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. They were lumpy and one side had ripples and sagged lower than radiated breast. Had it corrected once but it sagged again. Had second opinion and had... READ MORE

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...

Motive strong family history and because of meds I am on. Pros not having to worry about cancer in the other breast. Cons feeling tight around my chest and back, not knowing if this is normal feeling. I don't feel like my PS is answering my questions, he makes me feel like I am asking... READ MORE

I had amazing results after bilateral mastectomy and radiation. I was able to have a nipple sparing procedure, and now have silicone implants. My radiation delayed the final exchange to implants by about 4 months, but it allowed the skin to heal fully from the radiation, and now my skin and new... READ MORE

I came to Dr. Harrington for breast reconstruction after breast cancer. I had been through reconstruction with another surgeon and had one square breast and one rectangular breast. I was experiencing loss of mobility in one arm - or, to be more precise, when I moved my one arm to reach behind... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 38, and the decision to go for a bilateral mastectomy was very hard. Even harder was to decide about the reconstruction. At some point I seriously concidered not doing it at all. But once I talked to Dr. Min, the high drama (so young for cancer! with a small... READ MORE

I am so thankful for and highly recommend Dr. Schusterman! I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 and had a mastectomy of my left breast. I wore a prosthetic breast form for 3 years until I heard about Dr. Schusterman from a co-worker who had done extensive research before getting a breast... READ MORE

Dr Rafizadeh came highly recommended after I received my breast cancer diagnosis. You know you are in good hands when other doctors send their wives there for reconstruction. Dr Rafizadeh was so patient, kind and understanding thru the entire process. I always felt that he had my best... READ MORE

I opted to have a preventative double mastectomy with reconstruction surgery after finding out I carry the faulty brca1 gene. It has been a long emotional road to which I am nowhere near the end but I dont regret it one bit. I chose reconstruction with implants but I have just had one removed... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the 2nd time by age 45. The first time I received a lumpectomy and radiation. The 2nd time was a bit more difficult. I had to have a double mastectomy with a dorsi flap, breast reconstruction, and chemotherapy. The mastectomy surgery went well and I... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with LCIS (lobular carcinoma in situ) and discovered I had a personal lifetime breast cancer risk of 40 percent. I opted to have prophylactic mastectomies with tissue expander-to-implant reconstruction, and was treated by a breast surgeon and plastic surgeon. My personal... READ MORE

Dr. Kirk is a knowledgeable and gracious woman/doctor/surgeon with a fab staff. Her offices are beautiful and I felt confident in her abilities immediately. Reconstruction for me was a bit difficult because of previous radiation "therapy" damage, however I look as good as I did 30 years ago. ... READ MORE

I had been tested positive for heredity cancer and being 45yrs. Old decided to do something about it now instead of waiting until I got the cancer... So I had a bilateral mastectomy with a reconstruction... I work in the medical field in surgery and I did my homework and Dr. Waklin was by far... READ MORE

I don't know where to begin. My initial procedure Double Mastectomy. The doctor at Alexian Brothers took the breast off and stuffed me with implants that were hard and and not even. I was so unhappy, family members, friends would encourage me that "I looked great" I knew something wasn't... READ MORE

This is a warning for those who are facing major reconstruction, do reasearch. My surgeron Dr. Tamburrino was recommended by my breast surgeon as the "best" and I took her word. This was my 4th surgery after cancer was found a second time, so total masectomy. I still have nightmares waking up... READ MORE
