During your initial consultation, Dr. Agha will inquire about your general health status, pre-existing health conditions, prior surgeries, medications that you are taking, allergies, and smoking habits. Relevant questions in the history include:
It is important that you be thorough when providing the requested information as they help to prevent complications during your care. When asked about medications, be sure to include any diet pills, vitamin or herbal preparations, since some vitamins and herbal medications can affect your blood pressure and clotting ability. Honesty regarding your smoking and alcohol use is also very important, as these may have a profound impact on your recovery period and your ability to heal following your procedure.
After reviewing your medical, breast and family history, Dr. Agha will discuss your concerns, priorities and motivations for pursuing plastic surgery. Dr. Agha will then proceed with examining your breast, and making appropriate measurements of your breast parameters. He will assess multiple factors including, breast symmetry, form, shape, inframammary fold position, degree of sagging, and skin quality. He will then tailor a treatment plan that will attempt to address as many of aspects of the asymmetry as possible.
He will subsequently provide you with information on different options, the advantages and disadvantages of the each procedure, and potential risk and complications of each surgery. Finally, considering your input, Dr Agha will plan an appropriate procedure (s) to best suit your anatomy, and meet your desires and expectations.
At the completion of your consultation, you will be given a written estimate of the cost of your procedure. At this time, you will also have the option to schedule your procedure if you so choose. You are encouraged to bring your spouse, significant other, family member, or a friend to your consultation.
