Do you need to stop coffee and alcohol before surgery ?
as long as you do not drink a crazy number of cups of coffee which can give you irregular heart beats, 1 or 2 cups a day is fine.
and same for alcohol: 1 glass a day is fine.
I tell my patients no crazy partying the night before surgery so they do not have a hangover, and are dehydrated...same for drugs, by the way ! but we can do drug testing in the hospital pre-op...
we do a lot of BBL, and most patients are reasonable when it comes for cosmetic surgery.
