The BRAVE community and Dr. Whitfield
Dr. Whitfield is a committed supporter of BRAVE and its mission to assist women. BRAVE was established in 2013 by Christine Grogan who recognized the need for a place where women could get information about breast reconstruction – often a complex and confusing issue. It was discovered that even though one in eight women develop breast cancer and require mastectomy or lumpectomy surgery, only about 30 percent of them were aware that under federal law, their health insurance company was required to cover breast reconstruction.
You have the right to have your breasts restored.
If you are being treated for breast cancer and facing mastectomy or lumpectomy surgery, you have rights under the law – rights that allow you to restore your breasts – often a critical aspect of a full recovery on a personal, and emotional level.
Implant-based breast restoration
With implant-based breast reconstruction, it is critical that from among the many, many sizes, types, and shapes, the perfect implants for your figure are selected. Dr. Whitfield takes detailed measurements of your chest, listens closely to what you envision, and uses 3D imaging for a more thorough concept of how various types of implants will look on your unique body.
