17 years ago, at age 30, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I opted to have a bilateral mastectomy. Dr. K was my plastic surgeon. At the time of the mastectomy, tissue expanders were placed under the chest muscle. Over the next 6 months, the expanders were filled to create room for the saline implants. Dr. K understood my concerns of wanting to look natural and not too big. Dr. K later made nipples from my existing skin and then they were tattooed.
Most insurance cover the cost of reconstructive breast surgery. Difficult to estimate a dollar amount.
My Doctor: Jeffrey E. Kyllo, MD
At every step of the way Dr. K and his staff were professional, courteous and compassionate.
