October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a month dedicated to educating others about a disease that is diagnosed in over 200,000 people annually in the U.S. alone. Whether it be performing a breast self-exam or going in to receive a mammogram, taking the time to check for the issue can help you catch it early, which will increase your chance of survival.

At Central Ohio Plastic Surgery, we help women who have overcome their breast cancer via mastectomy by providing them with breast reconstruction surgery. Restoring the normal appearance of their breasts can help them to feel normal and healthy again, restoring their comfort with their body. This can significantly improve their quality of life and help them through their recovery.

If you are a breast cancer survivor and are interested in undergoing breast reconstruction surgery, contact Central Ohio Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten can provide you with compassionate care and excellent results.
