Keeping Babies Sun Safe

By: | Tags: , , ,

Mom bubbles

It is estimated that roughly 5 million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every year. These are staggering numbers, and this data remains a reminder of the importance of staying sun safe. Plastic surgeons are proponents of skin safety since they perform reconstructive surgery on skin cancer patients requiring skilled procedures, particularly on the face. Firsthand, they know how detrimental ultraviolet ray exposure can be.

Recently the American Academy of Dermatology’s Annual Meeting in New York revealed some disconcerting news from a study. Moms and dads are diligent in keeping their babies safe with car seats and “childproofing” the home, but when outdoors, this diligence falls short with their solar protection.

This year board-certified dermatologist Dr. Keyvan Nouri and fellow researchers at the University of Miami utilized a survey including 95 parents regarding skin safe practices for their babies. The study revealed that less than 15 percent were on point with the Academy’s sun safety practices for babies.

The survey also revealed the following statistics:

  • A total of 83% of parents sought shade for their infants.
  • A total of 43% of parents dressed their baby in wide-brimmed hats.
  • A total of 40% of parents routinely dressed their baby in sun protective clothing (i.e., long-sleeved shirts and pants).
  • A total of 29% of parents admitted to using sunscreen on their baby who was younger than 6 months old.
  • One-third of the parents admitted to allowing their infant to develop a sun tolerance with routine outdoor time.
  • A total of 12% of parents admitted that their infants had tanned skin whereas 3% admitted that their infant succumbed to a sunburn

Dr. Nouri said in the report, “Some parents may think they’re helping their children by exposing them to the sun, but actually, the opposite is true. Unprotected sun exposure can damage the skin and lead to skin cancer.”

The annual meeting underscored that parents are not taking the “proper steps” to shield their babies from ultraviolet rays.

Raising awareness is incredibly important for all families.

In Science Daily, the report highlighted while ultraviolet radiation is the leading cause of skin cancer, it is indeed the most avoidable. Unprotected solar exposure can cause the following:

  • Sunburns
  • Skin cancer
  • Premature skin aging

And childhood exposure can trigger the above. This news warrants a new skin care protocol for parents. The tips the Academy conveyed include the following:

  • When possible, keep babies 6 months old and younger away from the sun.
  • When outdoors, keep babies in shady areas.
  • On warm days and when outdoors, dress babies in lightweight long-sleeved shirts and pants.
  • Place a wide-brimmed hat on babies to help block out UV rays.

The study went on to say that, “Sunscreen use should be avoided if possible in children younger than 6 months.” It continued, “Parents of infants and toddlers 6 months and older may apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to their children’s exposed skin; sunscreens containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide are most appropriate for the sensitive skin of infants and toddlers.”

Although parents apply sunscreen, the American Academy of Dermatology still advises to keep children sun safe in the shade and having them wear clothing that is sun-protective. Healthy skin care practices are critical for infants, children, teenagers and adults of all ages.

Breast Reduction Surgery Brought Into The Spotlight

By: | Tags: , ,

Woman  federico stevanin

Recently, Hollywood celebrity Ariel Winter of television sitcom Modern Family decided to publicly announce her reduction mammoplasty also referred to as breast reduction surgery. Winter was one of many women who suffer with the daily discomfort due to excess weight on their chests.

While most women undergo this surgery at 18 years of age and over, Winter, 17, had the surgery during the early part of summer. The surgery transformed her from a bra cup which was a size 32F to 34D.

She recently told a People magazine reporter, “I was 15 years old with [size] F [breasts]. How do you navigate that?”

Having a celebrity such as Winter convey what she did is helpful to so many women who experience the same troubles she did. They are able to relate to what she has encountered as well as empower themselves knowing that there is a solution and not to discount the benefits of breast reduction surgery.

Numerous women are affected with discomfort due to their breast size. In fact, it is estimated that more than one million American women are encountering this.

Moreover, most women do not impulsively decide on this surgery. They perform their due diligence by researching it, finding the best board certified plastic surgeons, perusing before and after galleries on surgeons’ websites, and visit helpful online resources where potential patients can ask doctors questions such as RealSelf.com.

