October brings apple cider, crisp weather and pink ribbons.

Breast Cancer Awareness month begins today, and the Skin Care Krew is doing their part! This year, Blair Plastic Surgery is promoting BRA Day, the first annual event in the United States!

BRA Day is Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day, a day set aside to raise awareness at of all reconstruction options after surgical treatment for breast cancer. 7 out of 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer are never told their full surgical reconstruction options, and may be left struggling to find clothes to fit, a sense of loss and inability to emotionally heal.

Here in the office, The Admiral, Dr Robert Louton, will be giving a series of seminars all about breast surgery. Together with an online initiative and offices of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons nationwide, we can all get the word out about closing the loop on breast cancer.
