02/11/2020

Lynda Capofacelo, Pilates Instructor/Studio Owner & Breast Cancer Survivor: My diagnosis was invasive ductal carcinoma in November 2017. “When I was first diagnosed, I was very afraid; of treatment, that I would need a mastectomy, that I was going to not look or feel like myself afterwards, and afraid of chemotherapy, radiation, and until I met Dr Kaufman, the surgery.”

“I chose Dr Kaufman because he was an expert in both breast oncological and plastic surgery which meant I didn’t have to consult with two separate doctors and make sure they were both communicating and on the same page, and I would have far less appointments”

“I can’t tell you how deeply relieved I felt once I met with Dr K – I was done worrying; I was happy! He made me feel comfortable immediately. He sat down across from me and explained what I had in a way that I could understand, pulling down his medical books to show me photos…In addition to the medical explanation, he showed me past patients results (you sign optional consent for that) in women the same size and diagnosis as me, and he explained to me what the outcome would be because my main concern, like many women that go through this, is the removal of the tumors, but also how you’re going to look and feel afterwards. When I was shown the photos of the patients that have similar physiques and had the same surgery that I needed, I realized oh, my breasts are actually going to look really GOOD afterwards and I’ll be cancer free.”

“After the surgery he happily the tumors came away cleanly. I was happy because as with his other patients, I felt and looked great! He created a wonderful natural symmetrical aesthetic with a lift on both sides. When you have Dr Kaufman you have the best of both worlds, someone to remove the cancer, but also an artful craftsman to make you feel like yourself or even better afterwards so you don’t feel like you lost anything.”

Have you been performing a monthly breast self-exam? Do you know how to perform it properly? Last week's post reminded women to check their breasts monthly, but do you know how to throughly and correctly check your breasts? This diagram very well displays how - be sure to go through every pattern and feel for any lumps or changes. A cinical exam by a doctor should be performed anually and women over 40 should discuss mammograms annually with their doctors as well. Breast checks should start with onset of me**es.
.
Using the pads of your fingers feel around your breasts in the patters above, Note any changes in appearance, texture, feel, or ni**le discharge. Lumps can often be benign but if you find one see your health care provider immediately.

Kim Kuiber, Breast Cancer Warrior, Ductal carcinoma 2009, precancerous recurrence 2017 same breast, double mastectomy with reconstruction, recounts her experience with Dr. Kaufman @GJKplastics:
.
“My first Impression meeting with Dr Kaufman was that within five minutes I wanted him to be my surgeon. He made me feel so comfortable; he was awesome - he just really listened to me; he let me cry, and he sat next to me, across from me, but not at his desk. He was really caring and friendly and open and comforted me when I was afraid. He was so calming and soothing. He really cares about how we look and feel. He truly cared about the outcome in terms of the mastectomy as well as the resulting aesthetic and how I'd look so I went with fear and came out confident, and felt like he really cared about me as a person too.”
.
“Because the cancer had returned and I didn't want to deal with or risk that again, I wanted a double mastectomy and he agreed to that, so that's what I did, and then he did a reconstruction. Dr Kaufman did a phenomenal job of the reconstruction and then I had implants put in and so far everything is great! looking good! My results are awesome. I would absolutely recommend him to others and have sent co-workers to him already. “

Have you been consistently doing your self breast exam every month? comment with a raised hand emoji 🙌 if so, and if you have other women friends and family that you care about, tag them also in the comments.

A good rule of thumb is to perform this 2-3 days after your period every month if you are still menstruating. Otherwise mark your calendar - this along with your annual exam with your doctor can help catch breast cancer early and allow for much easier effective treatment. Dr Kaufman if @GJKPlastics recommends self care once a month, and after 40 years of age, annual checkup and mammogram - talk with your doctor if you are 40 years or older about screenings.
