DIEP Flap Testimonial


Silvana first visited Dr. Lerman when she needed to have a breast implant replaced. Dr. Lerman suggested DIEP Flap reconstruction, which uses the patient's own natural tissue, rather than placing a new implant. Silvana says the results are better than she ever imagined, and she now regularly speaks to Dr. Lerman's prospective DIEP flap patients about her own positive experience.

00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.120 I am a patient of Dr. 00:00:04.150 --> 00:00:05.880 Oren Lerman. 00:00:05.910 --> 00:00:11.380 I came to him when I had to have my implant replaced. 00:00:11.410 --> 00:00:17.420 We had a conversation about what my options would be, and we opted to go a 00:00:17.450 --> 00:00:22.020 more radical route where we would do a deep flap surgical procedure. 00:00:22.050 --> 00:00:25.080 In my first experience meeting Dr. 00:00:25.100 --> 00:00:29.700 Lerman, I was a little bit apprehensive because I didn't know what to expect. 00:00:29.730 --> 00:00:35.120 But as soon as I met him, I felt immediately comfortable with him and the 00:00:35.140 --> 00:00:39.740 conversation that we had about my options for what I had come in for. 00:00:39.770 --> 00:00:44.660 The results is something that I never would have imagined. 00:00:44.680 --> 00:00:46.900 It was almost like, why didn't I do this 00:00:46.930 --> 00:00:50.540 14 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer originally? 00:00:50.560 --> 00:00:50.840 Dr. 00:00:50.870 --> 00:00:55.600 Lerman has also recommended me to other patients to talk to them, to let them know 00:00:55.630 --> 00:01:00.080 about my personal experience and to help them along through their journey and to 00:01:00.110 --> 00:01:06.740 give them some advice about the direction that they could take and not to be afraid. 00:01:06.770 --> 00:01:10.460 He is just so meticulous and his experience. 00:01:10.490 --> 00:01:12.760 Just read his background. 00:01:12.790 --> 00:01:15.880 To me, that just spoke volumes. 00:01:16.000 --> 00:01:20.020 Also, his after care, I think that's really important as well. 00:01:20.040 --> 00:01:23.640 You want to make sure that when you wake up from that surgery that you're feeling 00:01:23.640 --> 00:01:26.740 good and confident about yourself, and you want to make sure that the people who took 00:01:26.770 --> 00:01:30.490 care of you are truly going to be there for you at a drop of a hat. 00:01:30.520 --> 00:01:30.760 He was there at every step of the way.
