Milwaukee’s Largest Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa Practice Empowers Breast Cancer Patients

Illume Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa, the Milwaukee area’s largest cosmetic surgery and medspa practice, works to empower breast cancer patients after their cancer diagnosis with tailored, state-of-the-art reconstructive surgery.

“Illume is different because we tailor the experiences to each patient’s needs and desires for their reconstruction by understanding their concerns,” said Dr. Jenna Cusic. “We work with the patient one-on-one to create a collaborative plan of care. Breast reconstruction is a patient population that comes in during a very vulnerable state and I want to provide a safe space that helps them along their journey.”

Illume prioritizes scheduling consultations for breast cancer patients at one of their two locations in Glendale and Waukesha. All options for reconstruction surgery, including what to look forward to regarding further stages or expectations are discussed during the initial consultation along with any questions a patient may have. By prioritizing local breast cancer patients, Illume strives to have them ready for their procedure and in the operating room within four weeks of the initial consultation. Post-surgery care includes surgeons and their team remaining involved in the recovery process with check-ins and other in-home services that are beneficial to the patient’s well-being and ongoing care.

In addition to tailored care, the surgeons at Illume Cosmetic Surgery maintain a strong relationship with the ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Breast Center that has lasted over two decades with hundreds of cases performed. Co-founder of Illume, Dr. Christopher Hussussian is currently the Chief of Surgery for ProHealth Waukesha leading the surgical department and working collaboratively with the physicians within Illume to provide the highest quality breast reconstruction in the Milwaukee area.

“Breast reconstruction surgery is one of the ways we continue to give back to others in and out of our practice and I think the surgery is a valuable service we provide our local Milwaukee community,” said Dr. Timothy Bruce, who joined the Illume team in 2022. “It’s satisfying to help patients get through their difficult diagnosis and come out on the other side of it feeling good about how they feel not only on the inside but also the outside.”

To support breast cancer patients beyond the surgical practice, Illume is offering a special Buy One Gift One Program on Thursday, October 20. For every MicroPeel with Facial service sold on October 20, Illume will gift one facial service to a patient enrolled in the services provided by local breast cancer-centric nonprofits like After Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD), Susan G Komen Milwaukee and local hospital partners.

“We are so grateful that Illume has selected ABCD to benefit from their generous Buy One Give One promotion for breast cancer patients and survivors,” said Ashely Kopca, Executive Assistant at ABCD, a national breast cancer organization headquartered in Glendale, Wis. that provides free, customized one-to-one emotional support to empower anyone impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis. “We highly value partners like Illume who understand the importance of emotional health and self-care like we do.”
