I saw that there are many patient recommendations for Dr. Mitch Brown, Toronto, but they are for breast augmentations rather than breast reconstruction. Does anyone know of any people who have had breast reconstruction with him? Are there any recommendations for him for breast reconstruction?

Hi BernieV - Welcome to this site!!!! I've been away toooooo long. My circumstances were somewhat different from yours. However, I do know that Dr. Rice has performed on another friend of mine (not from this site) and everything went as well as it can be. She was hoping to go larger with the implant but risked having complications such as Marilyn (on this site).
It's true that a radiated breast MAY not heal well. I had 30 treatments of radiation (after chemo) and the scar from the implant under the breast healed perfectly but the Z-Plasty scar on the left side of my breast did not but it's so small that it's not a huge deal.
Your breast will never look the same but it sure increases comfort and confidence instead of a prosthesis - at least it did for ME - Everyone is different!. I too saw Dr. Brown and I know he used to do a lot of reconstruction but seems to be moving away from it.
Anyway, good luck.
Let us know if we can help in any way.

Linda
