Dr. Mess messed me up BIG TIME. She performed the breast implant surgery as a part of my mastectomy surgery back in 2013. Right after surgery I started to have one infection after another. I eventually ended up having to remove the implants. Not to mention the implants were terrible looking, off... READ MORE

My motivation, to live my life to the fullest, feel good about myself post bilateral mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer (stage one), and to inspire other women to be assertive, face the challenge with courage & a positive attitude.

Breast reconstrcution after mastectomy. Very pleased with the result after DIEP. The nipple and areola were reconstructed by transplant from the existing nipple and areola. Genius doctor!

At 24 years old I had a cyst in my right breast. Of course we didn't know that because the tests and equipment was not what it is now. I was only given the option of surgery and I had to agree to a RADICAL MASTECTOMY. When I woke up I did discover that is still had my breast. And while the... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with breast cancer and opted for a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Stacey and his staff were awesome! They truly care about you as a patient and as a person.

I was overwhelmed with information after I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in 25 years and was told mastectomy was my best option on one side because of previous radiation and lumpectomy. I opted for bilateral mastectomy, but the previous radiation and surgery on one side... READ MORE

After discussing all of my risk factors, family history, mammograms, Excisional biopsy, and tamoxifen, I decided to just completely eliminate any risk and have PBMX and pedicled TRAM Flap reconstruction.

Dr Krau, is without question incredible. He reconstructed and repaired my breasts from a prior surgery with a different surgeon. Ladies, if you are considering breast surgery, this is by far the best doctor! Prior to surgery I thought I was ruined, he did what I never imagined possible. I can't... READ MORE

Reason was for breast cancer post mastectomy, implant to left breast and reduction to right breast. Surgery was highly successful and carried out with great professionalism and care by Richard Bloom and staff. Follow up was excellent and Richard Bloom's "bedside" manner was 10 out of 10. I...

My first surgery started out fine then I had problems and my expander had to be removed. The other surgeon did not give me options. I had to think about the surgery he wanted to perform and I chose to seek another opinion. I'm glad I did because I was happy with surgery results. This has been... READ MORE
