Post Bilateral Mastectomy Implants Replaced with Fat Only - Key Biscayne, FL

My double mastectomy, expander process and implant...

My double mastectomy, expander process and implant placement was a complete mess. I endured 4 surgeries, thousands of dollars out of pocket, a life threatening MRSA inflection and 10 months out of work only to end up with the inability to move either arm normally, constant pain, and a cosmetic result that gave me a set of AA rock hard cold "breasts" . I would have been far happier with nothing. Of all the surgeons I met, only Dr. Khouri told me he could restore my function rather than my looks. I literally got my life back and returned to work as a physician 2 weeks after my first surgery. I just finished my 4th procedure with him and I could not be happier. While I am scheduled for one more revision, the results are outstanding. My pain is gone, my lymphedema substantially improved, my arm function has returned, and I now have a proportionate 38D real, soft, warm, normal looking breasts with sensation.
The staff is super friendly and right on top of everything. They are extremely easy to communicate with by phone or email. Each follow up procedure was scheduled at my post op visit making planning very easy. The insurance processes is handled completely for you. The surgery center itself is convenient, and the staff there all caring and extremely competent as well.
My only regret is that I did not know about Dr. Khouri before my mastectomies.

From lousy looking with implants to fabulous with fat graft only reconstruction

I think the photos speak for themselves, but what you don't see is the severe pain and the restriction in movement of my arms that I was suffering in the first photo

Post Mastectomy Breast Reconstruction with Fat Transfer

This was my 6th surgery by Dr. Khouri to repair my botched implant reconstruction after bilateral mastectomy that was originally done in Erie, PA. The man is an artist and I feel like I have transformed from looking like my surgeries were done by Picasso to Michaelangelo. I now have breasts that look and feel better than what I had before the mastectomies. The pre-op appointment wait time is often exceptionally long (over 3 hours) because he does them during breaks in his OR schedule, but once he sees you, you will have his undivided attention. If you bring a sandwich, tons of reading material and a healthy attitude that it is worth the wait to see the very best, then the wait wont bother you. The pre-op communications with surgical scheduler and coordinator Cindy are extremely efficient, prompt and responsive. Blanca, the RN, also answers any questions promptly either through email or her personal cell phone. While all surgery is uncomfortable, I actually found myself looking forward to my trips to Miami and as I recover this time I am a little sad that this was my probably my last procedure and I wont be interacting with this exceptional team any more.

Miami Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Khouri is one of the world experts in breast reconstruction. and the recognition is well deserved. After personally being involved in the development of silicone implants and performing hundreds of micro vascular flap graft reconstructions over two decades, he felt there had to be a better way. He is on the cutting edge of surgical technique development and regularly trains Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons from all around the world, both here in the formal course he offers as well as by giving educational presentations all around the world.
