Breast Cancer Awareness in October

Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases known to man, and it comes in many different forms. October is a month that’s been designated as the chosen time to spread awareness of breast cancer, a common form of cancer that will end up afflicting one in eight women over the course of her lifetime.

Life after a cancer diagnosis can be difficult, especially if breast cancer treatment requires the removal of one or both breasts. Luckily for breast cancer patients and survivors, plastic surgery has made leaps and bounds when it comes to reconstructing breasts in the wake of a mastectomy.

If you know a breast cancer survivor who is looking for breast reconstruction surgery, then do your friend or loved one the favor of recommending board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Luis Viñas. Dr. Viñas has helped to pioneer single-stage breast reconstruction surgery, which reduces the need for multiple surgeries and often allows patients the choice to retain their skin and nipple.

Dr. Viñas is a breast reconstruction expert who offers empathy and expertise in his plastic surgery treatments to ensure that he helps patients through this difficult time in their lives.
