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.

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 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

In April, I underwent a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy with mapping and removal of my sential lymphnodes. I chose to do a two step reconstruction. Tissue expanders and then a changeout to permanent silicone implants. I also plan on doing nipple reconstruction. So far, I am pleased with the... READ MORE

I came to see Dr. Kyllo within days after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had been told by word of mouth, he was a perfectionist in his field, and genuinely nice. Dr. Kyllo did reconstructive surgery for my bilateral mastectomy and my results look great. Although, I refuse to post such... READ MORE

I had a mastectomy in March 2013 and was able to go direct to implant (vs. expander process). From the moment I made a decision to use Dr. Linda Liu as my breast surgeon and Dr. Bryan Gawyley as my plastic surgeon, I had complete confidence in their skills as a team and was as comfortable and...

This procedure is not a walk through the park. It is a long surgery and it is a long recovery. With the right doctors and hospital, you will get through it and the benefits of this type of reconstruction is worth it. Natural feeling breast, not capsule contracture, no implants and who wouldn't... READ MORE

I am BRCA1+ and after a massive decision I decided to have both breasts removed and reconstructed to reduce my risk of breast cancer.

I had a dbl mast about 4 years ago and since have had 14 surgeries. Tram flat and another flap on my right breast. It was a mess!! After moving to AZ I saw Dr. Parsons and he and his staff were amazing. He explained every step to me, he was going "simple" and not trying to do a tone of fancy... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with the BRAC 2 gene in March 2013. Cancer is very high on my mom's side of the family, my mom and her 2 sister's had breast cancer and one had ovarian cancer all before the age of 60. So, I had a big decision to make. I spoke with my Primary care Dr and he suggested I meet... READ MORE

When I learned I had breast cancer and would have to have a mastectomy, I knew I would want to have breast reconstruction. Dr. Blakemore was very kind and answered all my questions about the different types of reconstruction and the pros and cons, and spent a lot of time reassuring me. I decided... READ MORE

I needed breast reconstruction after previous implants ruptured. My experience with this doctor was terrible. He put the wrong sized implants in to save cost. He had to do a second surgery at no cost to repair a breast lift that he insisted I needed. I did not feel I needed one and reluctantly... READ MORE

I chose a mastectomy/reconstruction after finding out I had the BRCA2 gene for breast cancer. Watching my mother die from breast cancer in her early 50's and my sister fight at 41 I was not going to take any chances. I will be honest. The process/procedure is hard. Recovery after a... READ MORE
