Patsy Transforms Her Scars Into Works Of Art – And They’re Beautiful!The Breast Cancer Site
After a mastectomy and reconstruction, Patsy MacDonald wanted to love her body again. She wanted to get to know it in its new form — and she wanted to turn her scars into something pretty.
“I think a lot of women like to get back to as close to what they had before,” Patsy says. “Almost all the women in my group who’ve had reconstruction, they’re getting nipples of some sort done on their breasts. And you know what? Everybody has to make their own choice.”
“Your body is forever changed,” she continues. “You’re never gonna look like you did before, so you gotta give that up. And for me, it wasn’t trying necessarily to get back to what I looked like before. It was kinda like, how can I be new, improved, and love me again in all my new bits and pieces?”
