My breast surgeon who did my bilateral mastectomy referred me. There are no cons! The Dr. and her staff including Lilly were just what I needed when I found out that I had breast cancer. I had no doubt that I would have a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction and the providers that I chose every step of the way were the best and I would refer any family member or friend to this provider for... more
I was so scared until I met Dr. Karen Vaniver, she made me feel so at ease. She explain to me what was going to happen. How I would heal, and she was so honest and caring that I trusted her.

At the time of the mastectomy, tissue expanders were placed under the chest muscle. Over the next 6 months, the expanders were filled to create room for the saline implants. Dr. K understood my concerns of wanting to look natural and not too big. Dr. K later made... more
I had heard of a study that showed that women who had immediate reconstruction looked at themselves in the mirror and thought about what they would do today, and those who looked in the mirror without reconstruction thought, "I have cancer." because of the scars. That made sense to me. Every time I buy clothes, I don't have to figure out how it will look with no breasts. I have a... more
