Valerie Lemaine, M.D., M.P.H.
Join us for our symposium on breast reconstruction at The Westin Edina Galleria!
Minnesota Oncology and Plastic Surgery Consultants are pleased to host our second annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day event! Many women who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy are unaware of their reconstruction and insurance coverage options, and this important day recognizes this often-overlooked part of the breast cancer journey. This event will feature a presentation from leading plastic surgeon Dr. Valerie Lemaine as well as a panel discussion and more.
Topics to be covered include:
- Breast reconstruction options (breast implants, tissue expanders, pre/post surgery concerns, risk and safety, candidates)
- Navigating The Process (Women's Health and Cancer Act, Medicare, Medicaid, Out of Pocket expenses, and Questions to ask the Surgeon)
- Results (look and feel, setting realistic expectations) and getting used to "the new normal" (Bra fitter, balancers, areola tattooing, swimsuits, ongoing medical care and cancer screening).
