I have had a bilateral radical mastectomy several years ago. I have had several reconstructions and none of them turned out well. After a month, my breasts became hard and distorted. A couple months ago, I started a reconstruction with Dr. Newman. My breasts are still a good shape and a good size. He treats his work like a true artist. He explains things very well and always takes the time to answer any question that I may have. I would strongly recommend this general surgeon and reconstructive surgeon to anyone.
