Fat Transfer After Reconstruction to Add to Implants for Natural Look and Suppleness. Bellevue, WA

I opted for a double mastectomy following breast cancer diagnosis. I had expanders placed at the time of that surgery, then implants placed after chemo, implants switched a few months later and this is the final stage of my awesome reconstruction!

Dr. Erik Suh of Eastside Primary Care and Wellness is a master injector. I have had botox and filler from other providers in the past who used double the product with half the result.
