options with me, and discussing the best procedure for my lifestyle and body type. I felt... READ MORE

I had a wonderful and positive experience during my reconstructive surgery (after double mastectomy) and liposuction of the stomach and flanks. I look and feel amazing! Dr. Kayastha talked me through the whole process and what to expect. I went through several weeks of having the expanders in... READ MORE

I was living overseas and was referred to Dr. Cassel for reconstruction surgery by my oncologist after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Obviously, I was emotionally distraught at realizing I had to undergo a double mastectomy, but Dr. Cassel saw me immediately and spent at least 2 hours... READ MORE

After having a modified radical mastectomy, chemo and radiation at age 44 for breast cancer, I was told by a couple of doctors that reconstruction would be difficult due to the damage of the radiation and that I may be able to achieve 'symmetry' but probably not good results otherwise. My... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 37 years old.... I was so eager to take the next step to remove the cancer, I did not have time to properly research a plastic surgeon. I had a single mastectomy with immediate reconstruction in Summer of 2012 by a different Doctor. The results were not as... READ MORE

Very pleased with the DIEP procedure of breast reconstruction after breast cancer mastectomies. There are so many offerings out there on how to tackle breast reconstruction. This one made the most sense...take just the fat off the belly and make breasts. Recovery was fast for me; and didn't... READ MORE

After my double mastectomy, Dr. Samra performed breast reconstruction on me with implants and fat grafting. He did a fantastic job. I am thrilled with the results. My reconstructed breasts look and feel more natural than I ever thought possible. Dr Samra is a wonderful doctor. He takes a... READ MORE

I was born with Poland syndrome where one of my breast never developed and the other had grown but also hadn't developed quite right. I'm 17 years old and this surgery was the best thing I have ever done. I feel so much more confident and happy! Dr. Karen Vaniver is literarily the greatest lady... READ MORE

I had a bi-lateral mastectomy. Each implant ruptured 9 months apart after only being in for approx. 1 year. My original doctor made me wait THREE weeks before he would see me. When I got to the appointment he was in surgery, and I had to see the PA. Why did I have to wait 3 weeks for that? ... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2009. Following my initial tumour and lymph node removal, I chose chemotherapy then, some months later, a double mastectomy with reconstruction as the best option to give me a good prognosis. But with that decision came a storm of unexpected... READ MORE

Second opinion for double bi-lateral and implant after radiation. I had breast cancer and had a bi-lateral. Expanders and silicon implants.

When I found out about a 3rd option for breast reconstruction, BRAVA + AFT I was elated as I had read so many horror stories about breast reconstruction post radiation therapy such as implant and flap failure, numerous revision surgeries, multiple scars, and constant pain, none of which were...
