Join a specialist team of surgeons and nurses from Counties Manukau DHB to learn about your options for reconstruction. You’ll hear about the different surgeries and the best timing for these, as well as what to expect from your recovery.

Following the presentations, Breast Cancer Foundation NZ invites you for refreshments and to join other participants, their breast nurses and staff from Counties Manukau to ask any questions you may have.

What kind of surgery is right for me? When should I have breast reconstruction? What about my other breast?
