Angelina Jolie's Double Mastectomy Doctor Details Process & Procedure

Angelina Jolie's Double Mastectomy Doctor Details Process & Procedure

Earlier this week, Angelina Jolie detailed her account of her cancer-preventative double mastectomy in an op-ed piece.

Now, the 37-year-old actress’ doctor has written an informative blog post, titled “A Patient’s Journey: Angelina Jolie“, to raise awareness and let possible patients know their options.

“On February 2, 2013, Angelina was in the operating room for the first operation, the nipple delay. Her partner [Brad Pitt] was on hand to greet her as soon as she came around from the anesthetic, as he was during each of the operations,” Dr. Kristi Funk wrote. “After the operation, her skin was slightly bruised but soon returned to normal. Two days after her procedure, great news arrived: the tissue behind both nipples came back completely normal.”

Angelina expected to feel well, to be active. On Monday, the pathology returned and I called Angelina to confirm our biggest hope: all of the breast tissue was benign. The final operation occurred on April 27, 2013, ten weeks after the mastectomies: reconstruction of the breasts with implant, which went extremely well, bringing an end to her surgical journey,” Dr. Funk continued.
