The results of a recently published study show that Angelina Jolie’s mission to raise awareness, including publicising her decision to undergo a double mastectomy in 2013, has been successful.

A study from Austria shows how Jolie’s actions and the publicity surrounding them have raised awareness and encouraged more women to consider different surgery options including mastectomies and breast reconstruction, primarily reconstructive surgery involving a woman’s own fat tissue.

Furthermore, there is evidence of an increased awareness of reconstructive breast surgery using a patient’s own fat tissue rather than synthetic implants.
