An in-depth consultation process will create a strong foundation for the breast reduction body contouring plastic surgery. During the consultation, the patient will have an opportunity to learn about various key aspects of the breast reduction procedure as well as the surgeon’s practice.
She should feel free to ask questions directly to the surgeon and clear all her doubts and concerns during the consultation.
The surgeon will utilize the consultation to gain insights about the patient’s current health status and her aesthetic goals in order to create an individualized breast reduction surgery plan. The consultation should ideally be scheduled sufficiently ahead of the surgery so that the patient gets enough time to prepare for it.

An important part of the breast reduction consultation process will be to assess the patient’s current health. Breast reduction is a significantly invasive procedure, and the patient should have the resilience to sustain general anesthesia and the surgery.
The surgeon will review the patient’s previous medical records as well as examine health and skin condition in the breast area. Specialized mammograms may be ordered in a few cases to determine candidacy.
During the breast reduction plastic surgery consultation, the patient will be required to disclose full information regarding any underlying medical concerns as well as any specific lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking or drugs.
Additionally, she will have to provide information about all prescription and non-prescription medications she may be currently using. To save time, the patient can prepare this list in advance and carry it along for her consultation with the surgeon.
At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will examine the breast anatomy of the patient and assess her skin type, thickness of the skin and tissue laxity, including the position of the underlying breast muscles.
Some patients may need liposuction of the breasts along with breast reduction. If the areolas are excessively large, the surgeon will discuss the possibility of resizing them along with breast reduction.
Personalized Surgery Plan
Depending on the patient’s fitness level and her anatomical and personal cosmetic requirements, the surgeon will create a customized breast reduction plan to match those needs. The type of surgical technique, the location and size of incisions, and the degree of correction required will be determined in close consultation with the patient.
Other Key Tasks
Breast reduction consultation process may involve a few more tasks such as taking images of the current condition of breasts, sharing before and after photos of other patients who have undergone the same procedure in the past, providing detailed instructions about pre-op preparation and post-op recovery, and informing the patient about the costs, insurance and financing options.
