"What am I going to look like?"
Each of our board members asked themselves this very question upon learning they would need a mastectomy due to a breast cancer diagnosis. And when searching for real life, actual selfies of patients who'd went flat, they came up short... like, way short.
Think: cold surgical photos.
It's a huge reason why each of us began advocating and what drew us together to form the community & organization that is Flat Closure NOW! We had our imaginations to visualize the medical aspects of the surgery, what we REALLY needed to visualize was the actual mastectomy patient showcasing their scars and quality of life after going flat.
Every mastectomy patient shown below has graciously offered their aesthetic flat closure photos to the world with the hope that it may help fellow patients in making the best choice for them.
Tip: Show these photos to your surgeon!
