The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore the shape, size and appearance of the breast to make the final result look as good or sometimes better than the way the breast looked before their mastectomy.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Deutsch, MD, FACS, was interviewed on W4WN radio with host Joni Mitchell during a talk radio segment called “Ladies Who Inspire,” which was just released to the public in August. Dr. Deutsch’s patient, Karen Mason, was also interviewed. She is a breast cancer survivor and has received reconstructive surgery from Dr. Deutsch. On the radio program, Karen Mason discussed her diagnosis, battle with cancer, and her recovery, including surgery with Dr. Deutsch.
Karen Mason was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer occurring in only one-half percent of all breast cancer patients. She has had multiple surgeries and her reconstruction is almost complete. Karen credits her son with caring for her throughout her battle with cancer and subsequent surgeries. More than 254,000 women in America battle breast cancer each year, but less than one-fifth of these women opt for reconstructive surgery.
On the radio program, Dr. Deutsch discussed various reconstructive surgeries available as well as the specifics of Karen’s case. While he acknowledged that reconstructive surgery can be an overwhelming process, at times, he also commended Karen’s spirit and strong will to recover. "The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore the shape, size and appearance of the breast to make the final result look as good or sometimes better than the way the breast looked before their mastectomy" Dr. Deutsch says. Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Deutsch is one of the top plastic surgeons in Atlanta, Georgia specializing in breast reconstruction for cancer survivors, as well as a variety of elective cosmetic procedures. He is skilled and knowledgeable in a variety of breast reconstruction surgical options, using either the patient’s own tissues or implants.