Despite being fitted for the right bra and undergarments, there still remains a direct link to pain and discomfort due to the heaviness. As mentioned earlier, women seek this breast reduction surgery because of the excess weight on their chest which can cause the following issues:

*Back pain

*Neck pain

*Headaches

*Shoulder pain

*Shortness of breath

*Numbness and tingling in the arms

Headaches may be derived from the tightness in the shoulders and neck.

It is also important to point out that the more excess weight on the chest a woman carries, the more her shoulders tend to lean and roll forward. This may cause anatomical changes to her frame. Her posture may be compromised to compensate for the cumbersome pounds she must carry.

A group of doctors, including Bethannie Snodgrass, MD who authored, “When Less Is More: The Complete Guide for Women Considering Breast Reduction Surgery,” clearly points this out in her comprehensive book.

Snodgrass wanted her readers to know that this position could potentially cause a compression located in the thoracic spine. A culmination of pressure in the shoulder blades, ribs, nerves may theoretically cause this.

Another area of discomfort which cannot be overlooked is the shoulders. By the end of the day, bra straps are embedded so deeply into the shoulders of women leaving red and painful indentations.

Like all cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures, the decision to learn more about a breast reduction should be made thoughtfully. And teaming up with the right board certified plastic surgeon can help answer questions and navigate a patient in their decision making process.

The Stages of Facial Rejuvenation

By: | Tags: , , , , ,

woman noseAs time marches on, one may begin to notice changes in their facial appearance starting as early as their thirties. And with each decade that passes, more features alter a bit more. While sunscreen and solar protection help tremendously with a premature skin aging defense, the natural process of getting older will become evident at some point.

Venturing out into the world of cosmetic procedures, please partner with a board certified plastic surgeon. They are adept in these procedures and have undergone hours of education which underscore their skill in this field.

While every individual is different, including their personal aesthetic needs, there are some commonalities as one reaches those age-related milestones.

The Thirty-Something Years

During this decade, it’s more important than ever to establish an anti-aging skin routine. On the top of the list is applying sunscreen when outdoors. Reapplying sunscreen when one is outside is optimal for skin care health.

Today’s sunscreens are featherweight and work perfectly under makeup.

The most significant changes one will notice in their thirties are fine lines at the following zones:

  • Around the eyes
  • Along the forehead and between the brows
  • Around the mouth

To help lessen these lines, this is generally the moment when one inquires about Botox and temporary fillers such as Juvederm.

The Forty-Something Realities

During this decade, there is more evidence of one’s skin beginning to change and take on a new appearance. For example, wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead deepen a bit more.

Youthful volume may also begin to diminish around cheek area, too. The side effect of this natural phenomenon is actually deeper nasolabial folds.

Cosmetic injections still play a valuable role in this age range. In regard to the cheeks, Voluma is an injectable that adds volume to the cheek area for up to two years. While Voluma adds volume, nasolabial folds may diminish as the cheeks are raised upward; however, some patients still choose to have a temporary filler in addition to the Voluma to plump up these lines.

Another treatment many look into is a series of chemical peels.

For women and men who dislike the bags under their eyes, they may consider a lower eyelid lift also referred to as a blepharoplasty. The surgery really does give patients a renewed and well-rested appearance.

Quinquagenarian And Up

When one steps into their fifties, they may begin to notice that cosmetic injections may not be providing the results they once had. It may just be too subtle.

Areas of more slack skin and loss of volume can typically be found in the following areas:

  • Neck
  • Jawline
  • Cheeks
  • Upper and lower eyelids

When a patient is ready, an operative facial procedure may be the optimal pathway. Effective microsurgical techniques have revolutionized traditional neck lifts and facelifts. And when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, the recovery period is swift.

Oftentimes, operative facial rejuvenation also involves a facial fat transfer. This is when an area of the body (the abdomen or upper thighs) undergoes a small amount of fat retrieval via liposuction, and then the fat is redelivered to targeted areas of the face for added volume.

