Breast Reconstruction after Mastectomy - Breast Reconstruction Specialist Radio Interview PRMA Plastic Surgery

What are the cutting edge breast reconstruction options currently available?

It was an absolute pleasure to talk to DeLeon and Travis on “DeLeon Dialogue” last night. Breast cancer survivor DeLeon and cervical cancer survivor Travis talk frankly with their guests about quality of life as cancer survivors in remission. They discuss side effects, spirituality, mastectomy, sexuality, health and wellness, self-esteem, food, exercise, relationships, and everything else in between.

Last night the one-hour show was about “breast reconstruction after mastectomy”. We managed to cover a lot of ground – we talked about the various cutting edge breast reconstruction options currently available, breast implants, the impact of radiation therapy on reconstruction, recovery from surgery, and insurance coverage for reconstruction. Please click on the link below to listen to the show (may take a little while to load):
