What should I expect at my breast surgery consultation?

Whatever type of breast surgery you are considering, be it an augmentation, an uplift, a reduction or maybe even a reconstruction, it is not at all uncommon to be feeling apprehensive about your consultation. It is, however, your opportunity to meet your surgeon and to judge whether you will feel comfortable in their care, that you are confident about their credentials and ability, and that you trust them not only to look after you but to be honest in their advice, too.

What will happen at my breast surgery consultation?

During your consultation with Milton Keynes-based surgeon Mr Sudip Ghosh, you will firstly talk about your objectives and your motivations for seeking breast surgery. Mr Ghosh will take your medical history before conducting a physical examination. After assessing your frame, Mr Ghosh will tailor a surgical plan to your individual needs, explaining why a particular technique or type/size/shape of implant is most suited to achieving your particular goal. He will go on to explain the potential risks and complications of the procedure, what action you will need to take beforehand (such as avoiding nicotine) and describe the various stages of recovery. Mr Ghosh will also give you a clear idea of how much downtime you should allow yourself – before emphasising the importance of giving yourself ample time to heal.

Is there anything I can do to prepare?

The breast surgery consultation is a crucial step for both surgeon and patient, to establish what the goals are and how they can be achieved. In order to get the most out of your consultation, think ahead about what you would like to take away from it. Previous patients at Mr Ghosh’s Milton Keynes breast surgery clinic have found preparing a list of questions and concerns beforehand helpful, and Mr Ghosh encourages his patients to ask as many questions as they need.
