Plastic Surgery Is A Choice After Breast Cancer
Going through breast cancer and losing a portion or all of your breasts can be traumatic. A decision to undergo plastic surgery can be hard not only physically but also emotionally. As a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, I am thankful for my training, so I can help women who have battled breast cancer regain their self-esteem.
Education is very important during this journey. The better informed a woman is, the more comfortable and confident she will be with her decision. Most of my patients who are in this situation need time to process the information before making a decision. During my consultation and examination, I take time with my patients to help guide them through the available options and discuss the risks and benefits.
