I am delighted to join my colleagues Consultant Plastic Surgeon Mr Marc Pacifico and Consultant Breast Surgeon Mr Haresh Devalia for our annual breast awareness event at Purity Bridge. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we use this evening to highlight the importance of breast self-examination and awareness of breast health. Haresh gives a very informative talk on spotting the warning signs of breast cancer. He shows our ladies-only audience the correct way to self examine their breasts. We are always very grateful to our brave volunteer for this part of the evening! Marc then covers the range of options available nowadays for breast reconstruction. This is followed by a talk from me on restorative breast surgery for example after pregnancy or weight loss or counteracting the ageing process.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. I am seeing more and more women in my practice for breast reconstructive surgery. The chances of successful treatment are much higher if it is caught early. This is why it is so important to regularly check your breasts and see your doctor early if you have any concerns.
This is a free event for ladies only. To book your place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the clinic team on 01892 536 960. Alternatively, Claire my practice manager would be delighted to help book your place. I look forward to seeing you there!
