All Real Patient Stories

  • Breast Surgery After Double Mastectomy

    For patient Lynn, she decided to have breast augmentation at 36 years old. 10 years later, she decided to do it again, but only a year and a half after that procedure, Lynn was diagnosed with breast cancer. This led her to decide to return to her surgeon, with whom she had a great relationship, due to her two previous procedures, to perform a third. She decided to have a mastectomy with her oncologist, with her board certified plastic surgeon doing her reconstruction. 

  • Lynn's Life-Changing Tummy Tuck

    Lynn had never worn the clothes she really wanted to wear, as she felt that she had to hide parts of her body that she did not like. She was afraid to have a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, due to the amount of downtime and the degree of work it entailed, but her board certified plastic surgeon put her at ease immediately. He showed her before and after photographs, thoroughly described the procedure, gave her care instructions for both pre- and post-surgery, and answered all of her questions, which gave her a strong level of comfort with the procedure.
