The Center for Restorative Breast Surgery is proud to honor the second annual National Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day. In our support we endeavor to promote the importance of this issue and ensure that all breast cancer patients are fully informed of their options and supported by a team of medical professionals working together before they begin treatment. Not only are some women never shown breast reconstruction surgery results, but previous research shows 7 out of 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer are never even told about their breast reconstruction options. We have found the continual lack of awareness patients have regarding their rights and options for breast reconstruction can have devastating results. National Breast Reconstruction Day is an opportunity for us to educate and empower all women. The effects of breast reconstruction have the capacity to transcend the surgical techniques, providing women the final link in the circle of treatment, a return to wholeness, and an overall sense of recovery.
The Center for Restorative Breast Surgery was established to serve as a dedicated resource for women seeking the most advanced methods of breast reconstruction utilizing the body’s own tissue.
