DIEP Flap Testimonial

Dear Dr. Vasile,

This short note is a quick thank you for being a great doctor and excellent at what you do. It has been a couple of years since we first met in the summer of 2009 when I was newly diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer was unexpectedly found when I had a breast reduction. I needed a mastectomy, and was not happy with the idea of an implant in my body.

When I was presented options for reconstruction, I immediately knew that I wanted my own tissue used, but did not want my rectus abdominis muscles removed. I am an active woman and need to care for my family. My breast surgeon recommended you because I wanted my reconstructed breast to match my other breast as much as possible.

Everything came out great with my DIEP flap breast reconstruction surgery, nipple reconstruction, breast lift, and abdominal "contouring". I am really happy with the way my reconstructed breast feels so natural and matches my other breast. It is soft and perkier than before and I have no complaints! I am glad I chose you because I have no regrets about any aspect of  my care or final result. You are excellent and really passionate about your job. I recommend you to everyone because I know that you are the best.

Sincerely,
Maureen
