I've been to five different doctors and cannot decide who to chose. I have been to Dr. Kenneth Lee, Dr. Scott Rotatori, Dr. Steig, Dr. Kendall Peters, and Dr. Hartog all in or near Orlando Florida. I had breast cancer and had a left mastectomy and then I had reconstruction with a left implant... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Emily Williams for breast reconstruction after treatment for breast cancer and a double mastectomy. The day before surgery Dr. Williams informed me very firmly that she did not want me to have family in the waiting room during surgery. I told her I understood due to the fact that... READ MORE

I had a lumpectomy and radiation but the radiologist never told me I would get very bad contractions around my implant. It became hard as a rock and moved slighty up and towards my shoulder making movement unpleasant and the hardness was painful. I went to many, many top rated plastic... READ MORE

After my breast cancer diagnosis, I consulted with two plastic surgeons regarding reconstruction. The first does not perform microsurgery so could not offer me as many options as the second plastic surgeon I saw – Dr. Gabriel Kind, who offers the full array of microsurgery procedures as well...

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August, 2013. Shortly after being diagnosed, my world turned into a series of doctors appointments. I had a bilateral mastectomy in September, 2013, followed by 6 rounds of chemotherapy, and 33 treatments of radiation. After this, the biggest decision I had... READ MORE

I chose Dr Spiegel over other doctors based on her website - specifically the before/after pictures. They were far superior than others - so I decided to meet with her. The pre-visits all went well, with her and Carlos... After the first surgery, my new breast were kind of like pancakes -... READ MORE

Revered to by my plastic serge on to revise left side with trans flap. Trans flap surgery went well. Spent the year expanding the left side to place permanent implant. Plan was to exchange the expander on left with fourth generation silicone. Going 25% larger. Replace the right implant with... READ MORE

Hearing the words “You have breast cancer” is overwhelming, frightening, and a life-changer no matter what stage your cancer is. You are faced with a myriad of decisions about treatment, surgery, scheduling, and how to communicate to family and friends, to name but a few. Your mind is... READ MORE

Hi! I had a bilateral mastectomy in Jan.2014 with tissue expanders put in at the time of surgery. I was partially expanded prior to radiation in the month of April 2014. I have had one expansion post radiation and am currently at 500cc's. I am 5'4'', 120 lbs. with a fitness body. I was... READ MORE

I am proudly a 14 year breast cancer survivor that had a double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. During the first three years I had two revisions due to asymmetry issues. Recently it became necessary for me to have another revision. Through colleagues and other survivors I was... READ MORE

I am a 53 year old woman who has breast cancer for the second time. I will be having a double mastectomy and a breast reconstruction in the same operation. My breasts will be reconstructed with my tummy fat and some muscle - which is the silver lining of my bad situation. I have not asked about... READ MORE

Two days prior to my 35th birthday, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I would come to find out that surgically the best treatment option for me would be a nipple sparing bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. I chose Dr. Meade to perform my procedure and I couldn't be happier with my... READ MORE

At the age of 25 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy with implants as my surgical treatment and was under the impression that implants or a flap was all there was. I had my first implant revision just a few months after my initial surgery to replace a... READ MORE

I was diagonosed with breast cancer in May 2013. I had 3 separate surgeries for my reconstruction: 1) bi-lateral mastectomy with immediate Latissimus Dorsi Flap reconstruction and expanders, 2) the exchange of the expanders with the permanent implants, and 3) the nipple-areolar reconstruction....

It was a very scary time for me. A lot of stress and uncertainty. My insurance at the time only covered two doctors, and Dr. Koger was not one of them. I had such a horrendous experience with the first round of Doctors my insurance was forcing me to see - they were not compassionate - they... READ MORE

Dealing with BC, chemo, radiation and a bilateral changes you mentally and physically. I chose to have reconstruction because I hoped to look like my old self in clothes. Although the reconstruction process was long, I now have 2 "breasts" and I feel very comfortable my new figure. Every... READ MORE

You get the call from the pathologist and you hear the words, "The test was positive for cancer in your right breast." You can't breathe. Everything stops. The words echo in your head, but you still can't seem to grasp them. It seems as though you're looking through a lens, as if watching a TV... READ MORE

Dr. Andres has been with me thru my whole breast cancer/reconstruction journey. He is such a kind, gentle soul and really has a way of putting you at ease. He is a tremendous plastic surgeon that does beautiful work. His staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Andres for... READ MORE

I had bilateral mastectomy with immediate recon (DIEP) on 28/5/14. I've been very lucky that my surgeon has never questioned my decision (prophalactic due to 3 generations of every female having breast cancer early tho negative for gene). OP was 12hrs and first op I've ever had. Had morphine... READ MORE

On July 7th 2014 I will be doing the DIEP FLAP procedure to have my silicone remove after getting CC. My biggest fair is I was still smoking until one week before the surgery and I have heard that smoking messes with the healing process. Can anyone one advise on that. After going through so...
