As you may have read in part 1 of our series on Breast Revision Surgery, there are many factors that can drive individuals to pursue breast revision surgery. One of those factors is improper pre-surgery analysis by the original surgeon. Improper analysis can result in unrealistic expectations by the patient, or worse, pursuing a procedure that won’t fully correct the patient’s problems.
While there is no way for a surgeon to predict exactly what the outcome of a surgery will be, there are some telling variables that can dictate a good bit about surgical results (i.e.- skin elasticity will tell how skin might appear post-surgery, genetics will dictate how skin is likely to appear as it ages, and any future plans for pregnancy could potentially dictate the type of breast procedure recommended.) The mood of your consultation should be your first indicator as to whether a Plastic Surgeon does a satisfactory job of examining you and addressing your needs- an interview for a Surgeon if you will.
The consultation should act as a planning session. Dr. Namnoum spends time with every patient to address any concerns or reservations about a procedure. He also takes the time to discuss proper aftercare measures in an effort to avoid any complications (i.e.- capsular contracture, bottoming out, etc.) You should feel comfortable asking your surgeon questions. Any surgical procedure is just that, surgery, and should not be taken without due consideration. If you would like to schedule a consultation or wish to learn more about the Breast procedures offered by Dr. Namnoum call (404) 256-1311 or visit his website.
