October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Tragically, breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women today. This means that most of us have some sort of connection to breast cancer patients. Whether we have endured treatment ourselves or know someone who has, it goes without saying that a breast cancer diagnosis affects more than just your medical state. For many women, breasts are a key factor in feeling feminine and beautiful. The potential for cancer to take all of that away can be overwhelming, to say the least.

Fortunately, you are not alone. At Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we are proud to offer services to help you get back to looking and feeling like yourself after your battle with breast cancer.

About Breast Reconstruction

After winning the battle against cancer, one of the first questions on your mind may be “how can I re-establish my breasts?” Whenever possible, we recommend breast reconstruction be performed during the same appointment as the mastectomy, which tends to be better for patients on a financial and emotional level. However, reconstruction can take place at a later time due to a variety of different circumstances.

Recovery from breast reconstruction typically requires at least six weeks. Patients should understand the seriousness of this procedure and give themselves plenty of time to rest so that the body can properly heal.

Our Cancer Aesthetic Program

Our Cancer Aesthetic Program is especially designed to help individuals navigate the side effects of their cancer treatments and regain a feeling of beauty and ease. In this program, we will gladly review your current cosmetic products for safety. We also offer specially customized facials, hand, foot and scalp treatments and makeup consultations to leave you feeling like your best self.

Although breast cancer is never good news, you can rest assured that you do not have to face your situation on your own. At Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we have helped countless survivors in Green and Beechwood, Ohio reclaim their femininity, increase their self-confidence and begin embracing life once again. If you have questions and would like to schedule a consultation, we are here to help.
