"My entire experience with Dr. Clancy was so great from the first consultation through every step of my recovery. I knew having smaller breasts would positively impact my quality of life, but I never expected them to be so sexy! At 43, after nursing two kids for 2 years, I never thought I would have perky breasts again."

All I could do for weeks was talk about how overwhelmingly happy I was, and how this was the best decision I have ever made for my body. Finally, I am free. "

"When I look at myself in the mirror now I no longer see cancer. I feel like a woman again. It was really hard for me to have a double mastectomy at such a young age.
