Dr. Diederich at Bra Day USA 2014 holding signs in support of breast cancer

It’s BRA DAY, let’s close the gap on breast cancer treatment!

Many women eligible for breast reconstruction following cancer surgery are not being informed of their options. All women should have the option to meet with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to learn their options. It’s time to close the loop on breast cancer.
Studies have revealed:

• Eighty-nine percent of women want to see what breast reconstruction surgery results before undergoing cancer treatment.

• Less than a quarter (23 percent) of women know the wide range of breast reconstruction options available.

• Only 22 percent of women are familiar with the quality of outcomes that can be expected.

• Only 19 percent of women understand that the timing of their treatment for breast cancer and the timing of their decision to undergo reconstruction greatly impacts their options and results.
