Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day (BRA Day) is Wednesday, October 21st. This initiative is intended to promote education, awareness, and access to post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. As a breast cancer survivor and a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Roberta Gartside strongly supports BRA Day and encourages all women to get involved.
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are looking into post-cancer breast reconstruction, please call Dr. Gartside at 703-742-8004 today to discuss your needs and learn more about your options.
Mammograms Save Lives
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. More than 40,000 women are killed by this disease every year. The most effective ways to detect cancer early and ensure life-saving treatment is through daily self-examinations and yearly mammograms after the age of 45.
This October, commit to your long-term health by scheduling a mammogram. While a diagnosis of cancer can be frightening, chances of survival are very high addressed early on.
If you are looking for a breast reconstruction surgeon in Reston or McLean, please contact New Image Plastic Surgery Associates to schedule a consultation today. Dr. Gartside serves cancer survivors living throughout Virginia and Washington, DC.
