Plastic surgery consultations are a great way for patients to really get a better idea of the many benefits breast surgery procedures have to offer. Not only is it a time where you’ll get to ask any and all questions about the procedure of interest, but it’s a time when you get to know your potential surgeon face-to-face and are able to really get a feel for who they are, what they do, and if they could be the one entrusted with your care.
Over the past 22 years I’ve been a practicing breast surgeon, I find consultations are the optimal time to really hone in on a patient’s needs and have an honest dialogue about what it will take to get them the breast surgery results they most desire. For me personally, I like to start by asking my patients what they want to get out of their surgery. Perhaps they may come in with a preconceived idea of what they think is best but after extensive discussion may find that a different procedure would be better – or even combination procedures, depending on the preexisting nature of the breasts. At Southern Plastic Surgery (SPS), there are three popular types of breast surgeries I perform to correct a wide-range of concerns women have including:
- Breast Reduction – to reduce overly large breasts that don’t quite fit a patient’s body frame
- Breast Augmentation (Mammoplasty) – to increase the size of the breasts
- Breast Lift (Mastopexy) – to make the breasts sit higher on the chest
Each of these top breast surgeries have their own benefits and can be combined into one overall procedure if a patient is the right candidate. Watch as I explore each of these procedures, their key points, and how we decide which procedure is most appropriate for you:
The success of any surgical procedure is a team effort. It takes the expertise of an expert and the open communication of the patient to work towards a common goal of walking away from this journey a better version of themselves.
