Breast Reconstruction and Augmentation After Lumpectomy - Laguna Hills, CA

After lumpectomy, the affected breast was...

After lumpectomy, the affected breast was distinctly affected to the extent that it did not hang properly while bending over. Moreover, the affected part was on an upper inside quadrant of the breast and quite visible while standing normally.

There was significant damage inside the breast from the catheterized radiation therapy on TOP of the lumpectomy on already quite small breasts. Dr. Zelken was totally up front and honest from the very start and said it would be difficult to get a perfect result on a case as difficult as mine. However, even when it turned out to be MORE difficult than he envisioned, he did a wonderful job of getting quite near a perfect result. Between the work he did to correct the flaw as well as the mild augmentation to fill in the void in the lumpectomy breast and milder augmentation on the other to make them match, I have a result that I am very happy with.

All through, Dr. Zelken and his staff were caring and attentive and were very happy to fully involve my entire family during all phases of treatment from the initial consultation to post surgical care. Dr. Zelken always had a cheerful demeanor and not only was but wholly demonstrated that my happiness and care was uppermost in his mind.
