I began seeing Dr. Schusterman in April of 2011 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. My treatment plan consisted of a bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstruction and implants. Because my cancer had not spread to the lymph nodes I did not have to have radiation or chemo treatments and was able to begin treatment right away.
The day of my mastectomy I came out of surgery with the tissue expanders and over a period of 6 weeks they were filled and I was able to have the surgery to put in my silicone implants. Since then I have had several procedures to perfect the size and position of the implants with my last procedure being in March of 2013.
