PRMA Plastic Surgery—Center for Advanced Breast Reconstruction is hosting its fifth annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day!
The event will be on Wednesday, October 19th from 7-9 pm at The Event Center at Plaza Lecea in San Antonio, Texas. The evening will include a presentation on breast reconstruction options by all seven of the award winning PRMA plastic surgeons. The evening will include door prizes, live entertainment, a photo booth, fun take home activities, refreshments, and he highlight of the event—a Show & Tell lounge where volunteers show attendees the real-life results of their breast reconstruction.
Breast cancer is one of most commonly diagnosed cancers in women, yet only about 30 percent of American women are informed of the option for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or lumpectomy. BRA Day is an initiative designed to promote education, awareness, and access regarding post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. BRA Day inspires women to know that life beyond breast cancer can be very fulfilling.
Dr. Oscar Ochoa, plastic surgeon with PRMA said, “As a practice that specializes in breast reconstruction, we see firsthand how reconstructive surgery after mastectomy changes lives and we believe all women with breast cancer should be well informed concerning all aspects of their treatment options, including reconstruction.”
PRMA has performed over 7,000 flap breast reconstruction procedures to date, including over 6,000 microsurgical flap procedures, making PRMA one of the leading breast reconstruction centers in the World. PRMA specializes in advanced breast reconstruction techniques that use the patient's own tissue to provide the most natural results. These techniques include the DIEP, SIEA, GAP, and TUG flap procedures.
