I am going in for my first consult Nov. 28 2016. I would like to know what usually happens at your first consult?
The first consultation is not only about introducing yourself and explaining your desires but the surgeon is also trying to determine if you are a good candidate for the surgery with realistic expectations. The surgeon will have a series of questions as well as perform a breast exam to determine if you are a good candidate. It is understandable on your first visit that you may be nervous or anxious. Because of this it will be helpful for you to write down questions that you may have so you do not forget. Keep in mind hopefully you will meet the surgeon more than once prior to undergoing the surgery. This should allow you plenty of opportunity to get all of your questions answered. The surgeon you choose not only should be a board certified plastic surgeon but one that makes you feel comfortable and you trust to give you the results you are looking for.
