As Medical Director at Your Medicos, S.C., Dr. Thomas Heggen has directly diagnosed patients with breast cancer. Despite the fact that he is not an Oncologist, Dr. Heggen has gone the extra mile to help patients affected by the illness.
An aesthetic and cosmetic surgeon with a reputation for incorporating integrative medicine into his treatments, Dr. Thomas Heggen felt a need to do his part. In his line of medicine, women often come to his practice at Your Medicos, S.C. seeking procedures to enhance their natural beauty. When interviewed about his free services event, he explained that it’s important for cancer patients to feel relaxed and beautiful. Battling any illness is a struggle in itself, one that nearly takes over the entire focus of the diagnosed individual’s life. Dr. Heggen explained that between balancing the trials of daily life with a life-changing diagnosis, patients are often unable to greet a moment of pause and serenity.
In October of 2017, he organized a series of beautification and health treatments for patients with breast cancer. These treatments were provided complimentary and completely free-of-charge. Fueled by a natural desire to serve and help others, he felt compelled to offer this opportunity to patients, both new and returning.
