Lisa Jey Davis and plastic reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Lisa Cassileth, join KTLA live to discuss Lisa's decision to remove her breasts and ovaries while simultaneously receiving reconstructive surgery to replace both breasts as a preventative measure against cancer.
Two years ago, Lisa Jey Davis lost her 51 year old sister to ovarian cancer. Last year, Lisa found out she was genetically disposed to not only ovarian cancer, but also breast cancer and that's when lisa sprang into action. Lisa decided to take some pretty drastic measures to prevent cancer in her body by removing both the ovaries and breasts. While at the same time of getting the double mastectomy, Lisa had reconstruction surgery to replace her breasts.
