A few months after my surgery my body rejected one of the implants (extrusion) and I was hysterical. Dr. Rad was so calm and explained how he could perform a "lat flap" reconstruction to repair it and I would be back to work only 2 weeks later. He is a specialist in micro-vascular surgery so I did not have to go and find someone new when this happened. I am very thin and did not have many options for fat/skin grafting. He knew just what to do and I never had to lose the implant which would have been very upsetting. I did return to work only 13 days later feeling so good and the scars were minimal and quickly fading. I look so good that 3 different acquaintances who did not know about my cancer experience asked me who did my "boob job." I can not ask for better results than that.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Rad for breast reconstruction as he is both a highly skilled surgeon as well as an artist. That combination is perfect. I am very happy with the results of my reconstruction after BMX. Dr. Rad did everything he said he would do and more. I really feel like he cared about me both as a patient and a person. Reconstruction is a physical process but has a mental component to it and I think some doctors do not think much about that from a woman's perspective. I felt like Dr. Rad did. Adding this to his top notch surgical skills made the process so much easier. I look and feel great.
