Worth It

After a diagnosis of breast cancer, I had bilateral mastectomies. Dr Wendel was recommended by a very trusted surgeon and he began the reconstruction process immediately following mastectomies. I had bilateral expanders placed followed by a series of injections to bring my breasts to a size... READ MORE

Dr. Lawrence reviewed the reconstruction options with me, made recommendations and answered questions, and helped me feel confident that the result would make me happy. She balanced the medical needs of my treatment with the cosmetic results I wanted. The result is great - no one knows, unless... READ MORE

In 1999, subsequent to being diagnosed with breast cancer, I knew a mastectomy was in my future and that I needed to find the best breast reconstruction surgeon in Houston. And I did! Dr. Schusterman was highly recommended to me by a plastic surgeon that I knew. High praise in itself. My... READ MORE

I do have a lot to say and have a pretty good story. I don't consider myself a writer, but I think I just might give it a try. I have enjoyed reading the posts on this site. I am 50 years old and have had breast cancer 3 times. Twice on RS, back when I was 27/32. On left side, just this... READ MORE

No woman wants to hear the fearful word "cancer". I was devastated, but very lucky to have a great team of doctors taking care of me. Trying to heal emotionally as well as physically, was a slow, exhausting process. Reconstructive surgery played a huge part in accepting my new body. Having... READ MORE

I was very excited and happy to come and do this procedure. I had breast cancer in 2009, I had a masectomy on my left breast and they attempted to reconstruct it twice. I had these 2 surgeries in Boston, Massachussets, and they did not do it right. The implant was very high and large, and I was... READ MORE

What finally made me make the appointment was the pain I have in my neck, shoulder and back. Plus, everyone telling me I have a big chest. I have considered this for 10 years. I would like to be a large B or small C cup. I'm nervous that my stomach will look bigger but I rather have less... READ MORE

After having a bilateral mastectomy, I had my reconstruction surgery scheduled for late December with another PS at Grant Hospital. The day before my surgery, I received a call that he had to cancel my appointment due to a trauma surgery. Then mysteriously never bothered to return ANY of my... READ MORE

The diagnosis of cancer is all about destruction - except for the reconstruction work of a talented plastic surgeon. Dr. Bohley's work began with me in October 2011, when I had a double mastectomy. He placed expander implants during my surgery, and he is still patiently and expertly working to... READ MORE

In February 2008 I was diagnosed with malignant breast cancer in my right breast. Within three weeks I had had a lumpectomy, a mastectomy and lymph node clear on the right side. Thereafter followed nearly a year of fear, chemo and radiation. I did not seriously consider having a... READ MORE

I had a mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer 9 years ago at the age of 45. In October 2011, after much consideration I decided to have a breast reconstruction using an abdominal flap. I preferred this procedure as it meant using my own body tissue instead of a foreign... READ MORE

I walked into Dr. Steven's office as a 25 year old looking for my 3rd breast aug. Yes 3rd at 25!!!!!! I had encapsulated, deformed, and embarrassing boobs from two previous surgeries. My fear, nerves, and discouraged self only hoped that he could bring some normalcy to my chest. After meeting... READ MORE

One year ago this month I found out news that would immediately change my life. Being diagnosed with breast cancer was both shocking and frightening. In the very beginning, I had no idea where to start or who to start with. Until I had a plan of action, I felt lost. My recovery after each... READ MORE

I am a 55+ yr old woman who has been breast-less for the last 5yrs. After having silicone implants for 26yrs I had them removed 5yrs ago when they began disintegrating in my body. In 1983 I was told they lasted forever so I accepted the changes over the years as they turned into hard balls on my... READ MORE

I was looking for an alternate reconstructive procedure after my mastectomy. Implants did not appeal to me as they look unnatural and feel hard. I also didn't want to deal with replacement every so often. We were from out of town so I appreciated that they accommodated my schedule. I didn't know... READ MORE

I've considered breast reconstruction for several years after breast cancer in my right breast. It's now smaller than the left....also, I want to perk them up a bit. I'm a big hiker and have lost the padding in the bottom of my left foot, so was hoping some fat grafting might help that problem... READ MORE

I began seeing Dr. Schusterman in April of 2011 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. My treatment plan consisted of a bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstruction and implants. Because my cancer had not spread to the lymph nodes I did not have to have radiation or chemo treatments and was able... READ MORE

My experience with the staff and with Dr. Rieger was by far the best experience that I have had to date. I have had a total of 3 breast augmentations that have not been successful. I had a closed capsulotomy performed on me and was not aware of the danger and impact that this would have on me. I... READ MORE

I had multiple procedures with Dr. Polo. I had reconstruction after a Double Mastectomy and I had the implants and Nipple Reconstruction. My comment is particularly on the Nipple Reconstruction. At that point I was going through almost a year's worth of surgeries. I was at a point where I didn't... READ MORE
