Women who have made the decision to proceed with a reduction mammoplasty, also known as breast reduction surgery, have some important decisions to make and at the top of the list is choosing the right surgeon. You want a surgeon that is Board certified in Plastic Surgery and a breast reduction specialist. A close second is the facility where the surgery is to take place. As a member of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the surgeon is required to operate only in a certified or state licensed ambulatory surgery center or hospital. This is for the safety of the patient.

Ask for a tour of the surgical facility, note if it is organized and clean. See if the attitude of the staff is respectful and professional.

Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center (MCSC) is not only state licensed, but is certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (Quad A) which means it meets the highest standards of safety. The accrediting organization verifies that national standards are met and maintained such as; reviewing policies and procedures, safety, equipment, etc. They also verify that the surgeon has hospital privileges should an emergency arise. Credentials of all staff members are verified.

Complimenting Dr. Delgado’s highly trained staff is Dr. Randy Gaynor. Dr. Gaynor is a Board Certified Anesthesiologist who has been with MCSC since its inception in 2001. Dr. Gaynor’s popularity with the patients is well documented with reports of his kind and caring manner. It has been noted that he spends a great deal of time with each patient explaining what they can expect in surgery and answer any questions they may have. He is also available to patients by phone or in person prior to surgery to address any concerns.

MCSC offers the patient privacy with a separate entrance directly into the surgery center avoiding the waiting room of the main office. Should a patient require an overnight stay, no less than two caregivers will be provided with one being a Registered Nurse with post operative training including advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) certification. With only one operating room with the highest of standards, the incidence of infection is very low to almost non-existent; infection and complications caused by infection are some of the greatest risks in surgery. Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center offers the ultimate in concierge medical care, serving the San Francisco Bay Area including; Marin County, Sonoma, and Napa since 2001.

It is getting harder to get approval for breast reduction surgery (also known as reduction mammoplasty); as things are changing with medical insurance companies. Dr. Delgado, a breast reduction surgery specialist explains to his patients that many policies now have an exclusion clause or their criteria are difficult to meet. After all avenues have been exhausted and insurance is not possible, what other alternatives are there?

Some San Francisco Bay Area patients take out an equity line of credit on their home which usually will get them the best interest rate, some use credit cards, although the interest rate can be quite high, but if you plan on paying it off quickly, this can be the fastest and easiest way.

We accept Care Credit for financing and are able to help patients apply right in the office, or you can apply online. Care Credit offers many different plans depending on the amount you want to borrow and the length of time for the loan. We have many patients that have been happy with this resolution so that they can proceed with their breast reduction surgery.
