Minas Chrysopoulo, MD, FACS

Dr. Minas Chrysopoulo, or “Dr. C,” is a board-certified plastic surgeon, breast reconstruction surgeon and microsurgeon who provides state-of-the-art breast reconstruction at PRMA Plastic Surgery in San Antonio, Texas.

Dr. Chrysopoulo is a pioneer in breast reconstructive surgery and advocacy for breast cancer patients. Not only did Dr. C develop the Breast Advocate App, a free application that provides anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis or at risk of developing breast cancer with evidence-based, personalized information, but he is also one of the select surgeons now offering Resensation℠ to women across the U.S. The new surgical technique uses nerve repair technology to potentially restore sensation to a woman’s chest after a mastectomy.

A woman’s overall health, lifestyle, financial resources, and her personal preferences and goals all factor into the decision about whether to pursue breast reconstruction.
