Thursday, January 23, 2020 7-8pm | Options For Breast Reconstruction

After your breast cancer diagnosis, you may have had or are about to have a mastectomy. Your doctor may have mentioned the option of breast reconstruction surgery. However, with so many different options for breast reconstruction, you may be feeling overwhelmed. 

In this Straight Talk: Ask An Expert series, we will explore the different types of breast reconstruction surgeries with Dr. Shannon Wong, MD. Dr. Wong performs plastic and reconstruction surgeries at Village Pointe Aesthetic Surgery in Omaha, NE. She is also an Assistant Professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

During this live webcast, Dr. Wong will discuss the difference between immediate and delayed reconstruction, implant-based reconstruction versus autologous reconstruction, and discuss the benefits of DIEP flap surgery. Dr. Wong will also discuss how radiation and chemotherapy can affect the outcomes and timing of reconstruction. So grab a drink, put on some comfy clothes and tune in with your family for just 60 minutes – all in the comfort of your own home!

This program is complementary to breast cancer survivors in NE & Western IA and is made possible by our many generous donors.
