Beating a cancer diagnosis may seem like the end of that journey, but that’s not exactly the case. As breast cancer survivor Wendy Waller explains it, “the aftereffects stay with you a long time, I feel like my journey is not complete yet.” Dr. Randall Craft, Plastic Surgeon at Cancer Treatment Centers of America says that’s why part of CTCA’s whole-person approach takes into account body image.
After a mastectomy, you may think breast augmentation is the only choice, but as Dr. Craft explains, there are more options for patients, some of which are covered by insurance.
