Breast Reduction Consultation

What is a breast reduction consultation?

A breast reduction consultation is a meeting where you can discuss your desire to have your breast size reduced surgically.

While some women wish to increase their breast size through augmentation or change the shape of their breasts with uplift surgery, for many other women, the problem is breasts that are uncomfortably large.

It could be that weight loss would reduce the size of your breasts without you needing to undergo breast reduction surgery. Your provider at Georgia Breast Care can discuss any weight issues with you and how best to lose weight. 

If you choose to have a breast reduction operation, it’s vital to spend time discussing the reasons for your decision and how best to achieve greater comfort. This is what the breast reduction consultation is all about.

What happens at a breast reduction consultation?

Some aspects of your breast reduction consultation at Georgia Breast Care are much the same as any other consultation with your health care provider.

You discuss your medical history and any previous problems you’ve had, such as breast infections or breast lumps. It’s also important for your provider to have a clear picture of any relevant family history.

You should be open and honest about your reasons for wanting breast reduction surgery. Giving them as much info as possible will help them guide you on the best plan of action.

They also need to know about the way your breasts feel physically, and the problems you experience because of the size of your breasts. For instance, heavy breasts can cause problems like chronic back and neck pain and make it hard to exercise.

What’s the next stage of the breast reduction consultation process?

After discussing your reasons for wanting breast reduction surgery, you and your provider at Georgia Breast Care can agree about whether to go ahead with the procedure.

Your provider might take photographs of your breasts and measure them. They go over the procedure with you, and assess how much tissue needs to be removed to achieve the desired outcome.

Your provider needs to know about your lifestyle, including whether you smoke and what medications you take. For your breasts to heal properly it’s important to quit smoking at least before and after the surgery.

You might have to stop taking certain medications as well, like aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs. Your provider goes through everything with you in detail so you know exactly how to prepare for your surgery.
