Taking Viagra the Week Before Revision Rhinoplasty, Should I Postpone Surgery?

Seven months after my first surgery, my surgeon wants to refine the tip. However, 6 days before surgery I drank too much and lost a bet and took a Viagra pill (I know stupid) I am just wondering if I should postpone my surgery or will taking that pill not affect the healing? This is a serious question not a joke. I dont need a lecture on taking the pill, that was a stupid act on my part....just worried is all.

Alcohol and Viagra 1 week before a rhinoplasty revision should not be a problem, but this should be discussed with your surgeon. Regardless of my opinion follow his recommendations.

This type of question you should direct to your surgeon. Any deviation from the recommended presurgical routine should be discussed with your surgeon prior to surgery.
