High did my breast reconstruction following mastectomy. I dont recommend him for direct to implant reconstruction for 2 reasons; he cuts the muscle (did not tell me ahead) and doesnt have expertise to deal with the large size pocket typically left by mastectomy surgeon. I ended up with breast shapes 2-3 sizes larger even though he told me he would be able to place implants that would be the same size as my natural breasts. He also missed the beginning stage of cellulitis, sent me to Fam Prac Phy

Dr. High & his staff have taken great care of me after my double mastectomy. I feel whole again and very happy with my new, natural looking breast.
