Corrective Breast Reconstruction: Caren's Story

Oct 4, 2021

“I wanted a B cup and I woke up with a D cup.” After a breast cancer diagnosis, Caren underwent a double mastectomy with implant reconstruction. Complications and additional surgeries left her disfigured, and impacted her ability to exercise, date, and feel good about herself. Then, she found Dr. Frank DellaCroce at the New Orleans-based Center for Restorative Breast Surgery, who performed a corrective procedure called hybrid stacked DIEP/SGAP breast reconstruction. “I’m eternally grateful to the breast center, and I love Dr. DellaCroce. They gave me back my life.”
