BRA Day 2016 Is Only One Month Away!
By: Courtney Floyd
BRA Day is officially one month away! Join us October 19th for our annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day celebration! Many women who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy are not aware of the reconstruction options available to them. With the help of physicians and organizations nationwide, Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day helps create a better understanding of reconstruction choices.
Quick Breast Reconstruction Facts:
- Less than a quarter (23%) of women know the wide range of breast reconstruction options available.
- Only 22% of women are familiar with the quality of outcomes that can be expected.
- Only 19% of women understand that the timing of their treatment for breast cancer and the timing of their decision to undergo reconstruction greatly impacts their options and results.
PRMA surgeon Dr. Oscar Ochoa says knowing all options before having a mastectomy or lumpectomy is important and should be discuss with all patients. “Patients have the right to be informed of all their options,” says Dr. Ochoa.
“Our hope is that by having events like BRA Day, we will be able to help breast cancer patients make more informed decisions regarding treatment and reconstructive options.”
To date PRMA Plastic Surgery has performed over 7000 breast reconstruction surgeries for patients around the globe. Our surgeons specialize in DIEP flap, SIEA flap, GAP flap, TUG flap, fat grafting and Alloderm direct to implant procedures.
