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.

This surgery made me blossom in ways I was not expecting. I would stare in the mirror just smiling. I just wanted the world to see! I had no idea just HOW much I wanted (and NEEDED) this. 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.

For the first time in my life, I am pain-free. My back doesn't hurt and I can run or workout without my chest feeling heavy. On top of that, I absolutely love how I look! I am no longer "the girl with big boobs." I am just me, no longer defined by my chest. This surgery has given me a chance to live a full life and I am so grateful.

Being a breast cancer previvor I often wonder if people understand my decision to have a preventative double mastectomy. Dr. Clancy always made me feel like she was on my team and wanted to support me through this last step of my surgical journey. I felt heard, seen, and validated. It was greatly appreciated! I am proud of how I have healed from all my body has been through and that I have a positive story to tell about my experience.

There is no way to describe in words how Dr. Nadeau’s work positively changes her patients' lives. I wish I could have had this procedure done much earlier in my life. I can now wear my hair in a ponytail without being self-conscious! I am so happy that I was able to have this surgery and that I found that Dr. Nadeau who did an incredible job.

I am so grateful that in our modern world we have the medicine and surgical procedures available that can transform your exterior appearance to match your interior. FFS has not only helped my gender dysphoria but it has also protected me from the closed-mindedness in our society. I am so grateful that Dr. Liu was my surgeon. If I were to describe my experience as a fairytale, I would be Cinderella and Dr. Liu would be my fairy God-Surgeon.

I am happy with the choice I made! My breasts are warm and soft to the touch and they look and feel more natural than they would have with implants. Losing my breasts hasn't been easy, but as far as Dr. Wei’s work goes, I think the outcome is amazing. She is a true artist and her surgical skills are impressive.

My surgical experience with Dr. Kyllo could not have been any better. I finally feel like I look as good on the outside as I have always felt on the inside! My confidence has increased because I believe that now others see me the same way I have always seen myself. Being a kindergarten teacher takes a lot of energy. I just didn't want to look tired when I wasn't. I have no regrets about the surgery. My experience could not have been better.

I traveled from Canada to have my breast reconstruction revision with Dr. Welk. I’m so happy I did because this surgery allowed me to finally return to feeling good about my body again. It marked the end of being a cancer patient and the beginning of my new life. I’m happy to say Dr. Welk delivered on all of his promises and his great sense of humor made the most stressful period of my life much easier to handle. His experience, expertise, and skills made a complex procedure seem simple. Thank you for helping me put the most stressful time in my life in the rear-view mirror!

I have always known that if I wanted to have a surgical procedure done that Dr. Nadeau would be the one surgeon I could both respect and trust. I am so happy I decided to do it. I look and feel so much more youthful than I did before and as a result, my energy level and confidence have increased. Dr. Nadeau is a dream-maker, competent beyond her years. She is an admired artist, to say the least. I only wish I had done this earlier.

Having breasts that look and feel natural is fantastic and it has been a big boost to my confidence.. Dr. Paige did such a great job that even my oncologist thought my non-cancer side was real! Another added bonus is that my stomach is a bit flatter than it was before. I feel good knowing that I won't suffer any of the potential downsides that can come along with having breast implants.

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. I was left with nothing on my chest but scars for the period of time between mastectomy and reconstruction. Having the breast reconstruction done has restored my confidence. My reconstructed breasts look very natural and are very similar in appearance to my originals. I am very happy with my decision.

Being able to have natural-looking breasts has truly made me feel like I have my life back after breast cancer. When I hug my children, my greatest cheerleaders during cancer treatment, I feel confident and happy knowing that they can feel the same mother they've always known. Now I am cancer-free, and I have a flat stomach as well an extra added bonus!
