Consultation and Tests
Consultation and Examination
We discuss your reasons for pursuing cosmetic breast surgery, desired outcome and expected results. We conduct a thorough medical history, including your family history, general health status, previous operations, and any medications you may be taking. We examine your breasts and take measurements of their size, shape, the placement of your nipples and areolas. Photographs will be taken for your medical record. Finally, we recommend a course of treatment that meets your needs. We discuss the potential risks and complications, and your post-operation recovery.
Pre-surgical testing requires several blood tests to test your liver and kidney function, and to determine if you have any infection, blood disorder, or anemia, that may have gone previously undetected.
High-quality, digital X-ray images may be recommended to detect any underlying breast abnormalities that can not be felt in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease.
