Breast Augmentation: Q&AAsk a Question
Medications to Avoid 1 Week Before and After Breast Augmentation?
I'm currently using the following medicines. Do I need to stop using them 1 week before/after breast augmentation?
(1) Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%) that I apply on my eyelids
(2) Triple Antibiotic Ointment that I apply on two wounds on my ankles (bacitracin zinc, neomycin, & polymyxin-B ointment)
(3) Acne cream that I apply on my face.
Currently, I have many inflammatory acnes on face that are red and swollen with pus. I also have 2 wounds on my ankle ~size of a quarter. Will it increase likelihood of surgery infection or capsular contracture? Is there anything I should do to prevent complication?
