Thank you for your question. This does not sound too common to me unless there is some sort of serious infection or problem. Usually, one antibiotic is prescribed along with pain medications, stool softener, and an anti-nausea medication. I would definitely consult with your plastic surgeon and tell him your concerns with the side effects. Best of luck!Dhaval M.

I would consult your PS who performed your procedure and discuss the amount of antibiotics you are on. Unfortunately side effects are common however, if there is no infection present you may not need the amount that you are on. If you are dissatisfied with the response given you can always consult a second or third opinion.
Thank you for your question!

Hello, thanks for your question, in my practice I commonly use two different antibiotics after BBL, these are prophylactic antibiotics using to prevent infection, as your PS if these amount of antibiotics are needed and if any signs of infection are present in your case.

Antibiotics after surgery
Thank you for your question.
First off, how far out are you from surgery? It is difficult to answer your question without knowing that. With that being said, after surgery everyone is out an antibiotic as a preventative measure to make sure you don't have any problems. Unfortunately, they do come with side effects. If you are further than a week out and not having any problems, I would contact your surgeon to see if it is alright to stop the antibiotic. Good luck with recovery.
