Facelift - Richmond, VA

Dr. Ladocsi is the best! After being diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2011, my husband, myself, and our breast cancer surgeon decided that I would undergo a mastectomy with breast reconstruction. Dr. Ladocsi was highly recommended to perform the reconstruction and we chose him. On our first visit with Dr. Ladocsi, we knew we had made the right decision for my plastic surgeon. He...

Tummy & Breast Reduction - Richmond, VA

I had gastric bypass in December 2009 and lost about 100 lbs as a result.

He knew the lastest surgery possibilities and shared them with me. We opted for a combination breast...

Sometimes Second Opinions Are Worth It! - Richmond, VA

In 2008, I found myself fast approaching 420 pounds in a continued decade-long struggle with my weight. I was very unhealthy, with a list of co-morbidities that would most likely have resulted in an early exit for me.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2012. I needed to have a bi-lateral mastectomy. I was petrified and unsure about my course of treatment.
