  • For women that have undergone drastic treatments for breast cancer, breast reconstruction may prove beneficial. It seems that singer Jewel has partnered with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons to raise awareness about breast reconstruction.

    On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn writes, “Two famous singers have recently publicly partnered with plastic surgery groups.  The singer Jewel has partnered with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS, of which I am a member) to raise awareness of breast reconstruction after mastectomy for breast cancer.  Studies show that 7 in 10 women with breast cancer are not fully informed as to their reconstructive options.  Other studies have shown that breast reconstruction can significantly improve a woman’s self-image following breast cancer surgery.”

    “Jewel has recorded a song (Flower) for the cause, which can be downloaded on iTunes and Amazon.com.  She is also planning a benefit concert at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in New Orleans next month.  She has been officially named as the national spokeswoman for the Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) campaign.  One month from now -October 17th- has been designated official BRA Day USA.”

    In the past, Jewel is thought to have had breast implants (See Make Me Heal’s story on Jewel’s breast augmentation).

    Before reconstruction surgery, women can also wear mastectomy bras to help them fit into clothes a little more comfortably.
