In 2016, it is estimated that one out of every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes.
That is one too many women being diagnosed with this form, or any form, of cancer.
Thanks to modern science and updates in how we use technology, women are able to respond more quickly to a breast cancer diagnosis.
Mastectomy, as you likely already know, is the option many women choose to take after a breast cancer diagnosis, as well. A mastectomy offers piece of mind, and more women then ever are opting for a double-mastectomy even when cancer only presents itself in one breast.
According to Breastcancer.org, 33% of women under the age of 40 who are diagnosed with breast cancer are opting for double mastectomy surgery. This is a rather large number, and while the topic of cancer is a hard one to swallow, many women come to Precision Skin Institute following surgery and treatment with a renewed sense of vigor and zest for life.
They are also quite passionate about treatment to reduce mastectomy and reconstructive surgery scarring.
Laser therapy utilized by dermatologists has recently become the gold standard in treatment for post-procedural scars. A laser procedure is also an ideal way to remove post-radiation tattoos, as well. Unfortunately, breast cancer patients are often left with unsightly scars and tattoos after radiation which are daily reminder of the struggle they endured and the physical effects left on their bodies.
At Precision Skin Institute, we are confident that advanced laser and energy based technologies used by experienced dermatologists can improve these physical scars, ultimately reducing the effect of the emotional scars as well.
