Breast reconstruction is all about having options.

One of our breast reconstruction patients decided to take a different path when it came time for nipple reconstruction.

Dr. Bolitho is the type of person who you feel absolutely comfortable with; and, when it came time to decide on nipple reconstruction I did a lot of research regarding what would be best for me,” Christina said. “After a lot of consideration, I approached Dr. Bolitho about 3-D nipple tattoos that were performed by a top-notch artist who currently works at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery in New Orleans and Dr. Bolitho gave me the green light.”

Christina, 47, who had a bilateral mastectomy in 2011, completed her breast reconstruction journey in 2013 with with her 3-D nipple tattoos. She had silicone gel-filled implants as part of her reconstruction procedure.

And she is thrilled with the reconstruction results and her 3-D nipple tattoos.

“Many people ask me whether or not it was painful. I had never had a tattoo before so I really didn’t know what to expect,” she said. Christina added, “My left side was virtually painless, but the right side, had a bit of discomfort.”

Meyers told Christina that not many women felt much pain because the reconstruction area often feels numb. In under an hour, the tattoos were completed.

Below is a CNN clip of Vinnie Meyers who lives in Maryland but frequently travels to New Orleans to help women at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery.

The Dr. Bolitho Team Garners Positive Feedback

Dr. Bolitho
Dr. Bolitho frequently hears kind patient feedback when it comes to his front and back office staff.

When he chose his team, Dr. Bolitho shared, a great deal of it had to do with instinct coupled with their training.

“I always like to think that someone can be trained up to a level of clinical proficiency provided that they have the empathic nature to do a job,” Bolitho said. He added, “I would rather have that type of team member, than someone let’s say, who is highly trained but lacks that type of character who cannot relate well to patients.”

For Dr. Bolitho, it has always been more important to him to bring a team member onboard who conveyed special human characteristics when interacting with patients.

While Dr. Bolitho is well known for an array of different cosmetic surgical procedures, he also performs many breast reconstruction surgeries for women who have lost a breast either from a mastectomy or other condition. So having a compassionate medical team at his practice was imperative.

For Dr. Bolitho’s office, every day is a new day to treat their patients with the genuine medical care they deserve.

Dr. Bolitho and his staff recently hosted a thoughtful soiree in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Their patients, undergoing or who had undergone breast cancer reconstruction, enjoyed an evening of pampering, great conversation, live music, savories and more.

As the women arrived, many signed up for complimentary massages and manicures. When the activity began to settle down, the energy peaked once again for the opportunity drawings portion of the party.

Many guests walked away with prizes. A handful of “must-haves” included beauty products, beauty services, Botox and Juvederm treatments, a Latisse giveaway, restaurant gift certificates, and water sport adventures.

The evening was a memorable one and the ladies thanked Dr. Bolitho and his kind staff for such a generous gesture.

The results are in. Dr. Glynn Bolitho, a highly regarded and respected board certified plastic surgeon in San Diego, was chosen as one of San Diego Magazines’ Top Docs of 2012.

Bolitho is honored with the recognition. And above all, his staff and patients are thrilled with the wonderful news.

Bolitho is known for his incomparable surgical skill and talent. Moreover, his patients are appreciative of his outstanding bedside manner which is indeed a true welcome in the world of medicine.

This year, Bolitho is one of 537 physicians being acknowledged for his excellent work by his peers.

A blurb in this special edition reads, “The San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS), working collaboratively with San Diego Magazine for nine years now, has continued and will continue to evolve our process for identifying those board-certified physicians within the county who are held in highest regard by their peers.”

In regard to the voting protocol, it reads, “Any board-certified physician in San Diego may vote for any board-certified doctors who practice within San Diego County to whom they would refer their patients and family members. Recognizing that physicians often know more about those in other specialties to whom we refer our patients, SDCMS has evolved our process from allowing physicians to vote only within their specialties, to allowing them to vote across specialties.”
