PRMA Plastic Surgery Hosts BRA Day 2019
By: Courtney Floyd
We are excited to host this year’s San Antonio Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day event.
The event will be help on Wednesday, October 16th at 6pm at Plaza Lecea in the medical center. The event will include a breast reconstruction educational presentation by a PRMA board-certified plastic surgeon, door prizes, a show and tell room, live entertainment, refreshments and much more.
BRA Day is recognized nationwide and is designed to promote education, awareness, and access to all breast reconstruction options following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. BRA Day inspires women and men to know that life beyond breast cancer can be very fulfilling.
Informing patients of their reconstruction options before or at the time of diagnosis is critically important to improving life after breast cancer. Even if a patient decides against breast reconstruction, it is still important for patients to discuss all their options with a surgeon to ensure they are making an informed choice.
BRA Day is collaboration between the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Plastic Surgery Foundation, breast centers, nurse navigators, corporate partners, and breast cancer support groups.
We are honored to have amazing representatives from our local breast cancer support organizations participate as well. Participants can connect with:
Overcomers: Daughters of the King of Kings

The Pink Boutique A Division of Bexar Care Home Medical Equipment
