Was diagnosed with breast cancer after my first and routine mammogram. Dr Meade performed my breast reconstruction with temporary implants after surgery in April. He then performed a DIEP flap breast reconstruction in September. I am incredibly happy with the outcome and the care he and his... READ MORE

I had a double Mastectomy w reconstruction 3 yrs ago. My first Dr put in implants that were to big as well as not reinforced. I met w several Drs but as soon as I met Dr. Nygaard I knew she was the Doctor for me. I absolutely love her and she did an amazing job. I would highly recommend her... READ MORE

Dr. Bogue is a well-respected doctor and, just as importantly, works closely with other highly rated doctors. I am a BRCA1 woman with a family history of breast and ovarian cancer. Although I knew the risks and was determined to follow through on prophylactic removal of my breasts, I was very... READ MORE

Dr. Gabriel is the most amazing surgeon - you cannot go wrong with him. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2013 at 43 years of age. I had 6 tumors in my left breast, and no sign in my right. My care team suggested my left breast be removed, and I felt it best to give them the... READ MORE

I never found anyone in El Paso, Texas I was comfortable with to have reconstructive surgery, yet I felt so lopsided. A 42 DD on one side and a small almost C on the other. Wore a partial prosthetic and my scar tissue hurt really bad. I heard about Dr. Agullo from a friend who knew him in... READ MORE

I am 58 years old and had a mastectomy with an implant 8 years ago. I recently decided to get things evened up. I had my old silicon implant replaced and a lift done on the other breast. I was able to go up from a 500 to a 600 and needed a slight reduction on the other breast as well as a lift... READ MORE

I had a complicated case - breasts that were malformed, and very different both in size and shape. I had contacted Dr. Khan's colleague, Dr. Tebbetts, in 2010 and essentially had my case turned down because it was too complicated. Frustrated, I waited a couple of years and tried again after...

Two years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. At first, all that envelopes you is fear and anxiety. Where do I go, who do I go to, will I survive. I was very fortunate to live so close to Morristown Hospital and the Carol Simon Cancer Center. It became very clear, very quickly who the team... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer after a lumpectomy in September 2014. My breast surgeon gave me a couple of treatment options (1) more surgery to have clear margins from the cancer that was removed, followed by radiation, and then be on a medication for 10 years or (2) bilateral...

I had my original reconstruction for Poland's Syndrome over 10 years ago when I was 14-15. I had Saline implants placed over the muscle. Even though gel implants were available for reconstructive surgery at that time my surgeon went with Saline in order to correct my drastic difference in... READ MORE

I have had bad mammograms for 4 years, having to have mammograms, sonograms, and biopsies every 6 months. This last round of mammograms showed some major changes, as did the MRI with contrast. This put me at a very high risk for breast cancer, and I am so glad I opted for the double mastectomy... READ MORE

Hi ladies, Whilst I have no doubt I have made the right decision I still am finding it hard to come to terms with how small I am! My surgeon and I agreed to go with a D to a DD cup size as I have a small waist and medium frame. However after getting the nipple stitches taken out today and all... READ MORE

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy. I was to have the surgery after I finished all of my chemo treatments. So everything leading up to the mastectomy was sort of a blur but I do remember looking forward to my surgery because it was the final phase of my... READ MORE

After right breast mastectomy surgery, Dr Perkins inserted a tissue expander and later I had several saline "top ups" to expand the tissue. Dr. Perkins was recommended to me by my Breast surgeon Dr Peter Schwartz. Dr Perkins consultation was very thorough as is his website with lots of before... READ MORE

Unfortunately, the surgeon that removed my right breast damaged much of the tissue, so, 4 extra surgeries were required and an extra year of healing time. Dr Wong was wonderful throughout the process. I had no problems scheduling appointments or booking surgery times that happened within 2-3... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with extensive DCIS in March of 2014. After a failed lumpectomy, I decided to make a decision that felt right for me, as I wanted cancer out of my life ASAP. I had a skin-sparing bilateral mastectomy in June 2014 followed by immediate reconstruction with alloderm by a very... READ MORE

I have DCIS in two spots so a lumpectomy is out of the question,so here I go with the bilateral.. Liked my surgeon and then got the run around with Drs that actually take insurance!! Going for a second consult next week. I don't even have a date for the surgery yet. No chemo needed, no... READ MORE

Bilateral breast reconstruction with "gummy bear" inserts...absolutely flawless result..even at this early stage: (takes several mos for tissue to settle completely in what was a totally vacant chest cavity post mastectomy).. This procedure took his incomparable skill, his exquisite artistry and... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Anton after having my breasts done by another doctor, along with a "superficial" tummy tuck where they cut you below the breasts and pull your stomach skin up to achieve a tighter tummy. I looked like an alien and really just lost hope that I would ever look normal. I basically... READ MORE

My mastectomy in 2012 left me devastated, both physically and emotionally. I always intended on pursuing reconstruction as I knew using a prosthesis was not a long-term solution for me, but had to wait until after treatment including chemo, radiation and Herceptin before going down the...
