Laboratory Studies

Only routine preoperative laboratory studies are required as mandated by the age and health of the patient.


Imaging Studies

Mammograms are the main imaging studies required, especially in middle-aged patients. As a general guideline, all patients aged 40 years or older should undergo baseline mammograms prior to surgery, a postoperative new baseline mammogram, and yearly postoperative mammograms.
