After having a bilateral mastectomy, I was looking for options for reconstructive surgery. I was told about the DIEP Flap procedure. When I met with Dr Jeremy Williams and visited with him about the procedure, I was totally convinced for many reasons, the DIEP Flap was the best way for me to have breasts again. When Chemotherapy and Radiation were finished and I had time to heal, both physically and emotionally, my DIEP Flap was scheduled. It is a very long surgery. I’m not going to lie to you, it’s a very big deal. They tummy tuck part of it was sore.

After finishing with the surgery, I thought, I don’t need nipples. I was wrong. I needed them to change my flaps, to breasts. When it was time, I also had the nipples tattooed. I’m so glad I did. Now I feel complete. I feel my life can go on and the nightmare is truly behind me.

I would also like to add, Dr Williams and the staff at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery are the best. They are all very professional and caring.
