When you arrive to your consultation, you will be greeted by our staff and given an iPad mini to check in. Once you are checked in, you will be brought to our consultation room. The initial part of the consultation is designed to understand exactly what your goals are and what kind of result you are hoping for. We'll ask you questions about what kind of symptoms you have been experiencing, like back or neck pain. If you have tried previous medications or treatments for your symptoms, such as Advil, chiropractic care, accupuncture or injections, make sure to provide this information.
Once Dr. Diaz has a good understanding of what your symptoms and medical history are, he will then take detailed measurements of your chest and breast. These measurements will help him determine which procedure will be best for you.
Pictures of your chest will then be taken with the Vectra 3D System. This is the most advanced way to simulate your result. This system creates a 3D image of your breasts and allows Dr. Diaz to show you what your breasts may look like after surgery.
Once this is done, Dr. Diaz then reviews everything you need to know about the surgery and the recovery process. The consultation is then completed. The entire consultation lasts approximately one hour. The last step is to meet with our patient coordinator to discuss pricing, or insurance payment, and scheduling.
