Donna: A New Body after Breast Reconstruction

Donna talks about her breast reconstruction

At the age of 35, and no history in my family, when I was told I had breast cancer I cried and thought “why me?”–which I’m sure everyone thinks.  Then I knew I couldn’t change what was happening to me so I went forward with a positive attitude to do what needed to be done and get back to the life I knew.  The surgery I elected was a double mastectomy with a TRAM procedure.  I had always wanted a tummy tuck, but this wasn’t the way I thought I would get it!  Recovery was hard, but now I love my new body!  The staff and doctors at Artisan Plastic surgery have been wonderful.
