Taking one pill should not effect you surgery. However, I would let your surgeon know prior surgery. Good luck.

    Almost all meds after 2 weeks will have cleared the system  There should not be any lingering effect on the body, and it poses little risk to breast augmentation.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Let your surgeon know, but this over the counter diet med should not have any bad effects on your anesthetic or surgery. All the best.
