#KeepTheNipple! If you are undergoing mastectomy and breast reconstruction, you do not have to lose your nipple. For more info:

When Alyssa was diagnosed with breast cancer (DCIS specifically), she met with several well regarded surgeons all of whom gave her one option: a traditional, multi-surgery breast reconstruction. She was at her wits end, because this meant a lengthy and painful procedure and life without breasts for months as her tissue expanders were inflated. She saw no other choice, so she scheduled her mastectomy.

Less than a week before her scheduled surgery, Alyssa's friend saw Dr. Cassileth on Doctor Drew talking about her one stage procedure. This allows breasts to be reconstructed at the same time as mastectomy -- so that patients can wake up from surgery with beautiful breasts intact.

Despite living over 2700 miles away from Los Angeles, in the far reaches of Alaska, Alyssa called right away to schedule an appointment in hopes that she would be a candidate for this one-step breast reconstruction procedure.

When Alyssa arrived at Dr Cassileth's office in Beverly Hills, she felt comfortable right away with the doctor and her staff. She canceled her other surgery and scheduled to have the Cassileth one-stage breast reconstruction procedure. Today she is healthy and thrilled with her new breasts.

This is her journey.

"Women need to be their own advocate if they don't have anyone else to help them. I want women to demand more options if they qualify and Lisa's technique should be among the standard of care offered to qualifying candidates."
- Alyssa
