Top 3 Tips for Avoiding Breast Reconstruction Complications
Here are my top three tips for minimizing complications after a breast reconstruction:
• If you are a smoker, stop smoking. That change is the most significant method for avoiding complications.
• If you are diabetic, maintain close glucose control. Eat a good regular diet, well-balanced with nutrients. In addition, vitamin C has been helpful.
• Preoperatively, we have our patients bathe with a chlorhexidine bath for three days prior to surgery.
