Angelina Jolie Writes About Her Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction

“I hope that other women can benefit from my experience” writes Angelina Jolie in a New York Times op-ed column published today.

The actress and director revealed that she recently chose to have a double mastectomy after doctors told her she had the breast cancer gene BRCA1, meaning Jolie has an (estimated) 87 percent risk of getting the disease.

She decided to be “proactive” and undergo a preventive double mastectomy, followed by breast reconstruction with implants. The procedures were completed just last month.

About her reconstruction, she writes:

“Nine weeks later, the final surgery is completed with the reconstruction of the breasts with an implant. There have been many advances in this procedure in the last few years, and the results can be beautiful.”
