Best candidate: patient with sagging, poorly shaped breasts without need for size changing (reduction or augmentation). Best results are obtained with patients with not too big breasts without mastopatic changes.
Necessary results of blood tests and other examinations: blood group, blood morphology and SR (sedimentation rate), coagulogram (APTT, INR), serum glucose and electrolytes levels, urine analysis, Ekg (only for patients older than 55 y.o.) HBs, HCV and HIV. Breast USG (not older than from previous year).
Examination except for breast USG can be carried out on arrival to Poland and their cost is then included in the procedure price. It should be, however, remembered that bad tests results can exclude surgery. The clinic is not held responsible for such a situation and does not return costs of a trip and stay in such cases.
