CONSULTATION AND PREPARING FOR SURGERY

During your consultation be prepared to discuss:
Your surgical goals
Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments 
Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drug use
Previous surgeries

YOUR SURGEON WILL ALSO:
Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
Examine your breasts and take measurement of their size and shape, skin quality and placement of nipple and areolae
Take photographs
Discuss your options and recommend a course of treatment
Discuss likely outcomes of breast reconstruction and any risks or potential complications

PRIOR TO SURGERY, YOU MAY BE ASKED TO:
Get lab testing or medical evaluation
Take certain medication or adjust your current medications
Stop smoking
Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding

Breast reconstruction surgery is typically performed in a hospital setting, may include a short hospital stay and will likely use general anesthesia. Some follow-up procedures may be performed on an outpatient basis, and local anesthesia with sedation may be used. These decisions will be based on the requirements of your specific procedure and in consideration of your preferences and your doctor’s best judgment.

Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon questions, it’s very important to understand all aspects of your breast reconstruction. It’s excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
