I didn’t like the lack of volume in my breasts. As far as the tummy tuck goes, I have had three c-sections, so I had a lot of scar tissue — not a lot of abdominal weight, but a lot of extra skin from the stomach stretching out, from the skin stretching out from the children. Well, professionally, he is definitely on top of his trade. He knows exactly what he’s talking about. I had, you know, done a little bit more research on the internet about the processes that I was going to go through, and everything that I read matched up to everything that he explained to me by textbook. Personality-wise, as a personal person, he is the best. He’s the best, he has the best bedside manner, very friendly, very outgoing, very interested in each patient’s personal lives and how the surgery is going to affect each person. Very willing to take any phone calls at anytime. Very, very nice guy. You know, one of the biggest things — I’ve had a lot of doctors appointments in my life — and one of the biggest things that keeps you going to the same doctor is their office staff, and Dr. Mosharrafa’s staff is perfect. They are the epitome of perfection. Very, very friendly, very courteous, always on top of things. They always know the right answers, and if they don’t know they right answers, they get right on it and call you right back. Very friendly people, very nice. It was very, very nerve-wracking. Knowing that when you go in there, you know, that this is the last time you are going to wake up looking the way you are. So, you’re very anxious, but at the same time you’re very nervous, and once again Dr. Mosharrafa stepped right up to the plate and reassures you that everything is going to be fine, and he’s going to do a good job and make sure that what you’re about to go through is exactly what you want. I remember I was concerned about the size that he wanted to make my breasts because I had very large breasts before I had children. In order for me not to have a lift he was going to have to fill me up, so to speak, quite a bit, so I was concerned about that and he said, “Well you know, if you’re concerned about it, then let’s just not do it. Unless you are 100% comfortable with what we are about to go through.” He said, “I don’t want to do it. I want to make sure that you’re well aware of what the outcomes going to be.” So very reassuring. I had an IV hooked up where they, you know, you push the button every ten minutes and that kind of keeps you on top of things, you know, keeps you on top of the pain. Then when I went home, I think I was sent home with Percocet or Demerol or something. As long as you stay on top of the pain and don’t let it, you know, keep on top of pain killers and don’t let the pain get too high, the levels get too high, it’s really not that bad. I was probably on pain killers, I would say, maybe a week at the most. You know, pretty high levels to start off with, and as each day went by, you kind of taper them down and you get to the point where you only take them at night to help you sleep. I think I had, probably, on day three, I think he removed the breast and the stomach bandages. The steri-strips stay on until they fall off on their own. Then I wore like some sort of a velcro girdle for a week as well. So, probably about three or four days before the bandages were removed. I think I went 30 days — Dr. Mosharrafa had me go 30 days without wearing a bra at all. So, that was an adjustment. It was probably about two or three weeks where they finally started dropping into position where I felt comfortable that the way they were going to end up looking was what I was hoping for.

A breast cancer diagnosis is overwhelming in so many ways. There are a lot of emotions. Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and his entire staff put me at ease at every step. After surgery, I was very self conscious, and the way I was treated with each visit helped me as much as the excellent medical care. Whether it is for an elective procedure or a surgery due to illness, I cannot endorse Dr. Ali more as a physician and human.
