5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

I would highly recommend Dr. Cindy Wu

Fantastic! I had reconstruction after having a double mastectomy and Dr. Wu was helpful, kind, and professional through the entire experience. I always felt like she was looking out for me as a patient and was very concerned with my happiness about my results.

She is a BEAST!

My experience with Dr. Wu was amazing. I had a bilateral breast reduction. She did an excellent job and everyone whom I came into contact with treated me very well. She was very professional and gave me all the knowledge that was needed to take care of my self after surgery. I have referred about 10 new patients to her and are looking for more. So please if you are in need of any thing...

Thank you Dr. Wu!

My breast reduction was done by Dr. Wu on November 28, 2016. She and her nurse Katie made me feel so comfortable. They both are fantastic - punctual, caring, responsive and professional. I am thrilled with Dr. Wu and the results of my procedure. No issues at all either pre or post surgery. Highly recommend Dr. Wu!!

Stellar Results from a Gifted Surgeon!

I underwent a bilateral, nipple sparing mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. My results were stellar! Dr. Wu is not only a skilled plastic surgeon but a true artist. She is a warm and caring professional. She explained the procedure clearly and in great detail with confidence. This allowed me to trust her completely so I had no fear going into surgery. The healing process was easy and...

Not easy for a man!

As a teenager, I had a Gynecomastia procedure (male breast reduction). Unfortunately, not knowing any better, my parents took me to a general surgeon instead of a plastic surgeon. The general surgeon took out way too much tissue, leaving me with a major "bird chest", plus horrible scarring. I've always been self-conscious about taking off my shirt, wearing fitted clothing, etc. I went to see...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Wonderful experience with Dr. Wu!

Dr. Wu performed a breast reduction and lift on me about 4 months ago - I just turned 29, and had been very unhappy with the shape, size, and droop of my breasts since my teenage years. I finally decided to go through with it, and found Dr. Wu on this website. Her office scheduled a consultation with me almost immediately after I inquired about one. I was also incredibly nervous about the...

29 Year Old Breast Reduction 34DDD/F to 34C - Chapel Hill, NC

Had procedure(s) done because I was experience severe back pain from carrying breast for so long. I'm very petite and my breast weight were hindering rehabilitation of my injured shoulder as well.

Healing took a toll on my body and I lost weight (I'm 5'...
