Rates for preventative mastectomy surgeries are rising - We believe this can only be a good thing
Recent studies have revealed that an increasing number of women are receiving preventative, 'prophylactic mastectomy' surgery.
The debate over surgeries such as these has proven to be particularly heated, with the majority of controversy centered on the issue of whether or not doctors are ethically entitled to recommend invasive preventative surgeries to their patients. While it is obvious that the early removal of breast tissue can drastically reduce the likelihood of breast cancer, critics of the surgery are saying that this process should, by no means, become standard practice for women, nor should it ever be expected of women.
A rapidly increasing number of medical and scientific groups, alongside support organisations, are supporting this rising trend, saying that these surgeries are occurring as the result of increased education and awareness of the life-threatening risks of breast cancer. Those in support of these surgeries also argue that those who are diagnosed with breast cancer will undoubtedly require these surgeries at some point. The prophylactic mastectomy is, essentially, undertaking a step that will ultimately be required, regardless.
Chantilly Rose, a clothing boutique located in Essex, caters specifically to women who have undertaken mastectomy surgeries. When asked to discuss these recent findings, the owners of this business, in keeping with the sentiments of their colleagues, remained quite supportive of those who voluntarily chose to undergo mastectomy surgeries. Acknowledging how difficult such a decision could be, proponents of prophylactic mastectomy surgery, such as Chantilly Rose, declare the women who undergo these procedures to be of the highest order of bravery and fearlessness.
On some level, Chantilly Rose has become an “authority”
Chantilly Rose offers post-mastectomy outerwear, swimsuits and intimate wear to women in the UK and abroad.
