I was diagnosed with breast cancer (DCIS-right side) in December 2012. I was fortunate that this was caught very early by mammogram. Initially the plan was for me to have a lumpectomy followed by weeks of radiation treatment. DCIS is tricky though. I had 3 surgeries which failed to result in... READ MORE

I was motivated to have surgery due to my desire to cut my risk of breast cancer. I was completely unfamiliar with the entire process, but Dr. Howell and his staff were incredibly patient, kind, and skilled. Although this is a less common procedure, Dr. Howell gave me relevant and up to date... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Aug 22, 14. Terrified, my oncologist suggested Dr. Heistein. Best doctor ever. The reconstruction stage can take months, and we just started, but he and his staff are amazing. He is gentle, and compassionate. His staff is the same. All my fears are gone with... READ MORE

I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Iteld. My journey started back in March 2014 when I opted for a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, due to a lump, and dcis found in my left breast. My team consisted of Dr. Maker who is chief of surgery at Illinois Masonic and Dr. Iteld who... READ MORE

Dr. Basu performed breast reconstruction, immediately following my bi-lateral mastectomy. While I was pleased with the results, the skin on my right breast did not survive, necessitating another surgery. This time, Dr. Basu performed a DIEP flap. Essentially taking skin/tissue from my... READ MORE

For a while I had been looking around for a plastic and reconstructive surgeon to correct the mistakes my first surgeon had done. Years ago my first doctor lied to me by placing my implant above the muscle instead of below the muscle. Because of this my breast became hard (capsule contracture)... READ MORE

I didn't know about this site until recently. If you are like I was in 2009, thinking about breast reconstruction but have no idea who to consider as a surgeon, I'd like to tell you about who I chose and why. My surgeon performed 2 breast recons on me, a DIEP Flap in '09 and implant in 2010. I... READ MORE

I am a breast cancer survivor who waited 5 years before starting reconstruction. That was over 10 years ago. Although my plastic surgeon of many years was good, for some reason he had a difficult time reaching symmetry between my reconstructed breast and my real breast. After my insurance... READ MORE

This is the best decision I ever made, I could not feel better! the surgery took about 4 1/2 hours I stayed over night there was very little pain. Dr. Lee knew my past experience with infection and treated me with strong antibiotics prior to the surgery. i was sent home with a very nice... READ MORE

I had a terrible outcome, infection, necrotic tissue, wound vac, hyperbaric chamber visits, uneven breast size, dog ears, scarring that is still very bright pink and huge. My breasts are so dissimilar in size cannot find a bra that fits without having to wear a prosthetic. Ashamed to have... READ MORE

After finding out I was a BRCA2 gene carrier, and having lost 8 close female family members to breast or ovarian cancer, I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy and oophorectomy with breast reconstruction. This decision turned out to be the right choice since when having a pre-op MRI it was... READ MORE

I was diagnosed in January with breast cancer and faced with the need to remove one breast. In reviewing my options nothing seemed appealing until my general surgeon told me of the Direct to Implant procedure, which allowed me to remove my breasts and get implants in one surgery only. It made... READ MORE

I just had a breast augmentation with dr. Rahban 3 weeks ago and I could not be more amazed with the results. I say breast augmentation but what dr. Rahban did for me was really breast reconstruction. Dr. Rahban was one of several surgeons I consulted regarding this issue. After a breast... READ MORE

From the first day I met Doctor Emily Williams, I knew she was the person who I wanted to help me through my breast cancer journey. She was kind and compassionate and listened to my concerns as well as answered all of the questions my family had. My recovery was complicated and full of many... READ MORE

HIGHLY recommended doctor/surgeon and team!!!! When my biopsy confirmed I had breast cancer, they began to do many tests, which showed another possible cancer area and they wanted to biopsy that also. I was done with tests and biopsies and decided to give up my breasts. I remember the fear,... READ MORE

I had bilateral nipple and skin-sparing mastectomy (IDC of right breast and prophylactic mastectomy of left breast; strong family history, multiple biopsies and age at diagnosis- 40) in October 2013 with immediate placement of expanders. Right nipple did not completely make it. I am... READ MORE

Dr Bresnick is hands down the BEST doctor I have ever had the privilege of working with. I came to Dr Bresnick physically scarred, mentally exhausted and verging on being all together broken and he quite literally saved my life. Prior to meeting Dr Bresnick I had opted to do a fat transfer in... READ MORE

I had a skin saving bilateral mastectomy with tissue expanders. I'm going today for my 5th expansion. My doctor mention that this was the last expansion. I'm not happy with my size. I've had a total of 240 CC so far. I will get 80 CC today? Is there any way I can continue expanding? Also my... READ MORE

I was referred to Dr. Kara Criswell for breast reconstruction following a lumpectomy. After 3 pregnancies (including twins), I’d recently lost weight. In addition to needing breast reconstruction, I told her I was unhappy with my post weight loss figure. Kara did a breast reduction and lift... READ MORE
