Welcome to our comprehensive guide on breast consultation. If you’re considering any type of breast procedure, whether it’s augmentation, reduction, or reconstruction, you’ve come to the right place. We understand that making decisions about your body can be overwhelming, and that’s why we’re here to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice.

Understanding the Breast Consultation Process

When considering a breast procedure such as a boob job or breast augmentation, it is crucial to start with a thorough breast consultation. This process plays a vital role in ensuring that you are making an informed decision and that you and your surgeon are on the same page regarding your goals and expectations.

During a breast consultation at Clinica Renueva, you will have the opportunity to discuss your desires, concerns, and questions with a qualified surgeon. This initial meeting serves as a crucial step in understanding the possibilities and limitations of the procedure, as well as assessing whether it is the right option for you.

Here’s what you can expect during a breast consultation:

  1. Discussion of Goals: The surgeon will take the time to understand your desired outcomes. This includes factors such as size, shape, symmetry, and overall aesthetics. It’s important to be open and honest about your expectations to ensure realistic goals are set.
  2. Medical Evaluation: Our surgeon will conduct a thorough evaluation of your current breast health and overall medical history. This evaluation helps identify any potential issues or contraindications that may affect the procedure or your eligibility.
  3. Physical Examination: A physical examination of your breasts will be conducted. This examination helps the surgeon assess the current size, shape, and condition of your breasts and determine the best approach to achieve your desired outcome.
  4. Options and Recommendations: Based on your goals, medical history, and physical examination, the surgeon will discuss the various breast procedure options available to you. They may recommend a specific procedure, such as breast augmentation, or suggest alternative options like breast reduction or breast reconstruction.
  5. Risks and Complications: Our surgeon will discuss the potential risks and complications associated with the breast procedure you are considering. It’s important to have a clear understanding of the potential risks involved in making an informed decision.
  6. Questions and Clarifications: This is your time to ask any questions or seek clarifications regarding the procedure, recovery process, expected outcomes, and any other concerns you may have.

Types of Breast Procedures to Consider

When it comes to breast consultation, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of the different types of procedures that you may consider. Whether you are looking to enhance, reduce, or reconstruct your breasts, there are options available to help you achieve your desired goals.

Here are a few common breast procedures to consider during your consultation:

  1. Breast Augmentation
    Breast augmentation, often referred to as a “boob job,” is a surgical procedure that aims to increase the size and fullness of the breasts. This is achieved by inserting implants either above or below the chest muscles. During your consultation, we will discuss the various types and sizes of implants, incision options, and the potential risks and benefits associated with this procedure.
  2. Breast Reduction
    Breast reduction is a procedure designed to decrease the size and volume of overly large breasts. This surgery is often recommended for individuals who experience discomfort, pain, or limitations in physical activities due to the size of their breasts. During your consultation, we will discuss the techniques involved in breast reduction, the scarring that may occur, and the potential improvements in your overall quality of life.
  3. Breast Reconstruction
    Breast reconstruction is a procedure that rebuilds the shape and appearance of the breast, typically after a mastectomy or other breast surgery. This procedure aims to restore symmetry and improve self-esteem for individuals who have undergone breast removal due to cancer or other medical conditions. During your consultation, we will discuss the various reconstructive options available, including the use of implants or the transfer of autologous tissue.

It’s important to note that each individual’s goals and unique circumstances will determine the most suitable breast procedure. During your breast consultation, we will assess your specific needs and discuss the options that will best achieve your desired outcomes. We will carefully evaluate your medical history, physical health, and personal preferences to ensure a tailored approach for optimal results.

Dr. Was very honest about the procedure I wanted. I came in to get a BBL and he told me I didn't have enough fat to transfer. Instead of just telling me what I wanted to hear he was very honest in not recommending the procedure.