With so much valuable information only a click away on the Internet, it is advisable for patients to do their due diligence. Online, they can research potential doctors, read patient reviews, and make certain a doctor is a board certified plastic surgeon through sites such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Cosmetic surgery leads the way for Baby Boomers and Gen X

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

woman middle age

Plastic surgery has presented youthful opportunities to numerous generations. Currently, generations which are benefiting from it are the Baby Boomers and those leading the pack for Generation X.

These two groups are looking to board certified plastic surgeons to regain a more youthful appearance. Considering that people are working longer in corporate America, it’s reasonable that they want to look as good as they feel.

Additionally, social media and all its nuances, including online dating, have triggered consultation appointments with plastic surgeons.

A solid source for reliability comes from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, also referred to as ASAPS. Annually, they compile data to glean a better understanding of age groups seeking plastic surgery and correlating that information with types of plastic surgery treatments most chosen.

Here is precisely what ASAPS collected for the Baby Boomer generation for 2014:

  • Ten million patients underwent both surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures
  • Those between 51 to 64 years of age were part of this calculation
  • Twenty-four percent had cosmetic surgery
  • Thirty-two percent underwent minimally invasive procedures
  • Those 65 years of age and above accounted for 5 percent of surgical rejuvenation

 

For those in their 30s to late 40s, Generation X has begun to rely on minimally invasive procedures such as cosmetic injections like Botox and Juvederm for facial rejuvenation; however, one would be remiss if they did not pinpoint the leap in Mommy Makeovers. This is a highly popular procedure that helps mothers restore their post baby figure with a breast lift and/or breast augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction.

Now, back to the Baby Boomers and what types of procedures they did undergo in 2014:

Patient expectations for these procedures should be natural appearing rejuvenation.

Mature patients in the Baby Boomer generation can be afforded an array of rejuvenation procedures. Operatively, microsurgical skills are unmatched and board certified plastic surgeons are incredibly adept.

And on the anesthesia front, pain management begins in the operating room which ultimately means that patients require less anesthesia during the course of the surgery, awaken less lethargic, and experience lower discomfort levels postoperatively.

While such impressive surgical achievements have been made, a consultation with a board certified surgeon will determine the best procedures for those aesthetic wishes. It’s also important to note that a plastic surgeon will take a comprehensive look at a patient’s medical history.

They will assess any high risk factors such as:

  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Blood thinner medications
  • Heart disease history

If any risk factors are determined, then a plastic surgeon will proceed accordingly.

Consultations are an opportune time to discuss a patient’s aesthetic wishes, learn about the surgery they are interested in, while discovering if they have a genuine rapport with their potential surgeon.

If all goes well during the surgery, the next step in planning the surgery can be done. However, if there is any ambivalence, do take time to think it over and perhaps even meet with the doctor once again. Cosmetic surgery is an important decision, and one should always be mindful during such considerations.

Plastic Surgeons Redefine Hand Rejuvenation

By: | Tags:

Hands

There is an array of minimally noninvasive procedures which do a tremendous job in restoring a more youthful appearance. On this aesthetic roster are liquid facelifts, commonly referred to as cosmetic injections.

While Botox® smooths out fine lines along the forehead area and lines around the eyes, fillers such as Juvederm®, can help erase nasolabial folds. And one would be remiss if they did not mention Voluma® which is an outstanding filler created by the makers of Juvederm® which adds volume to the cheek area.

Over the years, one area where women have wanted to revitalize is their hands. Environmental factors, such as ultraviolet rays, impact the hands which can spur premature aging. Signs of this may include one or more of the following:

  • Slack skin and wrinkles
  • A crepe-like appearance and texture
  • Dull skin tone
  • Dehydrated skin

Due to this natural aging process, tendons and veins on the tops of hands are more visible. Many women who undergo facial rejuvenation and live a healthy lifestyle also yearn to have younger looking hands.

While lotions can hydrate, it cannot add fullness.

Meeting the needs of these patients, many board certified plastic surgeons are now offering a minimally invasive procedure which lasts under 20 minutes called the “hand lift.”

The goal of the procedure is to rejuvenate the hands by adding volume. Doctors utilize the precise same fillers as they do for liquid facelifts.

Radiesse® was recently approved by the FDA for this procedure. It’s also important to note that this manufacturer is the first of its kind which is approved for this treatment.

