Denver Breast Reconstruction for Cancer Survivors

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado

 

Nearly 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Fortunately, many of these women will survive the disease thanks to surgical intervention such as a mastectomy.
Mastectomy is undoubtedly deserving of high praise. It has, after all, saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of women. However, the physical and emotional impacts of a mastectomy can, and do, last a lifetime.
The board-certified Denver plastic surgeons at Grossman Plastic Surgery are pleased to offer breast reconstruction to cancer survivors. Our Denver breast reconstruction surgeons can even work with your physician, often performing reconstruction at the same time as your mastectomy. All of your options will be discussed during your breast reconstruction consultation.
Knowing Your Rights
Breast reconstruction can restore symmetry and balance to your chest. It can help you look and feel more confident and self-assured, and it is your right as a breast cancer survivor. In fact, Congress has passed a law requiring insurance companies to cover the cost of breast reconstruction following mastectomy, often making the entire process free of charge to the patient.
Despite this being your right, a recent survey conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that 70 percent of breast cancer survivors were unaware that breast reconstruction was even an option. Our Denver breast reconstruction surgeons strongly support your right to every procedure that can help you overcome your battle with cancer. During your initial consultation we will be happy to discuss your options and help you determine if breast reconstruction is right for you.
If you live in or around Denver, Colorado and have had or are scheduled to have a mastectomy, please contact Grossman Plastic Surgery to schedule a free breast reconstruction consultation today.
