Can I Start Latisse if I Plan on Getting a Breast Augmentation?

I plan on getting a breast augmentation done in the next month or so. Is it okay if start Latisse next week and continue to use it during my recovery? Or should I wait until after my breast augmentation and for how long? Thank You!

Latisse and surgery

You can definitely start Latisse now. However, you should let your anesthesiologist know you are applying Latisse before your surgery, as medications can sometimes interact with the anesthetics to be used, although I do not believe there would be any interaction. There would be no harm in holding it and resuming after the surgery if your surgeon prefers this.

Using Latisse prior to a breast augmentation


There is no reason that you could not start Latisse prior to a breast augmentation.  Latisse is not systemically absorbed.
