Chinese doctors recently released some photos and video of a patient with a nose growing on his forehead. I discuss the video and nasal reconstruction in this recent video from HLN.
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.
