Preparing for Tummy Tuck and Brazilian Butt Lift


You should have discussions with our doctor and their staff about preparations for surgery.  You will need to consider your preparation in terms of medial clearance and making sure that you have the proper medications to take and know which ones not to take prior to surgery.  You should also prepare your bedroom and kitchen so that you have have comfortable clothes, old sheets on the bed, etc and also prepared meals and plenty of fluids for drinking after surgery.  You should also arrange for someone to help you the day or two after surgery until you are able to care for yourself.  You talk with your surgeon about proper post surgical garments to have available after surgery as well.  Basically, your surgeon's office should give you a pre-operative packet listing everything that you should do.  If you do not feel prepared, then I suggest that you make another preoperative appointment to clear up any misunderstandings.


Good luck.
