5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Diagnosed 2X W/ Breast Cancer, Double Mastectomy and Delayed DIEP Flap with Dr. Chrysopoulo - San Antonio, TX

Breast Reconstruction -San Antonio, TX

Excellent surgeon who took the time to explain the procedure. Was a real person to me who restored what cancer took away. Beautiful results that surpassed what I expected. So very thankful Dr. C was my surgeon!

PRMA is Great - San Antonio, TX

Dr. Chrysopoulo is a wealth of knowledge. His staff is great and the office is very professional. I was referred to his office by another plastic surgeon. There are times in everyone's life when you look back and wonder if you did the right thing. I am confident I did the right thing when I entrusted Dr. C with my breast reconstruction.
