On this page you will find essential information about preparing for your breast reconstruction surgery.
Being prepared can increase comfort and convenience during the recovery process.
There are many things to discuss during your office visit. Dr. Dec will ask you about your concerns and general state of health. He will examine you breasts and any other areas that may require treatment. You will go over a series of before and after photos of patients with a similar body type who underwent a similar procedure. You will learn about all the risks, benefits, alternatives, expected recovery, and long term results after having a breast reconstruction surgery. There will be time to ask any questions you may have. By the end of your consultation you will have a more complete understanding of breast reconstruction surgery and all your options. This will help you make a truly informed decision about your health.
Following your consultation you will meet with one of our surgical coordinators to go over the steps for scheduling surgery.