Facial fat grafting, a procedure where a plastic surgeon harvests fat via liposuction from a patient’s body to add volume to the face, has also been used for hand augmentation. However, some doctors noticed once the fat was delivered, there was sometimes a bumpy appearance.

Radiesse® was decided among doctors to be an optimal choice since its compound ingredients are from calcium. Conversely, Juvederm ®has been a consideration, but it appeared that its hyaluronic acid components did not last longer than Radiesse®.

Plastic surgeons estimate that a hand augmentation with Radiesse® lasts up to a year. Some patients contend the newfound appearance lasts 24 months.

It seems that “hand lifts” are not only geared toward more mature women. Even younger women are undergoing the procedure so their hands have an additional boost of youth when uploading photos of their hands on social media sites. For example, women donning a new engagement ring or piece of jewelry want to share this with their friends but are unhappy with the way their hands appear.

New reports indicate that mature brides, mother of the brides, and mother of the grooms are also booking their hand augmentations. They want youthful appearing hands for those posterity photos.

While the side effects of this procedure are minimal, it’s still highly recommended to speak with a board certified surgeon about any potential risks or complications.

Hand lifts are indeed a growing trend and those in the cosmetic industry expect to see a higher demand for this procedure within the next few years.

The Mommy Makeover Rejuvenation Appeal

By: | Tags:

Mom bubbles

For many women, motherhood is one of the most rewarding things they may experience. While a day at the spa can be a relaxing experience with a facial and massage on the menu, those afternoon perks may not address the true rejuvenation a woman is seeking.

Some ladies may desire an extra renewal boost called a “Mommy Makeover.” An operative procedure, this skilled comprehensive surgery generally includes a trifecta of the following:

  • Tummy Tuck
  • Breast Lift (with or without implants)
  • Liposuction

Pregnancy and breastfeeding may take a physical toll on a woman and these above procedures have the ability to reverse a woman’s body back to her hourglass figure. One woman may want all three procedures, while another may only want one. It’s a personal decision.

At a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, they will assess what’s called “skin redundancy” and either lift or excise it. Especially for the abdomen region, a tummy tuck can dramatically reduce the appearance of stretch marks and any stubborn post-pregnancy areas which seem to be immune to diet and exercise.

A couple decades ago, mothers were not afforded the opportunity to undergo a transformative surgery after their childbearing years. They had to resign themselves to the fact that their bodies would not return to their pre-pregnancy days despite their diligent healthy lifestyle.

But times have changed. There are operative prospects with optimal results.

The surgical techniques which have emerged are utterly profound for women who are candidates for one or more of these procedures. With that said, it’s important to interject how necessary it is for mothers interested in this surgery to consider the following perspectives:

  • They are done bearing children
  • They have maintained a stable weight for six or more months
  • They implement a healthy lifestyle and diet

As mentioned earlier, candidates for Mommy Makeovers have indeed tried diet and exercise to reverse their post pregnancy shape but sometimes to no avail. And this is precisely where operative intervention may be the right course to consider.

The breast lift (with or without implants) can replenish the volume a woman once had before having children.

As for the abdominal area, a tummy tuck will remove excess skin and fat deposits, lessen the appearance of stretch marks and tighten the abdominal muscles which may have separated during the pregnancy.

Liposuction is an excellent tool to help sculpt the body for a slimmer waistline, shapely hips, and more.

Women are delighted that in one rejuvenation surgery all these areas of the body can be redefined. Leading plastic surgeons also take into consideration that each patient is unique as are her needs. While the term “Mommy Makeover” has become branded, quite frankly, it is a tailored procedure to meet the individual aesthetic requirements of each woman.

Plastic surgeons would be remiss if they did not mention how women who undergo this special procedure also inquire about cosmetic injections, frequently referred to as the liquid facelift. Botox to erase frown lines, Juvederm to plump up smile lines, and Voluma to add more cheek volume is indeed in demand.

Mothers work hard, and in return, they deserve to redefine themselves through youthful beauty.

