What to Expect During a Breast Reconstruction Consultation

Breast cancer diagnosis leaves women with many questions, plans to make, and decisions to consider. After consultation with doctors and specialists, patients may decide to pursue breast reconstruction. To get the most from their breast reconstruction consultation, women should educate themselves about what they can expect.

The primary components of a breast reconstruction consultation at my California practice are: an explanation of breast reconstruction options, essential factors to consider before deciding on breast reconstruction, and an opportunity for women to ask any questions they may have.

We may delve into specifics such as:

  • Timing of breast reconstruction
  • Types of breast reconstruction
  • Implant options
  • Obtaining insurance coverage
  • Preparing for surgery
  • Recovering from surgery
  • Results

This is only the beginning of a close, communicative, and trusting relationship. Subsequent appointments will allow us to make specific plans and proceed at each woman”s comfort level.
