Consultation is one of the most important stages in the breast lift cosmetic surgery procedure. To make the most of this consultation, the patient should be ready to engage proactively with the surgeon at this stage. The foundation for a successful breast lift surgery will be laid down during this stage.
The surgeon will prepare a unique breast surgery plan to match with the specific needs of the patient based on the information collected during the consultation. Dr. Bryson Richards is a board certified plastic surgeon providing breast lift and various other procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.
To begin with, the surgeon will perform a basic health exam to evaluate the patient’s suitability as a candidate for breast lift plastic surgery. The patient’s overall breast anatomy, amount of skin laxity in the breasts, type and quality of skin, and the size and position of nipples will be assessed. The surgeon may also order specialized mammograms in a few cases.
The detailed health records of the patient will be reviewed, and the surgeon will ask questions about any current medical conditions of the patient. Body weight and measurements will be checked to plan for a proportionate breast figure.
Reviewing Patient’s Goals
During the consultation, it is essential for the patient to be forthcoming about her personal cosmetic needs and aspirations with regard to her shape and appearance of breasts. Based on her feedback, the surgeon will determine the extent of correction required and whether breast lift may have to be performed together with breast implants or as a standalone procedure.
The patient should feel free to carry images from magazines or websites to show to the surgeon about the kind of breast figure she desires. The surgeon will take her inputs into account while creating a custom breast lift surgery plan tailored to meet her specific requirements.
At the time of the consultation, the surgeon may present before the patient breast lift before and after photos. The patient can review the photos to understand what to expect and what not to expect from the procedure.
The surgeon will also answer the patient’s questions and concerns on all aspects related to the procedure. Some surgeons may also provide testimonials of past patients to let the patient know about their experiences with regard to breast lift procedure.
As part of preparation for breast lift, the patient will have to follow a few do’s and don’ts. Certain types of medications and nutrition supplements may have to be stopped for a few days before the surgery. Smokers will be required to stop smoking for a certain time period prior to the procedure.
The surgeon may also guide the patient about arranging for transportation on the day of surgery, hiring a nurse for aftercare if required, and applying for at least a week’s leave from the workplace well in advance. The patient will also learn about the estimated costs of the breast lift procedure during the initial consultation.
