My Reconstructive Surgeon

After I healed, I searched for the best reconstruction surgeon in the region. I found Dr. Franklyn Elliott. He’s the one who created the Twins from the deformed mess that was my chest. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. They gave me back my life.

If you are in the southeast and need reconstruction, I urge you to contact Doctor Elliott’s office. Suzanne is his personal secretary and Patti Bergley has been his PA for basically ever.

To contact Dr. Elliott’s office:

ph: 404 – 256 – 1311 (ask for Suzanne in Dr. Elliott’s office)

email: atlantaplastic@atlplastic.com

When you talk to Suzanne, mention that Maria Myrback (that’s me) referred you. I don’t get anything for the referral, but they know me at the office and they know this blog.

    Im wondering if a trip to meet this dr would be a smart thing to do. I will wait until wound vac is off.
    however is there anyway to post and find a dr in Texas , Dallas or anywhere that can do as wonderful as what you were able to do ,
    are you able to tell me the costs? I no longer have health insurance and until I can get a judgement or settlement ,Im really stuck.

      Jill;

      Call Suzanne at Dr. Elliott’s office (404 – 256 – 1311) and tell her about your situation, including the gory details about having the implant pulled out through the hole. Let her know you found out about them through Maria Myrback (I don’t get paid or anything but they know me at the office and they know about Boobcast). See if she or Dr. Elliott know of someone really good there in Texas who can help. Dr. Elliott knows everybody.

      I’ll email her and let her know you’ll be contacting her. Let me know how it goes.

    Hi
    I’m in the uk so don’t know if you could advise of anyone here.
    I had a mastectomy and during surgery had an implant inserted. It started immediatly going purple/black and became very swollen. After 5 days I was taken back to theatre and the implant was taken out, it was so bad that the skin wouldn’t close and I needed a skin graft. I was told that the implant they put in was probably too big. ( I had a mastectomy the prevoious year on the other breast but had an expander put in to stretch the skin, after 6 months I got silicone implants inserted into both breast. When I found the lump on the other breast and had to have another mastectomy the surgeon said he would try and avoid putting in an expander as the skin should have already stretched from the silicone implant 3 months ago, so it should just be a case of doing the mastectomy and replacing the implant with the same sized one.) Now I’m totally flat chested with a horrible skin graft as I only had surgery 2 weeks ago I just don’t know where to turn.
