Kay's Story

Age: 58

How did you find out about us?
I was treated for breast cancer, and Dr. Myckatyn was the recommended plastic surgeon (first visit, 2004; revision, 2016).

Why did you choose West County Plastic Surgeons?
For revision of breast reconstruction surgery, replacing saline with silicone implants.

What did the physician recommend?
Having subpectoral implants replaced with SRX Allergan implants (silicone) placed pectorally.

What was the timeline from consultation to surgery to recovery?
Surgery was scheduled for 3 weeks after consultation. Recovery took about 3 months, but I was able to return to work after 2 1/2 weeks.

What positive experiences did you have at every step? 
Dr. Myckatyn clearly explained the procedure, and the staff took care of insurance needs. Everyone at the hospital introduced themselves and asked if there were any questions.

How do you fell about the results of your surgery?
I am thrilled. The discomfort from previous implants is eliminated, and the swelling is gone. The implants feel very natural.

Have the results changed your life?
I am much happier and able to work with no discomfort.

If you were to recommend West County Plastic Surgeons to friends, what would you tell them about us?
I tell my friends I had an awesome recovery from cancer by finding doctors that I trust and that are easy to talk to and a well-trained staff that has the answers to medical and insurance questions so the experience is relatively stress free.
