I wrote my update in the space below. Dr. David Palaia is a proficient, caring, dedicated surgeon operating out of Northern Westchester Hospital. He has a wonderful bedside manner and he genuinely cares about his patients. After more than 30 years (I found my right breast cancer in 1982), Dr. Palaia
made my breasts symmetrical and totally right for my size. I can now wear normal bras, sweaters, and dresses and there is no difference from right to left.
I would encourage any woman who is unhappy with her reconstruction results to have a consult with Dr. David Palaia. Well worth it!!

I have known Dr. David Palaia since shortly after I found my right breast cancer, which had already spread. (1982) Since the original mastectomy and lymph node dissection in 1982, I had to wait 2 years to even consider any type of reconstruction (at that time there was a two-year protocol for breast cancer with node involvement). Along the decades that followed, I have had at least 5 changes to my implant. I went back to Dr. Palaia in 2015 as my left breast was not a good match for the right one. Even though I have not changed in weight since my original surgery, my left breast was much too big for the implant on my right side. Dr. Palaia knew what to do, and he did it wonderfully. He changed the implant in my right breast and put in a new, more draped version which is now available. He then worked on the left side, making the breast a lot smaller and symmetrical with the right breast. I am thrilled with the results!! Now I can wear nice bras, and there is absolutely no difference from left to right in a sweater, dress, or summer top. I have a new-found freedom! I highly recommend Dr. David Palaia (Mt. Kisco, NY) to anyone who is looking for an alteration in breast symmetry to make themselves feel and look better. The Doctor even took some fat from my abdominal area to fill in certain areas on the that needed it. I see the good Doctor in a few weeks for a second checkup and pictures. Purrrfectly Happy
