My Life is Changed – Breast Reconstruction

A patient tells the story of how breast reconstruction changed her life.


"After the agonizing decision to look into breast reconstruction, I was a bit discouraged after speaking with a few Plastic Surgeons in the surrounding area. I never had the degree of comfort I felt was necessary to go through such an arduous process.

My life changed the moment I met Dr. Lester Yen. I found Dr. Yen to be very pleasant, honest, and at the top of his profession. He was knowledgeable and able to explain on my level. He listened and understood my frustrations, as well as my concerns. He explained every procedure, every option, and did not fill me full of false hopes and expectations.

The outcome has been more than I ever could have hoped for or imagined. I can now look at myself in the mirror and see a woman, not the Bride of Frankenstein.

Dr. Yen, has an excellent staff supporting him. Joni, Dr. Yen’s surgical nurse, was always diligent, always kind, warm, and had a way of putting you at ease. Joyce, the always smiling, efficient, caring front office personnel and Carol, whose warmth and finishing touches are the ultimate!

Without these four special and gifted people, I would not be the woman I am today. I will always be eternally grateful that I made that office visit."
