Making the decision to prophylactically remove your breasts at 34 is not an easy one to make. If you are like me, it requires a lot of work and even more careful deliberation and planning. There is research on top of research: researching statistics behind the decision, procedures, methods, and finally researching physicians. The later is the hardest part. I do not believe that all providers are created equal and it is oddly easier to research an electric toothbrush than it is a plastic surgeon. Now, after surgery, I am absolutely elated that I decided to put my medical faith in Dr. Zenn. He gave me more options for reconstruction than any other doctor in North Carolina. Even better than promises, he delivered. I am in utter disbelief regarding how well I healed and how truly amazing my result are.
I had bilateral mastectomies due to BRACA 1 gene mutation. Dr. Zenn performed immediate skin and nipple sparing breast reconstruction with silicone implants. My breasts look better now than they did before the surgery. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Zenn. He is talented, kind and compassionate. I would recommend him to anyone including my own daughter.
