Gina's Story

Why did you choose West County Plastic Surgeons?
I was referred to West County Plastic Surgeons by Dr. Julie Margenthaler. She recommended breast reconstruction.

What was the timeline from consultation to surgery to recovery?
About a year. My situation was a little different!!

What positive experiences did you have at every step?
My entire experience with the office has been positive. 

How do you feel about the results of your surgery?
The results are AMAZING!!

Have the results changed your life?
Being diagnosed at age 39 with breast cancer was terrifying. Making the decision to have a double mastectomy was equally terrifying, although I knew in my heart, I was making the right choice for me and my circumstances. But, understandably, I was nervous how I would look and feel about my body and breasts after the reconstructive surgeries. The moment I met Dr. Marissa Tenenbaum my fears were put to rest. Her kindness and confidence immediately put me at ease.  She explained things to me and gave me options I didn’t think I had. My results have been amazing – more than I could have hoped for. Dr. Tenenbaum is extremely skilled at what she does and treats you with respect and kindness while doing it!!! And to top it off, her nurses and office staff are wonderful. Thank you!!!   

If you were to recommend West County Plastic Surgeons to friends, what would you tell them about us?
They are professional, kind and have always made me feel welcome. I could not have asked for a better doctor and team of people to help me through a difficult time in my life.
