Breast Reconstruction Awareness Evening

Event Date: 
Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 18:30

 

Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) evening

Due to have a mastectomy? Or had a mastectomy but hesitated about reconstruction?

Five plastic surgeons, including North Shore Hospital-based Dr John Kenealy and Dr Ashwin Chunilal, will outline your options at a Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) evening, funded by Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, on Wednesday October 18th.

It’s a great opportunity to find answers to all your questions. For example, should you have an implant? If so - immediate or delayed? Will your breasts end up evenly-shaped? What about your nipples?
