October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an international health campaign designed to increase awareness of breast cancer and to raise funds that can assist in the diagnosing and treating of this common disease.

As a survivor of breast cancer, board-certified Virginia plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside is honored to work with fellow survivors, helping women impacted by this disease restore their bodies through targeted and personalized treatments.

Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day

October 16th is breast reconstruction awareness day, a day intended to raise awareness of this important aesthetic procedure. Insurance companies are required to cover the cost of breast reconstruction following mastectomy, but many women are never made aware of this option.

Dr. Gartside would be happy to meet with you free of charge to discuss your breast reconstruction options. She can also work with your surgeon prior to mastectomy to determine when the best time for your breast reconstruction would be.

Please contact our experienced Virginia breast reconstruction surgeon to schedule your consultation today. Dr. Gartside provides breast reconstruction for women impacted by cancer throughout Virginia and Washington, D.C.
