Breast reconstruction is most commonly performed following a mastectomy. Women who want to restore the volume and shape of their breasts may choose to get breast implants, tissue (commonly called "flap") reconstruction, or a combination. Doctors tend to recommend tissue reconstruction for patients who have undergone radiation therapy, due to their increased risks for capsular contracture (a problematic scar tissue response to implants). Nipple reconstruction is also frequently part of the process. LEARN MORE ›

Dr. Song was recommended by my Breast Surgeon, Dr. Cursio, to perform the reconstruction of my breasts. I'm 55 and very physically active. I just wanted my same size (B) but was very concerned about keeping my strength and flexibility. My results are amazing! I feel completely normal but... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May, 2013 and began the research in my treatment options and decided to go a more permananent route with a bilateral mastectomy and breast reconstruction. The process of finding a good plastic surgeon, I quickly learned, was not like shopping for a car but... READ MORE

I cannot convey how amazing this process was. Not only was my life saved, but I was given phenomenal cosmetic results. I was blown away by how efficient their fly-in program was. Beth (Office Manager) has the process down to a science. Once I arrived in NY for my consultation, I knew from... READ MORE

I am very greatful to Dr. Khouri and his full crew at the clinic. Dr. Khouri has been devoted in this kind of surgery for over 20 years. He created brava, new techniques etc. to lead this fat graft breast reconstructin surgery in the world. I met so many doctors at his clinic coming to learn... READ MORE

I was given a horrible diagnosis again...breast cancer for the second time. I had to get a double mastectomy and Dr Meade gave me the best news of all, I was a candidate for the DIEP Flap procedure. I was able to keep my breast skin/nipple and move tummy fat to create new breast. Breast... READ MORE

Coming to terms with the news that I needed a mastectomy was extremely difficult but once meeting with Dr Moradi and discussing breast reconstruction options, my mind was set to ease with his caring and professional nature. I felt extremely supported by Dr Moradi and his team both before and... READ MORE

After undergoing Chemo before and after my bilateral mastectomy for stage 3 estrogen positive breast cancer in my right breast. I had to undergo more rounds of Chemo to be followed by radiation. I chose not to undergo radiation due to my adverse reactions to the chemo. Plus after requesting an... READ MORE

I am 32 years old with 2 children ages 5 and 8 months. I have been wanting to have my breast redone for a very long time, I had a breast reduction about 14 years ago and they do not look the way I wanted them to. I decide to have children first before getting them revised. I have been searching... READ MORE

The motivation for my breast reconstruction was the fact that I had a benign lump removed that had LCIS tissue (Lobular Carcinoma In Situ) surrounding it. (Pre-Malignant cells). My mother passed away from this type of breast cancer at 65 and had BC for 23 years. She had it 3 times. My... READ MORE

After being diagnosed with breast cancer, the bottom dropped out on my world. I'm SO glad a friend referred me to Dr. Meade. His confidence in my breast reconstruction made me feel confident, and I'm thrilled with the results. I actually look better after cancer! I'm guessing not many people... READ MORE

I had to have a double mastectomy, and Dr. Capizzi and his staff made the reconstruction process do-able and as easy as it could be. Great technical abilities, wonderful compassion and a marvelously caring staff helped during a very difficult time in my life. Would recommend him for anything... READ MORE

Being diagnosed with breast cancer is scary. And being single made it even harder. Having a double mastectomy isn't exactly something you'd think is good for the dating life. But if there can be a blessing in the journey , it's having Dr Meade as my plastic surgeon! My breast reconstruction... READ MORE

I came to this doctor after being referred to him by my oncologist. I was told he was top notch. What I got was not top notch! I had a bilateral breast reconstruction, with tissue expanders, after a previous failure, Almost immediatly I had trouble breathing. When I told Dr. Cannova he told me... READ MORE

After having a lift and implants done in the past, I had 5 different consultations with surgeons. All said I needed the surgery done in two procedures, one to have the implants changed out, and one to have the breast lift redone, EXCEPT Dr. Leighton who assured me he could do it effectively in...

I was against plastic surgery, as I had only seen what I would call "bad reconstruction ". Going to see Dr. Bogue changed not only my opinion, but also my life. I am so happy I went to a consultation and ultimately had my bilateral reconstruction . I am cancer free and I also have breasts... READ MORE

I chose to have immediate bilateral breast reconstruction with tissue expanders following my double mastectomy in October of 2013. Following tissue expansion over the next several months, I was later fitted with Allergan silicone-filled ("gummy bear"), high-projection breast implants which are... READ MORE

After several consultations with plastic surgeons I knew that Dr. Wheeler was the only doctor I wanted to perform my breast reconstruction. My results are incredible and I just don't think I'll ever find the words to thank him and his wonderful staff enough. Dr. Wheeler truly is an 'artist of... READ MORE

I was interested in DIEP Flap because I've had 2 kids, had gained a bit of weight, and saw it as a good opportunity to not only start over with a new body, but also have breasts created from my own tissue rather than implants. Keeping my own nipples was very important to me rather than having... READ MORE

Originally had breast implants performed by another surgeon. He totally destroyed my breast. One was larger than the other. Nipples were completely scarred w no areola and huge! Thankfully, I found Dr. Ali Sadeghi who performed reconstruction. The results were awesome! He did a remarkable job! READ MORE

Having a new breast cancer diagnosis is traumatic! However, I have been immensely impressed following a double mastectomy 4 weeks ago that included amazing breast reconstruction results provided by Dr. Robert Whitfield and his staff. I chose Dr. Whitfield because I could tell from our first... READ MORE
