A personal consultation is the first step for every patient considering a Breast Lift. This appointment can take place at either Dr. Delgado’s San Francisco office or his Marin County office.
At this meeting, Dr. Delgado will have the patient describe her concerns about the appearance of her breasts. Sometimes he will use digital photography and computer imaging to discuss any asymmetries that are present. He will also discuss where the nipple should be positioned. In addition, he will discuss the variables that affect the individual procedure, such as age, breast size, breast shape, the condition of the skin and the possibility of a breast implant.
Depending on the patient’s age and family history, Dr. Delgado may advise a mammogram before surgery.
A detailed preoperative booklet is given to each patient. The booklet provides pre- and post-operative instructions, including medications to be taken prior to surgery. Patients are instructed to avoid aspirin and aspirin-containing products, including anti-inflammatory products, for two weeks prior to surgery as these substances interfere with a patient’s clotting ability. The preoperative instructions include a comprehensive list of the medications to avoid. Tylenol™ (acetaminophen) is noted as safe to take during this time. Suggestions are given for homeopathic and vitamin supplements which are known to promote healing and reduce bruising. These can be taken prior to and following surgery, if the patient so desires.
