A personal consultation is the first step for every patient considering breast surgery.
Dr. Delgado will ask you to discuss your concerns about your appearance. During this meeting, he will discuss your current conditions and what goals you wish to achieve. A physical examination will be done and your medical history reviewed to determine if surgery is the best option for you. If you are a good candidate, Dr. Delgado will explain:
Blood tests done within six months of your surgery date are required to assure Dr. Delgado and the anesthesiologist that surgery is a safe option for you. These include a CBC (Complete Blood Count) and possibly other tests, depending on your medical history. If you are 40 years old or older, a current mammogram is required and if you are 50 or older and an EKG (Electrocardiogram) is required.
You will be given a preoperative instruction booklet that will explain your medications and any preparations that you need to make at home. This booklet supplies you with a list of aspirin and aspirin-containing compounds, including anti-inflammatory products, all of which must be stopped two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. This precaution is taken to avoid excessive bleeding during surgery. (Tylenol may be safely taken during this time.) You will also be given a list of vitamins and homeopathic medications that you can opt to take prior to and after surgery to minimize bruising.
