Susan G. Komen for the Cure Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

bullet Important Information About Implant Breast Enlargement: Among the most frequently performed procedures in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, Implant Breast Enlargement or Augmentation Mammaplasty requires careful pre-op consideration and decision making. This process begins with a careful Consultation, concentrating on the history of any breast process, including pregnancies, breast-feeding, breast surgeries, and any family history of breast disease or breast cancer. Mammography is also an important consideration for prospective candidates over age 40, in accordance with the guidelines of the American Cancer Society. Careful physical examination is also very important since physical characteristics of the individuals’ breasts, such as shape, size, volume, symmetry, skin characteristics, inframammary fold and nipple position have a great bearing on the achievable result. Also, chest wall size, shape, and symmetry, and patient height and weight have a significant impact on the achievable result as well.
