Breast Reconstruction After Breast Cancer Removal - Houston, TX

I was diagnosed with stage one cancer on May 23, 2013. I was only 42 years old and as you can imagine, fear, anxiety, and my future living was weighing heavily on my mind, heart and soul. I wanted a mastectomy as soon as possible. All my doctors said not to worry, you have plenty of time. It is a slow growing cancer. You cannot tell someone who has cancer, that they have plenty of time! Dr. Schusterman understood my concerns and made my surgery happen in 4 day!!!!!!! He was heaven sent and has truly blessed my life. Each and every time I visit, I don't feel like a patient, but a friend who has utter compassion for people who go through such an ordeal. When you have cancer, you feel so alone. Dr. Schusterman and his staff helped me to understand through their kindness and nurturing, that I was not alone. My breasts look better than they did before the diagnosis. I am still wearing expanders and I am already very pleased with the outcome. I feel so confident in Dr. Schusterman. I would never use anyone else.
Houston Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Schusterman is the only plastic surgeon that I would ever use. His compassion for my situation and his genuine interest in my quality of life and self image made me feel as though I had an advocate for life. Once I was diagnosed with breast cancer, surgery was scheduled with another reputable plastic surgeon. But, God blessed me with having a second opinion with Dr. Schusterman. From the moment I sat down with him, I knew in my heart that he would take care of me and "carry" me through this cancer diagnosis. After meeting Dr. Schusterman, he felt my anxiety and fear, and knew how important it was for me to have the surgery as soon as possible. He made the surgery happen in 4 days! His workmanship is outstanding! My breasts are still in recovery after the mastectomy, but they honesty already look better than ever before. Dr. Schusterman gave me my life back. I will forever be grateful for his kindness, professionalism, and his desire to help women like me, who are faced with cancer. Sincerely, Tonya Lloyd
