When my yearly mammogram revealed enlarging   microcalcifications I underwent a breast biopsy which, sure enough, showed breast cancer. Dr. Shienbaum had performed an excellent breast augmentation years ago and I was extremely pleased with the results, so I decided to consult with him. He spent a great deal of time with me explaining my many treatment options especially in regard to my existing breast implants. We finally settled on a skin sparing mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction. Dr. Shienbaum was nice enough to arrange a meeting with general surgeon who would be performing the mastectomy and personally coordinated everything needed for my entire. I was totally devastated by the thought of having a mastectomy since there is no history of breast cancer in my family and I feel very fortunate in having Dr. Shienbaums guidance and years of experience. When I arrived home after the surgery I was delighted to find that instead of a flat mastectomy scar there was already a well shaped breast mound.. Several weeks later I returned to have my permanent  silicone implant and a Breast Lift on the opposite breast. What a wonderful outcome - in a bra you would never be able to tell I had any surgery at all! I am so very, very grateful to Dr. Shienbaum for his support throughout this past year with all my surgeries. I am truly delighted and amazed with the outcome of my breast reconstruction and the appearance of both my breasts... I would highly recommend Dr. Shienbaum to anyone.
