In your initial consultation, it’s important to discuss your expectations frankly with Dr. Lesavoy, and to listen to his opinion. Every patient – and every physician, as well – has a different view of what is a desirable size and shape for breasts.
Dr. Lesavoy will examine your breasts and measure them while you’re sitting or standing. He will discuss the variables that may affect the procedure – such as your age, the size and shape of your breasts, and the condition of your skin – and whether an implant is advisable. You should also discuss where the nipple and areola will be positioned; they’ll be moved higher during the procedure, and should be approximately even with the crease beneath your breast.
Dr. Lesavoy should describe the breast lift procedure in detail, explaining its risks and limitations and making sure you understand the scarring that will result. Dr. Lesavoy will also explain the anesthesia to be used, the type of facility where the surgery will be performed, and the costs involved.
Don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Lesavoy any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and concerns about the results.
