In August 2011, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was devastated! I had mammograms yearly, self examinations weekly, without ever having felt any abnormalities. I was subjected to numerous and varied tests that showed there were calcifications in both my left and right breast. The beginning stages of cancer showed in the right breast, but not the left. Face with the chance of cancer developing in my left breast, with the support of my husband I decided to have a double mastectomy.

My surgical oncologist recommended Dr. Lee as my reconstructive plastic surgeon. All I can say to that is “Thank God for Dr. Lee.”

Dr. Lee is a warm, caring, and patient doctor. He takes time to explain the process of reconstructive surgery and the potential problems and benefits. He let me know that I am more than my breasts and it’s me as a person that defines me, not my breasts. Although nothing can replace God’s work, Dr. Lee provided me with a great replacement. Because of his fine artful work, I’m not self-conscious or depressed. One of the best things about his work is the new pair won’t sage and my husband can’t quite smiling.
