Meet Our Advisors

Our Advisory Council consists of leaders in the professional community who have generously donated their time and expertise to advise the “Not Putting on a Shirt” Board of Directors. We sat down with them to talk about who they are and why they support aesthetic flat closure.

Minas Chrysopoulo, MD, FACS

Advisor, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Shared Decision Making

Dr Chrysopoulo (“Dr C”) is a board certified plastic surgeon, breast reconstruction surgeon and microsurgeon, and President of PRMA Plastic Surgery in San Antonio, TX.   He specializes in state-of-the-art breast reconstruction with a particular focus on perforator flap breast reconstruction, nipple-sparing mastectomy, techniques to maximize aesthetic outcomes, and restoring sensation after mastectomy.

Dr C is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, is an active member of several professional societies including the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery (ASRM), and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) for which he serves on several educational committees.  He has authored and co-authored several book chapters and scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals, and is routinely an expert speaker at regional, national and international academic meetings.

Dr C has dedicated his professional life to advocating for breast cancer patients.  He strongly believes that shared decision-making between the physician and patient is crucial in achieving the best outcomes and has built his practice on this philosophy.  To empower as many patients as possible to advocate for themselves, Dr C created the Breast Advocate® App, a free app that provides anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis, or at increased risk of developing breast cancer, a much needed voice in their breast cancer treatment planning.

Dr. Chrysopoulo is a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in autologous breast reconstruction. He is the President of PRMA Plastic Surgery, and has authored and coauthored several articles and book chapters. Dr. C is also the founder of the Breast Advocate, which is a great tool to help for patients facing breast cancer surgery understand their reconstructive options.
