Plastic surgeons say too many women are uninformed about their options for reconstructive surgery after breast cancer

Jay Orringer, MD, consults with a patient at his office in Beverly Hills, CA. Orringer recently performed reconstructive surgery on Angelina Jolie and says more women need to take a team approach to cancer care, including developing a plan for reconstructive surgery after mastectomies. Orringer is headlining Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day - or BRA Day USA - October 16th in Miami, an event sponsored by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
