2017

Dr. Wayne Lee performed my reconstructions surgery following a double mastectomy and I was hoping to look similar to my natural appearance. I knew immediately after my first office visit this was the doctor for me. He was kind, empathetic, very knowledgeable and patient. I was a difficult case because an earlier surgery in the 80's resulted in leaking breast implants, placed in front of the chest wall. After the mastectomies I knew there would be very little breast tissue left to work with for the reconstruction. I was hoping for a good result. After surgery I was stunned by my appearance. I have an absolutely fantastic result! My breasts are beautiful, symmetrical and yes, very youthful, considering I'm almost 70.