Dr. D. Glynn Bolitho Chosen As 2015 Castle Connolly Top Doctor

By: | Tags: , ,

Dr.-Bolitho

For the second consecutive year, San Diego plastic surgeon, Dr. D. Glynn Bolitho, was chosen for the 2015 regional Top Doctor List by the highly regarded organization of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Once again, Dr. Bolitho is both honored and delighted to be recognized by this elite organization.

According to Maria Salvador, the director of corporate resources at Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., they take the challenge of identifying “Top Doctors” very seriously.

“Since the company’s founding in 1991, our ‘Top Doctors’ guides have been identifying the nation’s best doctors and hospitals in every part of the country and in every medical specialty. Our lists are based on peer nominations and professional assessments by our physician-led research team and not on hype, advertising, or third parties that have something to gain by recommending a particular provider,” she said. “Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors are rigorously selected from among hundreds of thousands of physicians. Our intensive research methodology is designed to identify doctors that will speed patients’ healing, minimize pain and discomfort, shorten recovery periods and enhance and lengthen lives – in other words, achieve the best possible health outcomes.”

The goal for Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., is to help individuals locate the best healthcare in all fields of medicine. Salvador pointed out they have published a variety of books including the “Top Doctors” series, the most popular of which is America’s Top Doctors® for over two decades. Now in the Internet Age, they are dedicating their resources to online and digital distribution.

Salvador also wants people to know that anyone can draw up a “Top” or “Best” list and many do.

“Pharmaceutical companies favor those physicians who are high prescribers of their drugs,” she said, adding how other mentions may be paid listings. Salvador continued, “But Castle Connolly has no such conflicts of interest. Our sole purpose is to help patients, their families, and their employers find health care providers who deliver superior results. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included in any Castle Connolly Guide or online directory.”

Championed by a Castle Connolly physician team, this group prudently assesses and analyzes the credentials of every nominated physician. They peruse the following:

  • Magazine Articles
  • Website
  • Medical Education and Training
  • Board Certifications
  • Hospital Affiliations and Appointments
  • Professional Achievements

And more….

In 2014 and 2015, Dr. Bolitho was selected as “Regional Top Doctors” which is typically done by nomination of his peers in the metropolitan area. “These doctors are considered to be the physician leaders in their community,” Salvador said, “and attract majority of their patient base from the local population.”

Dr. Bolitho is quadrupled certified in the United States of America, Canada, Great Britain and South Africa. He is serving his second term as Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla. At the University of California in San Diego, Dr. Bolitho fulfills a non-salaried appointment as Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Bolitho’s plastic surgery fellowship training was at the prestigious Emory University in Atlanta. Following a full-time faculty position there, he founded his La Jolla private practice in 2000.

For decades, Dr. Bolitho has been an active member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

While providing extraordinary care for his patients is his ongoing mission, he feels privileged to be recognized by Castle Connolly as one of their Regional Top Doctors.

How Fat Grafting Enhances Facelift Surgery

By: | Tags: , ,

middle age woman

Plastic surgeons have discovered the benefits of incorporating fat grafting methods as part of the protocol for operative facial rejuvenation surgery. In a recent issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, a medical journal published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), they revealed some interesting data in how this technique is enhancing the world of facelift surgery.

In fact, it has swiftly become a common component to the surgery be it a limited incision facelift or a more comprehensive procedure.

The study which unveiled this information was championed by Dr. Sammy Sinno, a board certified plastic surgeon at New York University, along with the assistance of his colleagues.

Wolters Kluwer of Medical Xpress cited, “The researchers surveyed a random sample of ASPS members regarding their use of fat grafting for facelift procedures. In this technique, the surgeon performs liposuction to obtain fat cells from another part of the body—such as the abdomen or thighs—and carefully injects them to provide additional volume in selected areas of the face.”

More than 300 ASPS member surgeons took part in the survey.

Leaning on ASPS member surgeons provides an accurate base point. Those who are part of this organization are highly regarded for their education and expertise in their field of medicine.

The response from the study revealed that 85 percent of the respondents stated that they indeed utilize fat grafting during operative facial rejuvenation procedures, otherwise known as facelifts. It was suggested that the increase of this particular technique occurred within the last decade.

While operative facial rejuvenation addresses wrinkles, facial fat grafting is an excellent modality in addressing the loss of facial volume such as in the cheek area. This modality can be of great benefit to reverse this.

