Breast Augmentation Surgery Consultation
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 include:
A detailed breast history of masses or lesions
Results of a mammogram for those of 35 years of age or more
Family history of breast cancers
Pregnancies and their effects on your breasts
Previous surgical procedures on the breast or abdomen
A detailed history of current medical problems, e.g. heart disease, diabetes, history of thromboembolic disease, connective tissue disorders, and wound healing problems
It is important that you be thorough when providing the requested information as it helps 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 breasts 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 help you to choose your desired implant size.
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 to best suit your anatomy as well as 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. Prior to surgery, you may be asked to obtain specific lab tests and a medical evaluation.
