Surgeons: Repairing The Breast Cancer Survivor`s Body, Helping Her Regain
Peace of Mind|
(press release from ASAPS)
New York, NY (October 17,
2005) ** In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month, The American Society for
Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) would like to remind women of several
options available to them in the breast cancer healing and recovery process:
Silicone Gel Implants may offer a more natural look and feel:
The new generations of silicone gel implants, are currently under evaluation
with the FDA for general availability. However, they are currently available
for women desiring reconstructive surgery. We encourage you to discuss this
option with your doctor. The new gels can offer some women a more natural
feel, appearance and shape than other products available to them. Your
cosmetic surgeon can help you determine the right option for you, both
medically and aesthetically. For more information visit :
www.safebreastimplants.org, a joint project of ASAPS and The
American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)
Retreat centers coast to coast are available to help women feel "whole"
again: Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons are very experienced in repairing a
woman's body. "Reclaiming a sense of power is work a woman has to do
herself, but we can certainly help the process," said Renato Saltz , MD ,
ASAPS Secretary and founder of the Image Reborn Foundation (www.imagerebornfoundation.org)
"What we can do is offer a healthy, healing, retreat place in beautiful Park
City , Utah . The free long weekend allows women to reconnect with
themselves and get expert advice on nutrition, exercise, get educated in
cancer issues, massage and relaxation," said Dr. Saltz, a plastic surgeon in
Salt Lake City Utah who founded the program more than six years ago." Most
importantly the women come in as strangers and quickly develop camaraderie
and share their 'emotional and soul pains' that otherwise they can not share
with anybody else."
The Johns Hopkins Avon Foundation Breast Center , is a comprehensive, multi
disciplinary breast care program, offering a full spectrum of clinical and
support services, from screening and diagnosis to treatment and counseling.
ASAPS member Navin Singh, MD is an Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins
University School of Medicine, Division of Plastic, Reconstructive and &
Maxillofacial Surgery. He is the Director of Breast Reconstruction at the
Hopkins Program. "We try to offer women a comprehensive care experience,
taking care of their bodies and helping them with their emotions" said Dr.
Living Beyond Breast Cancer www.lbbc.org)
is a not for profit organization nationally recognized for the quality of
its educational programs, helping women deal with a range of concerns
including psychosocial, emotional, legal and financial. Aesthetic Society
member John Brien Murphy, MD, a plastic surgeon in the Philadelphia area, is
on the Board of this important organization. "As an aesthetic Surgeon, I
feel that this is a very important resource to women and their families. We
are particularly concerned with meeting the emotional needs of younger women
dealing with the disease", he said. Dr. Murphy noted that there are more
than 250,000 women 40 and under in the U.S. living with breast cancer
Early detection is key!
ASAPS surgeons know the emotional rollercoaster of a breast cancer
diagnosis. The Society's President, Mark Jewell, MD, a plastic surgeon with
a practice in Eugene , OR , offers this important piece of advice: "Get that
mammogram! A breast cancer diagnosis is no longer a death sentence for women
if detected in time. There are also a wide range of reconstructive options
available to you, from special bras to reconstructive surgery. And don't
forget, your surgeon is the best resource for information."
The 2200-member American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is
the only plastic surgery organization devoted entirely to the advancement of
cosmetic surgery. ASAPS is recognized throughout the world as the
authoritative source for cosmetic surgery education. U.S. members are
certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Canadian members are
certified in plastic surgery by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons
