Tampa Breast Reduction Preparation

During your breast reduction consultation, Dr. Luria will take the time necessary to understand your expectations and determine if the procedure is right for you. You will discuss the shape and how much breast tissue you would like removed, as well as the risks associated with the procedure. Dr. Luria will also talk about what type of incision he sees is best according to your needs.

You may be required to have a mammogram prior to your surgery depending on your medical history, age, and the last time you had it performed. You'll also get specific instructions on how to prepare for your surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications. Make sure to follow his instructions closely as they will help in your recovery process.

Breast reduction doesn't usually require a blood transfusion. However, if a large amount of breast tissues will be removed, you may be advised to have a unit of blood drawn ahead of time. That way, if a transfusion should be needed, your own blood can be used.

While you're making preparations for your breast reduction, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a few days post surgery if needed.
