photo248It is estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer at some point in their life. With this striking statistic, the importance of early detection is especially apparent. This is why every year, October is dedicated to breast cancer awareness, reminding women to take precautionary steps to protect their health. While the disease cannot be prevented, knowing how to detect abnormalities and when to get screened can help significantly help in the fight against breast cancer.

At Richmond Aesthetic Surgery, we have treated numerous breast cancer survivors with breast reconstruction, and it is our honor to help restore not only a woman’s appearance but also their sense of femininity. We recognize that breast cancer takes a major emotional and physical toll on those involved. Because of this, we do our best to provide a variety of surgical reconstruction options in a caring environment to help patients feel comfortable and at home.

If you would like to learn about our breast reconstruction treatments, we encourage you to schedule a consultation our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Zemmel. You can also view our breast reconstruction gallery for before-and-after pictures of our patients, as well as check back to our blog soon for more details about our reconstructive options.
