A personal consultation is the first step for every patient considering a Breast Reduction. This appointment can be scheduled at either Dr. Delgado’s San Francisco office or his Marin County office.
During the appointment, Dr. Delgado will inquire as to the patient’s concerns about her appearance and the impact her breasts are having on her daily life. During the consultation, Dr. Delgado will also conduct a routine breast exam.
The following issues will be discussed:
The patient is provided with a booklet that supplies detailed pre- and post-operative instructions, including the use of medications prior to surgery. For example, it is required that aspirin and aspirin-containing products be discontinued, including anti-inflammatory products, two weeks before and two weeks after surgery, as these products have a negative effect on the patient’s clotting ability. The pre-operative instructions include a complete list of medications that could pose hazards for the patient and therefore, should be avoided. However, the patient is reassured that Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be safely taken during this time. The booklet also provides a list of vitamins and homeopathic preparations that promote healing and limit bruising which a patient can opt to use before and after her surgery.
