Our plastic surgeons will meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss your breast surgery goals, talk about your options, and explain the details of the different procedures. At this first meeting, Dr. Wesley Schooler or Dr. David Buchanan will advise which procedure might best meet your needs and desires. They will strive to give you a realistic description of the degree of change or improvement that can be achieved, and to help you decide if surgery is a good option for you. It is important that prospective patients do not have unrealistic expectations about the potential changes that might be achieved, because we do not want you to be disappointed.
Confidence and Comfort
Your consultation will be conducted in a private, comfortable office environment. Spouses or friends are welcome to accompany you. You will be shown actual sample breast implants, and before-and-after photographs of some of our patients, to give you an idea of the possible improvements that might be made. Our surgeon will describe each aspect of your treatment, from the pre-operative educational stage, to the operation itself, and through the recovery period. He will answer all of your questions and address your concerns. You will also speak with, our Patient Coordinator, about scheduling details and financing options, if that would be helpful. If you schedule surgery, you will be provided with a detailed booklet describing your procedure, and the post-operative recovery period.
