UCI Plastic Surgery can add another successful event to our books! Held late last month at the swanky Seasons 52, over 40 men and women attended our Season of the Beautiful Breast event. Put on in conjunction with the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of California Irvine, the symposium celebrated breast cancer awareness month as well as the latest advancements and options in breast reconstruction.
Attendees enjoyed the chance to mingle and enjoy wine, carefully crafted cocktails, and delicious appetizers—all while learning new information about breast implants and sizing. UCI Plastic Surgery’s Allergan® representative was in attendance to answer questions. Our special guest brought along a number of breast implants—giving our patients the unique opportunity to hold and feel different implants from Allergan.
Dr. Evans spoke about the latest in breast cancer. Dr. Paydar continued the discussion with a presentation focused around breast augmentation. In attendance were our esteemed colleagues, Dr. Leis and Dr. Ng. Our lovely team members, Melanie Castillo and Christine Solis, came to support our plastic surgeons.
As we do with all of our events, we enjoyed the chance to talk with patients in a more relaxed and inviting setting. Please contact our Southern California practice to learn about UCI Plastic Surgery’s upcoming events. We cannot wait to see you!
