Breast Reconstruction

Hi All, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in September 2013. After completing 3 months of Chemotherapy, I decided to go ahead and have a double Mastectomy. After speaking with my Breast Surgeon in 2014, he referred me to Dr Choy for a consultation. Dr Choy took the time to go through what he thought would be the best way to proceed with my operation, and in May 2014 Dr Choy completed a Bilateral Prophylactic Mastectomy +Reconstruction with Implants. Unfortunately due to various wound healing complications after surgery, both implants had to be removed in June 2014. My body clearly wasn’t reacting well. I guess it could be due to the Intensive Chemotherapy that I had and its implications on my body. I did have previous Breast Implants when diagnosed with my Breast Cancer and discovered these were PIP implants through Dr Choy after the operation.It took quite a bit of healing on my part, and after lengthy discussions with Dr Choy we both decided to proceed with a Bilateral Latissimus Dorsi Flap Breast Reconstruction with tissue expander/implant sequence in February 2015. The operation went very well this time and I am extremely pleased with the results! I know I am extremely blessed to be in the safe hands of a true professional and an excellent Specialist Plastic Surgeon like Dr Choy. Thanks Dr Choy! You’re the best.
