I am the daughter of a breast cancer survivor. I have a gene mutation called BRCA2 that significantly increases my risk of developing breast cancer. Even though I am in my 20s I knew I wanted my breasts removed in order to possibly save my life. It was a huge decision and one that was filled with fear and uncertainty. Looking back it was the best decision I could have made. I am so happy with the outcome. My new breasts are very realistic in appearance and comfortable even with my active lifestyle. I even got to keep my own nipples.
Thankfully I was referred to Dr. Haydon. After my first visit with Dr. Haydon and Wanda I felt so much better about my decision. He provided me with compassion, knowledge and confidence to move forward. I am so grateful to Dr. Haydon and his wonderful team. They have given me an opportunity to live the rest of my life to the fullest.
