5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap

My body finally fits!

Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a bilateral mastectomy with latissimus dorsa flap reconstruction. Recently, he performed a fat grafting procedure to make my breast implants appear more natural. Dr. Schaefer was able to fulfill a life long dream of mine by using fat from liposuction of my calves and ankles. I can truly call this experience life changing. For the first...

Breast Cancer/ Bilateral Mastectomy - Edina, MN

Dr. Schaefer is very knowledgeable, kind, empathetic and supportive. I felt cared for in all aspects of my pre-surgery, the surgery and aftercare/post-op. His staff, Lori is AMAZING and the front desk staff is very kind and supportive as well. I never once felt uneasy in this entire process. I felt I was treated with the up-most dignity. The atmosphere is healing, positive and very supportive. I am grateful my experience WAS NOT traumatizing for me based upon the kind of surgery I had to have. Breast cancer is scary enough. I feel very confident that if you go to Dr. Schaefer you will not be disappointed.

Posting these photos is hard...
