New York City Plastic Surgeon Gives Pre-Consultation Guidelines for Breast Reduction Surgery

Dr. Broumand Raises Awareness About Breast Reduction Surgery and Its Benefits While Preparing Potential Candidates for Their In-Office Consultations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - Board-certified New York City plastic surgeon Stafford R. Broumand wants to raise awareness about breast reduction surgery. While breast augmentation and breast lift procedures receive a good deal of media coverage, breast reduction surgery is often left out. However, many of Dr. Broumand's patients visit his private practice with complaints of pain resulting from bra straps or back and neck pain. For these women, breast reduction surgery may be the solution to their problems.

In a recent blog post titled Virtual Breast Reduction Consultation with NYC Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Broumand outlines the various reasons women begin to consider breast reduction surgery as well as the many advantages the surgery may yield. In addition to back pain, women considering breast reduction procedures often complain of cosmetic concerns such as breast asymmetry or breasts that are not proportionate to the patient's body frame.

Dr. Broumand points out that women considering breast reduction simply want to feel comfortable in their own skin--and Dr. Broumand says in his experience, these patients often experience this feeling even more strongly than women seeking breast augmentation or breast lift procedures. The benefits of breast reduction surgery extend beyond the relief of physical discomfort and cosmetic enhancement, and include an elevated sense of self-esteem and increased confidence.

During the consultation process, Dr. Broumand's main goal is to understand why each unique patient is seeking out breast reduction surgery. If he and his patients can clearly communicate the reasons behind their decision for surgery, Dr. Broumand is better able to plan and customize the procedure to produce results that align with each patient's expectations.

According to Dr. Broumand's online virtual consultation, potential patients benefit from first talking with close friends or family members to clarify and articulate their unique reasons for pursuing breast reduction. Dr. Broumand also suggests those considering the surgery to keep a list of questions with them as a reference point for these conversations. When prospective patients keep a list of their questions and take notes during their initial research on the procedure, they will be better equipped to convey their desires and expectations during their consultation with a plastic surgeon. Dr. Broumand encourages all of his New York City plastic surgery patients to thoroughly research their procedure in preparation for their live consultation so they can address all of their unanswered questions with the surgeon.
