Precautions Before Breast Lift with Implant & Thigh Lift?

I've read many different things online so had a few questions. I currently take adderall. How long before surgery do I stop? What are other foods & vitamins to avoid weeks prior? My surgery is May 15. Thanks

Pre-operative Instructions?

Thank you for the question.

Your plastic surgeon will have a long list of "do and don'ts" for you prior to surgery. Often these instructions are reviewed during a preoperative visit.

Best wishes with your upcoming surgery

Usually I recommend to my patients to stop aspirin and anti-inflammatories.  You should contact your surgeon to find out what he wants you to avoid.
