Birmingham Maple Clinic Reports that Positive Social Support and Strong Mental Health Key to Positive Elective Mastectomy Outcomes
Date:6/7/2013

Troy, MI (PRWEB) June 07, 2013

A positive support system that includes mental health treatment is key to a successful elective mastectomy experience, according to a recent article published by the Birmingham Maple Clinic in Troy. The article, which looks at the latest research on women who have undergone elective Bilateral Prophylactic Mastectomy (BPM), found that for the majority of women, having a positive support system in place that may include mental health treatment can lead to fewer significant health or body image problems following BPM.

Birmingham Maple Clinic therapist Linda Diaz, in discussing actress Angelina Jolie’s stunning return to the red carpet after announcing that she had undergone elective mastectomy and reconstruction surgery, viewed Jolie’s decision to undergo elective BPM in a positive light thanks to having a strong support system. Diaz said, “When you are choosing elective surgery you have the element of control. Control over when you plan the surgery, time to talk to significant others and the opportunity to be discerning about whom to share with if at all.” Linda adds, “Having support and the ability to talk with people to share their experience is critical.” Diaz also suggests that recent research, and Ms. Jolie herself, all point to signs of a positive adjustment to elective mastectomy, noting, “Angelina Jolie’s recent article punctuated that she feels supported by her spouse and family, satisfied with her decision, and is not questioning her body image or femininity – all traits indicative of a successful adjustment to an elective mastectomy.”

The professional therapists and support team at the Birmingham Maple Clinic offers treatment for those who are considering elective mastectomy and their families, helping to reduce anxiety, work through self-esteem issues and deal with any social difficulties they may be facing. The clinic, located in Troy, offers mental health counseling for families, couples and individuals.
