Unfortunately, our doctors don’t exactly give us style advice on pretty bras to wear after a single mastectomy, and post-op care doesn’t come with a catalog on what bras will flatter our natural boob and flat side simultaneously. Is it really so much to ask for a little bit of guidance on how to ensure our self-confidence will heal along with our surgical side?! It’s enough to make anyone crazy, frustrated, and uncomfortable

In 1998, a federal law went into place that provides protections to patients who choose to have breast reconstruction in connection with a mastectomy. Even though the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) has been around for nearly 20 years, we are contacted far too often by women wishing they had the choice to reconstruct, or knew that they even had the option following their mastectomy. We always advocate that breast reconstruction is a personal choice. It's your body, and it's your decision, but we all deserve to know more about our options.
