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.
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.
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.
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.
Meetings are held on Tuesday evenings 7pm-8.30pm at the St Andrews Out-Patients Department, Broomfield Hospital. Upcoming meetings for 2019 are below:
