Happy BRA Day!

So what is BRA Day?  It’s short for “Breast Reconstruction Awareness” Day.  As a plastic surgeon, I find it surprising that there are a lot of women who undergo mastectomy and lumpectomy for breast cancer and are never given their various options for breast reconstruction.  So today there are events being held in 25 countries throughout the world as an attempt to bring awareness to the fact that women have options in breast cancer reconstruction.  In fact, the Federal government even passed  legislation years ago that requires health insurance companies to pay for breast reconstruction not only on the affected breast, but on the unaffected breast for purposes of symmetry.
