Sherri'S STORY

Breast Reconstruction

I went to Dr. Terry Myckatyn for breast reconstruction following a bilateral mastectomy due to breast cancer. Dr. Myckatyn recommended an initial surgery to place expanders, followed by saline fills at a level and at intervals that I was comfortable with, and ending with newly available implants that were more naturally shaped and had little to no wrinkling. A coworker who had post-mastectomy reconstruction performed by Dr. Myckatyn was very happy with her results and encouraged me to visit with him. My initial surgery was in August and second was in April. I was amazed through the whole process. The entire office, especially Marilyn and Dr. Myckatyn, were so personable. It was so impressive that someone with their expertise could be so personable. They always had time for my questions and concerns and made me feel special. It was so comforting to know I was in the hands of the best. Words cannot express how happy I am with the results. I never imagined that I would look and feel this good and natural after my mastectomy. I have no words for how this changed my life. After my mastectomy, I would not even undress in front of my husband. The reconstruction has not only restored my self-confidence, but it has improved it to a level higher than pre-cancer life. I would (and do) tell people that it gives you peace of mind to know you are in the hands of the best in the nation. I have also heard such horror stories from other survivors and insist to them that reconstruction does not have to be a horrible experience, because I achieved beautiful results with very little discomfort.
