Reconstruction Surgery for me was the best decision that I have made. To be able to put on a dress and a t-shirt and look like a normal women. I am 1 year post-op and now in Sep. 2012 I will get my areolas and nipples done.
My Review on Breast Reconstruction - New York, NY
Reconstruction Surgery for me was the best...
I was diagnosed with breast cancer on 11/10. I was...
Dr. Dominick Filardi was the surgeon that did the double mastectomy and Dr. Antonio Uria was the PS that did the reconstruction surgery. On 1/11 I had the double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction, my plastic surgeon placed expanders and the next 6 months before my chemo treatments I went to get between 60 to 100 cc on each breast to expand to a total 750 cc on each breast. I had the expanders replaced on 08/11 with silicone implants. I love my implants I feel like me again.
On Feb. 2012 I had my areolas and nipples reconstructed and they look good, really really good. This Oct. 2012 My PS will tattoo my areolas to darken them and shade them. I will keep you updated it. I’m good so Far really good. God bless and will keep you updated.
On 12/19/12 - I had my areolas and nipple's...
My PS said to come back around 3/13, he will do one more round shadding.
My experience has benn a positive one with my PS. Everything that he has done I love.
Will keep you updated. Happy Holidays.
I did go for 3 seperate opions on the reconstruction. Dr. Uria did take the time to explain things to me. I must have asked the same question 100 times and he answered 100 times. Very nice and well educated doctor. I love my PS. My PS did a fantastic job on the recostruction. He took his time and explained everything to me and my husband. His staff is always kind and with a happy smile on.