Leading up to fat grafting, the following occurs:

  • The collection of fat via gentle hand-harvesting (i.e., liposuction tool)
  • Process of purification
  • Delivery and transfer techniques

The study indicated that the common site where fat was harvested was the abdominal area. The amount of fat transferred into the facial area varied. The survey revealed that this small amount gathered ranged from 11 to 25 cubic centimeters, also known as cc’s.

While a degree of some fat from the transfer does have the potential to reabsorb, ASPS member surgeons agreed that the majority of the transfer was still visibly present one year postoperatively.

The common areas of fat grafting include the following:

  • Cheeks
  • Lower eyelids
  • Nasolabial Folds

In some instances, the study pointed out that fat grafting follow-up treatments were sometimes performed again four to six months after surgery to redefine specific areas. Nonetheless, both patients and their doctors were pleased with the aesthetic outcome.

Toward the end of the study, Dr. Sinno surmised, “The results of our survey demonstrate most surgeons currently believe that facial fat repositioning in combination with volume addition increases the ability to utilize these two complementary techniques to restore the volumetric highlights noted in youth, thereby enhancing facial shape.”

Frankly, volume restoration by way of fat grafting has added another level to facial rejuvenation and has invariably improved a youthful appearance for many patients. This additional phase has transformed into a more prominent role in facial rejuvenation surgery.

Breast Reconstruction Awareness Campaign Magnifies

By: | Tags: , , ,

breast-cancer-awareness-month-1

In a recent edition of Plastic Surgery News, published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), many of its esteemed doctor members that perform reconstruction surgeries for breast cancer patients were delighted to read how the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Campaign is indeed increasing.

The campaign was founded by Mitchell Brown, M.D., a plastic surgeon based in Canada. In 2011, his vision came to fruition. And it has done a world of good for countless women. Brown’s foresight has helped empower women to learn about their options regarding different components of breast reconstruction surgery.

When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and requires a mastectomy or bilateral mastectomy, through a haze of personal turmoil and confusion, navigation is essential to her well-being by understanding that she does have breast reconstruction choices.

This also holds true for women who undergo a bilateral mastectomy due to a strong family history of breast cancer or being told she tested positive for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.

The ability to give women surgical possibilities to rebuild their breasts can give them a sense of control.

While some women choose not to have the reconstruction, others want to undergo the procedure; nevertheless, being afforded the option is the cornerstone of the campaign.

In a recent piece written by Rosie Marszalek, “Breast Reconstruction Awareness Campaign Expands,” she reminded readers that Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day is on October 21, 2015. She went on to cite that in 2014, ASPS members throughout 44 states took part in this campaign. Among these states, a tally of 160 plastic surgery practices joined together in hopes to help women learn about their reconstruction options after having lost either one or both breasts due to cancer.

“Recognizing that women are fighting breast cancer every day, however, this year the Society is encouraging all ASPS members who perform breast reconstruction procedures to host a Breast Reconstruction Awareness event on any day throughout the entire year as part of the new ‘BRAve Face” campaign,” Marszalek writes. She continues, “In addition to local events, the BRAve Face campaign also features Patti LaBelle as its national spokesperson.”

Many have described the acclaimed singer as an ardent supporter of women who have undergone breast cancer.

In a statement, LaBelle told ASPS, “Women battling this disease need to have access to information about their rights and options to make informed choices about what’s best for them and their life following breast cancer treatment.”

As mentioned before, it is a time not only on October 21, but throughout the year, to provide resources and access to women so they can become educated. It’s the hope of ASPS that members will join together by championing events in an effort to raise this awareness.

In the past, an array of events has taken place such as:

  • Educational Receptions and Seminars
  • Art Exhibits and Contests
  • Luncheons and Galas
  • Sporting Activities and Contests
  • Flash Mobs
  • Dance Contests
  • And more….

ASPS members are encouraged to think “outside the box” and champion an event large or small. It is an opportunity for a community of like-minded and dedicated people to join together for a special cause.

Helping women who are “fighting the fight” and arming them with knowledge on breast reconstruction is a powerful movement for all involved.
