Do not go to Dr Criswell. Horrible results, scaring, and several complications. When I was having lots of problems she would not call me or get me In to see her for over a week. I've had 2nd and 3rd opinions from other plastic surgeons that were shocked at her results. Having to have her work fixed. READ MORE

Cancer sucks, but I'm very lucky and had a great team help me KILL it! I had a double mastectomy 11/19/14 & was off work 6 weeks. I remember it like it was a vacation (hubs waited on me, peeps visited and brought food, I slept TONS, wasn't allowed to clean, etc.) I don't even remember pain,... READ MORE

I had breast implants since 1989 and had them replaced in 2006. (size D) Last December, I was diagnosed with cancer in my left breast. I had a mastectomy in February. I didn't have reconstruction immediately because we were wanting to see if I needed radiation or chemo. Thankfully, I did not... READ MORE

I am now 6 years out from my breast cancer with reconstruction. I elected to have a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. I have never regret having this done and have always been very happy with my results. Dr. Tierney was and still a wonderful doctor and very good at what he does. I would... READ MORE

I've lurked on the site but this is my first time posting about myself. Here goes....I guess my journey began back in 2002 when I was originally diagnosed with BC.

Breast Reconstruction My second stage II breast reconstruction for dcis grade 3 b/c, is good to go with talented, (board certification+experience) soft spoken, ( concerned +focused )micro-surgeon Dr Gupta. He will complete a reduction and lift on both breast. Finding that trust we placed... READ MORE

After cancer robs you of many things including your breast, reconstruction is a way of feeling whole again. I had two-stage reconstruction. At the time of my mastectomy I had tissue expanders inserted. After weekly "fills" of saline water I am now at my chosen size and I am awaiting implants in... READ MORE

After going thru a nightmare for a year with another surgeon (not associated with Dr. Harper or Charlotte Plastic Surgery) Dr. Harper came to the rescue. He spent 4 hours making my breast perfect! He has the best bed side manner and is so polite. Doctor of The Year Award would be pretty close!!... READ MORE

In December 2014, I was diagnosed with two types of breast tumors that could ultimately kill me. I was working with a breast surgeon in my area to plan out the steps of recovery. It has been a very physical and emotional road, but I am gratefully on the other end. Within the last 9 months, I... READ MORE

My doctor found some small lumps in my right breast during a routine pap. After a mammogram and an ultrasound I was scheduled for a biopsy. After biopsy I was diagnosed with DCIS in the right breast.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 years old can be overwhelming. I was ex with a very aggressive high grade DCIS in my left breast on 08/28/14. I decided to undergoe double mastectomy with TE reconstruction on 10/21/14. I hope to be able to support and encourage anyone with the same fears... READ MORE

U decide. I am in so much pain all the time. I can't sleep on them, I can't lay on them. They hurt when I swim they hurt when I try to work out they hurt when I do housecleaning. They are constantly on my mind and I am constantly trying to hide them. It is so embarrassing. I look like a freak. I... READ MORE

Hello Ladies! Ever since I started my reconstruction process, I tried finding pictures of large women out there who have been through this same experience, in order to get a better understanding of the implant options. I could find some posts but not a lot of pictures so, here I am sharing my... READ MORE

My motivation was to see if cold caps work and to be in control of something- keeping my hair during a time where I'm going to feel sick, months and months of chemo, surgery, losing a part of my body, having radiation, and possibly going in to early menopause. My motivation was not to have... READ MORE
