When it came time to selecting a plastic surgeon, I didn't have to worry, as my girlfriend who does nipple tattooing (and sees thousands of Breasts a year!) told me that Dr. Gawley's work was the best! From the moment I entered his beautiful office, I knew I was in the right place. Choosing a... READ MORE

What a year 2015 has been. This is a very shortened version of what I wanted to write. I left out the doubts, fears, and quite a bit of the healing process. I can add that later.

I never thought my breasts were attractive. My mother also has tuberous breasts, but we didn't know that it was a congenital defect. We just thought ours were different. It wasn't until I failed to produce more than drops of breast milk when I had my first child. I researched and researched and... READ MORE

This cancer nightmare started July 2014. Let me start by telling you I went to my doc asking for ultrasound of right breast because I had a lot of pain. I was told it can't be cancer because pain is not a sign (BULL). I preferred ultrasound as going thru peri menopause I was so tender I knew I... READ MORE

I was told he was the best. He was three hours from my home. Never got answers or advise. He never really heard to me. I felt rushed and unimportant. He team is not on the same page. My reconstruction failed ended with an infection leaving with one breast. Last visit he was rude uncaring and... READ MORE

Dr. Chopra is an amazing doctor. I interviewed 3 other plastic surgeons and when I met Dr. Chopra I knew immediately he was the perfect fit for me. I always came to him with a list of questions and he was always patient and prompt, answering all my questions with details and honesty. Dr... READ MORE

I've had to wait for an entire year for my breasts to be replaced. I did a lot a research and praying and was lead to Dr. Theresa Wang and Dr. Sam Shih. I've been nothing but pleased from start to finish. Their office staff (Christy and Daisy) are just as awesome as are they. When I... READ MORE

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Tierney! He is an extremely skilled surgeon and a wonderful person. The first time I met with him (to discuss breast reconstruction following a nipple-sparing double mastectomy) I was impressed by his knowledge and his warm, caring nature. He took the... READ MORE
