49 year old lady from Discovery Bay who was diagnosed with right breast cancer. With a strong family history of breast cancer, she decided on having both breasts removed. This made her an excellent candidate for breast reconstruction using implants. At the time of her mastectomies, Dr. Mariotti placed expanders which were used to stretch the skin and muscle to a size that matched her body. Then, on another surgery, this temporary expander was removed and replaced with silicone gel implants. Lastly, she had Dr. Mariotti perform a reconstruction of nipples followed by tattooing to make them once again look like breasts. She has done extremely well and continues to be one of our favorite patients, not to mention sending in several friends to Dr. Mariotti for other procedures.
