“After I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I made an appointment with Dr. Schmid to get reconstruction. When I was in his office talking to him, I started to cry. He stopped what he was doing and came over and hugged me, and so did his nurse, Michelle. Dr. Schmid made me feel comfortable and less scared. He always took the time to answer any questions that I may have had. Dr. Schmid is a caring, kind, compassionate doctor. He made me feel comfortable through the entire reconstruction process.”

“In 2009, I had Breast Cancer and had a Double mastectomy with reconstruction. I had an Implant on one side, and on my radiated side, I had a Latissimus Flap with small implant. There was always a difference in size and feel to the breast. I later developed contracture, and the implant shifted. I knew I did not want another implant, as I always felt that I was wearing an iron bra. I researched and found out about the DIEP Flap where they take your stomach fat and make a breast out of it…. I wanted to have a normal feeling breast and to be able to wear clothes again without worrying about hiding my misplaced, uncomfortable breast. The surgery took 10 hours, and I was in ICU for 2 days to make sure that the blood flow was going to the tissue. Dr. Schmid and his team checked on me, and after 4 days, I was discharged…. Though it is only 6 weeks after surgery, and I am still recovering, I now feel put back together for the first time in 6 years. My breasts look and feel like real breasts. I can now wear clothes without having to camouflage myself, plus I have the added benefit of a flatter tummy. Dr. Schmid did a great job! Dr. Schmid is a friendly man that seems to listen to your concerns. He told me what I could expect from my results, and also what he could not promise me. He answered all my questions and put my husband and I at ease from the first appointment. I recommend him to anyone considering a DIEP Flap reconstruction.”
