Avosant Surgical Associates
LA Breast Reduction Experts


When you finally decide that you want more information about breast reduction surgery and are ready to see a board-certified plastic surgeon, the simple question to ask is "Where do I begin?" The simple answer? A consultation...


A consultation with Dr. Daniel Golshani is your first step to learn how a breast reduction can improve the appearance of your breasts and relieve pain, discomfort, and any associated symptoms you may have resulting from large, heavy breasts. Dr. Golshani's consultations are designed to educate you about breast reduction surgery and they include a discussion of your goals, the options available to you, the likely outcomes of breast reduction, any risks or potential complications, and the prescribed course of treatment most suitable for you.

Consultations also include a physical examination of your breasts, including the shape, size, nipple position, signs of breast cancer and current breast conditions as well as signs of skin problems, posture abnormalities and other signs associated with having large, heavy breasts. Measurements of how much estimated weight to remove from each breast, and photographs of your chest and shoulders may be taken to be sent to your insurance company for approval of coverage.

To make your first visit with us as comprehensive and informative as possible, you will be asked for your complete medical history including all current medications, allergies, past surgeries and hospitalizations, family medical history, current health conditions (i.e. high blood pressure, infections, diabetes, psychological problems etc.). If your medical history is extensive, you may want to write everything down prior to your initial consultation. In addition, in order for Avosant Surgical Associates and Dr. Golshani to have a complete picture of your specific situation, you will be asked for your family history of breast problems and your height, weight and correct bra size.

It is important to remember that this is your opportunity to describe the troublesome problems you are having and your past efforts of treating them including conservative management such as weight loss and physical therapy. This is the time to make the surgeon aware of your goals and concerns including the size and shape you may have in mind and even religious, ethnic or cultural concerns. If you are concerned with forgetting to ask your questions, come prepared with a list of them so you can listen carefully without having to worry about overlooking anything! By the end of the appointment, you should have a good sense of our ability to help you. We understand that this is your decision to make and will never pressure you to undergo breast reduction surgery. Let us be your guide, answer your questions and provide you with all the information you need so you feel comfortable and excited about breast reduction surgery.

The relationship between you and your surgeon is very important. Yes, your plastic surgeon’s credentials, experience and surgical skills and your own preparation are key factors in determining the success of your breast reduction surgery, but so is this relationship. During your initial consultation with Dr. Daniel Golshani, you should feel free to open up to your surgeon and ask questions and voice any concerns that you or even your family may have. Remember, you get to choose your surgeon. So, why not choose one who is understanding, empathetic and honest? At Avosant Surgical Associates, we want to make sure that you feel comfortable with us and that you trust us. We think it’s important that you get to know our entire staff as much as it’s important for us to get to know you. We’re here to listen, and help to make your breast reduction experience as pleasant and smooth as possible.
