Dr. Cody corrected a previous poor reconstruction from my mastectomy that I had done with another doctor. My new breast is so much improved and actually feels like it's a natural part of my body. He removed the cold, lumpy implant and used my body to create my new breast. Now I have two breast that are similar in size and shape. His bedside manner is concerned and empathetic while maintaining an expertise and confidence.

I met Dr.Cody ib Moreno Valley in 2012. He and Dr.Ludi did my Double Mastectomy. Dr. Cody preformed my reconstructive surgeries. My husband and myself were impressed every time we saw him.....which was quite often due to my body didn't do well because I had been a smoker. His bedside manner was excellent! He is very professional and a extremely talented surgeon! I highly recommend Dr.Derek Cody! Thank you Dr.Cody my new breast look awesome! Vanessa P. Butler
