Planning your surgery
In your initial consultation, Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon will evaluate your health and explain which surgical techniques are most appropriate for you, based on the condition of your breasts and skin tone. If your breasts are sagging, Dr. Zevon may also recommend a breast lift.
Be sure to discuss your expectations frankly with Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon. He or she should be equally frank with you, describing your alternatives and the risks and limitations of each. You may want to ask Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon for a copy of the manufacturer’s insert that comes with the implant he or she will use — just so you are fully informed about it. And, be sure to tell Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon if you smoke, and if you’re taking any medications, vitamins, or other drugs.
Your surgeon should also explain the type of anesthesia to be used, the type of facility where the surgery will be performed, and the costs involved. Because most insurance companies do not consider breast augmentation to be medically necessary, carriers generally do not cover the cost of this procedure.
