Many women aren’t aware of the options available for breast reconstruction. Our plastic surgeons are at the forefront of innovation in breast reconstruction, performing 3D microsurgery, robotic mastectomy and reconstruction, lymphatic reconstruction—as well as pioneering work to enhance recovery after breast reconstruction. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re hosting events to empower women in their decision-making process. Please join us to learn about the new choices women have to feel whole again after breast surgery. You will have the opportunity to: – Hear from an expert panel of plastic surgeons specializing in advanced breast reconstruction techniques– Learn what considerations are important in making choices about breast reconstruction– Meet with past breast reconstruction patients to hear their stories and see their results– Have your questions answered by our experts and real patients The panel session will be followed by Q&A and a Show and Tell.
