Meet Karen! She is a Previvor in Canada. She chose to do a beautiful mastectomy tattoo as part of her reconstruction decision.
She tested positive for the BRCA2 mutation so she decided to do a full hysterectomy and oophrectomy to reduce her risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Two months later she had a risk reducing double mastectomy with reconstruction.
Throughout the years she experienced many complications and had an additional 7 surgeries to correct them. She decided that she did not want any more surgeries. Kareb decided to define beauty on her own terms and had a beautiful floral tattooed on her left breast to cover her incision lines. Karen is a huge patient advocate and supports women all over the world featuring beautiful tattoos on her Instagram page. So honored to share her story to help other women know about this option.
