October is breast cancer awareness month and October 15th is Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day (BRA day). More than 65% of women eligible for breast reconstruction following cancer surgery are not being informed of their options. All women should know their options. BRA day and PSEF aim to educate women about their breast reconstruction options. On October 15th Dr. Sofer at the Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield organized an event to raise money and awareness for breast reconstruction. Through your generous donations and donations from sponsors, the Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield raised $2500 for the Swim across the sound and $1000 for Plastic Surgery Education Foundation for BRA day. (Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day). Dr. Sofer and the Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield Staff, want to thank our patients and sponsors for making the Breast Reconstruction awareness event on October 15th a great success. Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield would like to especially thank Sientra for their continued support and education for breast cancer patients.
