For San Francisco Bay Area women who decide to proceed with a reduction mammoplasty surgical procedure, it is not unusual for them to ask if other procedures can be done at the same time.
Dr. Delgado does multiple procedures frequently as long as the patient is healthy. For example, the popular Mommy Makeover can include a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction. Men who elect to have male breast reduction surgery, known as gynecomastia, also frequently combine additional procedures.
Breast reduction is usually done as an outpatient procedure, however, if additional procedures are going to be added, an overnight stay will most likely be necessary. It is not surprising that many women choose to add procedures so that they can take advantage of their time off for recovery, and to save time and money. The amount of surgery to be done will depend on the patient’s health and Dr. Delgado’s evaluation of what is appropriate.
Dr. Delgado has his own private surgery center that offers his patients the best concierge care. Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center (MCSC) is accredited by Medicare and the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (Quad A), meaning it meets the highest of standards. In the rare event of a medical emergency, Novato Community Hospital is just steps away.
Patients who stay overnight will have a registered nurse who is certified in “advanced cardiac life support” (ACLS) and an additional staff member for further comfort and safety. The surgery center has its own entrance providing privacy for Dr. Delgado’s patients.
