Dr. Cambeiro will perform a thorough medical and surgical history as well as a focused physical exam. This will include any signs of abnormal secondary sexual development, history of alcohol or marijuana abuse, and a careful drug history. If other signs of either liver or endocrine malfunction seem evident, then a referral to a qualified medical specialist such as an endocrinologist may be warranted. In most cases involving adult males, either a history of anabolic steroid use or no cause at all can be identified. In most cases, breast reduction surgery is the only effective form of therapy.
In addition, he will need to know all of your medical conditions, current medication regime including vitamins and herbal remedies. He will need to know your drug allergies as well as any reactions to medications you have had in the past. If you smoke, you will need to quit four weeks before your breast reduction surgery and not to resume for at least four weeks after your surgery. Smoking decreases blood circulation to the skin and impedes healing.
Your height and weight will be recorded at each office visit — please note that our office is in Henderson, Nevada, just outside of Las Vagas. In addition, he will assess the tone of the skin your chest and determine the best means to remove the redundant tissue. In most case liposuction can be used to correct the excessive chest tissue. He will then discuss the technique of liposuction in detail.
Furthermore, Dr. Cambeiro will explain the anesthesia he will use during your breast reduction procedure. He will address the risks involved in the surgery as well as your expectations of the overall outcome. You will also be given a cost estimate for your procedure. In most cases, your insurance plan may cover the breast reduction procedure, but you should check your policy to make sure.
