October is breast cancer awareness month – and Wednesday 20th is Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day – so let’s create reconstructive pathways for women! Breast cancer effects many Kiwi women, of all ages, and the breast cancer journey is often scary, anxious and filled with unknowns, so it’s important we support beyond diagnosis and treatment. Breast reconstruction can restore what breast cancer takes away – normalcy, body confidence and assurance. However, too few Kiwi breast cancer patients opt for reconstruction following a mastectomy – this is often due to limited knowledge being shared.
They say change is as good as a holiday – but not on your skin. With the promise of warmer days less than three months away, many of us are turning our thoughts to beaches and barbeques and bikinis.

Winter is on the backfoot, so it’s the perfect time to address those body ambitions and spring into spring! Here’s how you can rejuvenate in more ways than one . . .

Counting on a little more tummy confidence for summer 2021 – or maybe greater lift and enhancement on the breast front? Then winter is your season to send fat packing and push out – or up – a little more. Undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures, like abdominoplasty or breast augmentation, can be undertaken anytime of the year but the cooler seasons bring greater advantages in terms of recovering, temperatures and hidden features. Here’s why now could be the best time for you to press play on those body ambitions.
If you’ve just had a facelift or are about to undergo a procedure, you’ll want the best advice on how to care for the new you. Why is a new skin care routine so important? Because you’ll want to maintain and preserve those results as best you can!
Breast implants continue to move with the times – so sizing should follow suit too. When you tune into an implant fit for your body – and forget ‘cup’ size mentality – best results happen. “There has been significant changes in breast augmentation in the last five years, with a change in the availability of implants and new technology such as Motiva Ergonomics implants and fat grafting for breast augmentation,” says Adam Bialostocki, Da Vinci Plastic Surgery Clinic’s cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon.
