3. Your concerns for surgery.
Don’t be afraid to share how you feel about undergoing this surgery. If you’re nervous or concerned about your results, tell your surgeon. He or she should be able to provide you with information and reassurance you need to feel better about undergoing this surgery.
4. Your desire to see a portfolio.
A portfolio is one of the best indicators of a breast reconstruction surgeon’s skills with this extremely important surgery. Ask to see results from other breast reconstruction patients; if the results don’t fit what you’re looking for, this may be a sign you need to find another plastic surgeon.
5. The honest truth.
You shouldn’t feel pressured into undergoing breast reconstruction surgery with a plastic surgeon who doesn’t understand your feelings or concerns. Pay attention to how you feel throughout your breast reconstruction consultation. If you don’t feel as though your surgeon cares about your concerns or feelings, find another surgeon who does.
