breast cancer surgeon Dr. Lisa CassilethLisa B. Cassileth, MD, FACS

Dr. Cassileth is committed to improving the quality of life for breast cancer patients by helping them to attain beautiful natural-looking breasts that reflect their intrinsic femininity.

Her signature One-Step Breast Reconstruction method is quickly becoming the standard of care for breast cancer patients throughout the country. This procedure eliminates the need for multiple surgeries for mastectomy patients and allows women to wake from surgery with intact breasts. This also eliminates much of the stress that breast cancer patients undergo, by lessening the sense of loss that can occur with breast reconstruction surgery. As a top breast cancer surgeon in Los Angeles, she understands how important it is for women to look and feel ‘normal’ after undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

She has gained renown for her accomplishments in the field of breast reconstruction revision (repair of earlier reconstruction surgeries which have failed due to cancer treatments or other causes). She’s considered one of the top breast cancer surgeons available. As one of her grateful patients wrote, “The path from breast cancer diagnosis to reconstruction is a devastating journey. Your guidance and compassion through the process up to and including maxopexy is only surpassed by your surgical skills. I am forever grateful. Thank you.”

Dr. Cassileth lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their three children.
