At the time I came to your office, I was unsure that I would ever feel normal again. I had undergone a bilateral mastectomy in 2013 and had expanders put in at the same time to plan for my implants. After waiting for about a year and a half, the surgery for the implants was performed. Within three months, one of my breast implants had to be removed since the skin would not hold due to the radiation I had received. My plastic surgeon told me it was possible that I might have to live with only one breast. He told me I was not handling things right and sent me for counseling. My counselor said my feelings were normal.
I decided to do some research and found you on the internet. I liked the fact that in your website you said you used my own tissue and muscle. I think what was most important was that your website said that you understood and saw my situation as a unique individual. You actually cared about my feelings and that was something I did not feel my plastic surgeon cared about.
You accepted my insurance and an appointment was set. From our first meeting I felt very comfortable with you and your staff. I felt I had been guided to your hands.
Now after two surgeries I am back to “me”. I have my body and my life back thanks to Dr. Craigie and The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction. If I had known about you and your procedure in the first place I would have been there sooner and saved myself several surgeries and disappointments. My husband and I would both like to thank you so much for being there for me.
