Preoperative Preparation before Breast Augmentation and Facelift

The best way to prepare your body for surgery is to take care of yourself.   Eat a well balanced diet, exercise regularly, and rest well.  I recommend a vitamin recovery system, such as vitamedica, to optimize your wound healing potential.   Also, refrain from any herbal supplements, first or second hand cigarette smoke, heavy alcohol intake, aspirin, or anti-inflammatory medications.

This should all be thoroughly discussed by your plastic surgeon and staff during your preoperative visit.  I wish you a safe and healthy recovery.

Prep for surgery

The key is to avoid any medications that can cause bleeding and avoid herbal medications.  Other than that you should ask your doctor for his preferences.
