I have decided to go ahead with breast asymmetry surgery so what happens next?
If you are happy with what you have been told and have decided upon your choice of surgeon you are then ready to book your surgery.
Most surgeons will advise you to take a couple of weeks to think about everything you’ve been told before making a decision. This ‘cooling off period’ is designed to enable you to arrive at a rational, informed decision.
So, use this time to really think about why you want this surgery. Talk to others who have undergone this or your family/friends. Talk it through with your partner. Weight up everything you have been told. This period is not designed to put you off from having surgery. It is for your benefit and will enable you to make a decision without feeling under pressure to do so.
Remember, you can change your mind at any time even on the day of surgery. Just be aware that the agreement form may state that you will incur a financial penalty if you do so.
After these two weeks you are ready to go back to your surgeon. If you decide to have surgery then your surgeon will discuss the whole process, from pre-surgery through to aftercare. He/she will ask you about your medical history and will perform some routine tests such as blood pressure, height, weight and a mammogram (breast x-ray) if applicable.
It is important that you are honest about your medical history. If you fail to mention anything because you feel it may prevent you having surgery then the consequences could be much worse.
If you have an allergy to a particular medication or have a long term illness then this could place you at greater risk. These can cause you to have an adverse reaction to a particular drug during surgery or to the anaesthetic itself.
Mentioning these does not always mean that you cannot have surgery. It may mean that there is an increased risk but it is manageable. It doesn’t mean automatic exclusion from breast asymmetry surgery.
So, tell your surgeon if you are taking any prescription medication or have had surgery before. He/she wants to make sure that you will be safe and well following your surgery. You will be advised as to what medication you can take before surgery and, what must be avoided.
Your surgeon will give you an agreement form to sign. Read through this very carefully, and if you see anything you don’t understand then ask. Once you are happy with this then go ahead and sign this form.
Your surgeon will also take a series of ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos which will show the results of the surgery. He/she will look to show these to other prospective patients. If you are not happy about this then let him know.
A date and time will be arranged. Your surgeon will also give you a list of guidelines – a type of ‘do’s and ‘don’ts’ before your surgery. Make sure you follow this carefully. They may seem a bit rigid or even daft but they are there to protect you.
It is also worth mentioning your surgery to your GP. He/she will not only be aware of this but can treat you instantly if something does go wrong.
