In the big scheme of things being alive and healthy is the most important thing, but the thought of losing my breasts was extremely scary. Thanks to Dr. Apostolides I ended up with Picture Perfect Poster Boobs for Breast Cancer!!! My new girls are better than the old ones!   With... READ MORE

A month and two weeks ago I had undergone my first surgery. My left breast was an A cup and my right breast was a C cup with premature sagging and a much bigger nipple as compared to my left breast. I am 19 years old and had first noticed this difference when I was 14. Since the age of 15, my... READ MORE

After a long journey with Cancer!! Doctor Khoobehi did a wonderful job with my reconstruction. I had implant reconstruction after chemo, radiation and unilateral mastectomy. In order to make the breast softer after radiation Dr Khoobehi did fat injections.   READ MORE

Dr Pousti recommended that I have a two-stage procedure for safety purposes and to achieve the desired look and size I wanted. I had a breast lift at Stage 1 and breast augmentation in Stage 2 three months later. My surgical procedures went smoothly and I am very pleased with the outcome. READ MORE

Unfortunately, almost 3 months into reconstruction it failed. I decided to go with an expander with my radiated skin. My PS was very honest from the beginning that I was very high risk. I was so confident that it would succeed. It didn't! Now I need to make a choice if I will do a flap. I hate... READ MORE

My reconstructed implant is still swollen. I believe it will shrink a little. I had a mastectomy with tram flap surgery with skin sparing 8 years ago. My reconstructed breast was very small and I decided to have a silicon implant. This is the result after 12 days of surgery. Hi... READ MORE

All I can say is wow. Speechless. First, I never knew that breasts could be made to look normal again after breast cancer and mastectomy. What people should really understand is every single medical procedure, big or small, surgical or not, is a process so be patient and healing depends on the... READ MORE

Pretty obvious - I had a double mastectomy I interviewed 3 plastic surgeons. Did not like #1, however I loved #2, Dr. Jeffrey Lang. However, even though breast reconstruction is 100% covered by insurance, his office said I had to pay up front and then get reimbursed! Since I didn't have... READ MORE

I had had numerous lumpectomies in prior yrs and 13 in that year alone, finally electing to be proactive, I chose the procedure of a bi-lateral mastectomy to reduced my already high risk of cancer and the number of times I was having to go in for lumpectomies. My lumps were solid... READ MORE

I had a hysterectomy and double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction with implants. My first surgery went much better than I thought.

Dr. Revis sucessfully treated my symmastia. I had one of the worst cases he had ever seen, what equated to essentially a 5" hole in the center of my chest. Using the internal bra technique and permanent sutures, he successfully treated what was a devasting issue for me. Not many surgeons have... READ MORE
