A breast cancer diagnosis led me to the decision to have a complete mastectomy of the left breast. I met with Dr. Salemy prior to the mastectomy to discuss reconstruction. This was a valuable and critical step in this process and I highly recommend that you include him in early discussions if you are going to have a mastectomy. I decided to have the left breast reconstructed with a lift & augmentation of the right breast to match. Dr. Salemy and his entire staff are supportive and professional. I always felt that my concerns were viewed as important. My final reconstructive surgery was completed 90 days ago and I am extremely pleased. Recovery was smooth and the outcome is great...I was worried about having breasts that looked fake but mine are very natural in appearance. Dr. Salemy has been a critical part of my recovery thanks to his expertise, realistic approach, and positive attitude! I am thrilled with the outcome and very grateful that I chose Dr. Salemy!
