Baby Boomers have proven to be a transformative generation throughout their lives, and now, as they age into their “golden years,” they are transforming the concept of aging. Not content to “go gentle into that good night,” Boomers are focusing on a healthy and active lifestyle and are considering rejuvenating cosmetic procedures to help them to look as youthful as they feel on the inside.
The current year is quickly coming to a close, and with the impending start of a new year many people take stock of what measures can be taken to renew their selves or otherwise make improvements to their physical and mental wellbeing.

Educational awareness about the disease types and stages can help those receiving a breast cancer diagnosis determine the best treatment options. Those whose treatment includes a lumpectomy or mastectomy need to be aware of the various breast reconstruction surgery options available to them.
