Following my mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation I was told that I was not a candidate for reconstruction because it would, on top of the extensive radiation, disguise a recurrence. I was very upset because I had a concave area where my breast used to be; I felt deformed. I persisted and was referred to Dr. Saltz, he did my breast reconstruction in March 1997. My experience with Dr. Saltz is the best thing that ever happened to me.
