A personal consultation with your surgeon is the first step for any patient considering breast reduction. Dr McHugh will assess your physical and emotional health, discuss your aesthetic goals, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Issues you should be prepared to discuss during consultation with Dr McHugh include:
- Medical conditions, both past and present
- Current medications, including nutritional supplements and herbal remedies
- Previous surgeries
- Weight loss history and goals
During consultation, Dr McHugh will examine your breasts, evaluating their shape, size, skin elasticity and nipple position. He may also take photographs and measurements may for your medical record.
Some health plans cover breast reduction surgery when performed to relieve medical symptoms; however, coverage often depends on a significant amount of breast tissue being removed. In this instance you may also be entitled to a Medicare rebate.
