Who attends BRA Meetings?

Breast Reconstruction Awareness Meetings are open to any women who are considering immediate or delayed breast reconstruction. They are also attended by women who have had breast reconstruction and who are at various stages of treatment, including nipple reconstruction and nipple areola micro-pigmentation (nipple tattooing). Many of those attending are happy to speak openly of their experiences.

When & Where are BRA Meetings?

BRA meetings are held twice a month on Tuesday evenings, 7pm – 8.30pm, at the St Andrews Out-Patients Department Broomfield Hospital. All meetings are held in an informal and relaxed atmosphere with light refreshments provided.

You are welcome to bring along a female relative or friend for support. Our Breast Reconstruction Nurses are always on hand to answer questions you may have about any type of breast reconstruction.

What BRA Meetings offer

You will have the time to discuss surgery and to understand and consider the options open to you. You can learn what surgery entails and discover the many types of support available to you and your family during surgery and after discharge.

  • An informal and relaxed atmosphere
  • The opportunity to meet other women facing the same issues
  • Advice and support from trained and experienced Breast Reconstruction Nurses
  • Direct access to women who have already benefited from surgery
  • Answers to your questions from people with recent experience of the issues you are facing
  • Reassurance

Although your plastic surgeon will have explained all the details of the surgery, it can often be very difficult to absorb the information and formulate the questions you want to ask. Many women have said that they feel more at ease when they are able to ask questions and express their concerns to another women.
