Amoxicillin before surgery
This is not a problem so long as there is no active infection present. I would speak to your PS before you proceed. Good Luck

Ask a doctor
Ance medication and Breast Augmentation
Amoxicillin is an antibiotic. It should not adversely affect your surgery or your outcome but it is always wise to notify your surgeon of all the medications that you are taking so that he/she can advise you.
Amoxicillin Before Breast Augmentation
Let your surgeon know all medications you are currently taking. You should be fine with amoxicillin.
Good luck and best wishes,
Is taking Amoxicillin before breast augmentation safe?
The use of amoxicillin should not be a problem. It will be important that you do not have any source of “active infection”; if so, make sure your plastic surgeon is aware. Best wishes.
Amoxicillin should be ok
You should be fine with your Amoxicillin. Just let your surgeon know because he or she may give you additional antibiotics around the time of your surgery.
Thank you for the question.
It's recommended that you stop any aspirin based products before surgery to prevent any excessive bleeding during surgery, how ever amoxicillin it's an antibiotic that does not affect in anyway before or after. Notify your Doctor of all medications taken before.
Will Amoxicillin Taken for Acne Cause Any Problems for Breast Aug Surgery or Anesthesia?
No, but the important point for anyone having surgery, like this inquiry, is to be sure to tell your doctor every medicine you are taking. Surprises can occur and should not be discovered at the last minute. Aspirin-containing and non-steroidal meds like ibuprofen are definitely on the do not take before surgery list. But there are others such as herbal medications, seizure meds, chronic pain meds, which may interact with anesthesia. Allergies should be discussed, including allergies to shellfish, iodine, soaps, latex, tape and what kind of reactions happened with exposure.
You should be able to continue the amoxicillin, just make sure your surgeon is aware of all medications you are on before surgery. Good luck!
Taking this should have no adverse affects on your surgery. But do let your surgeon know about your meds and any changes. It might affect the choice of antibiotics during your operation.
All the best.
Avoid blood thinners before breast augmentation.
Avoid blood thinners before breast augmentation. Amoxicillin is not a blood thinner. I think it will actually help decrease your chance of implant infection by controlling your acne.
