What 'Other Supplements'?
Although Arnica Montana is safe to take, the vast majority of studies show that it is ineffective. As for other supplements, you would need to be more specific; some are outright harmful prior to surgery. Regardless, there is no reason to take any at all as none are effective in improving healing.
Best of luck.

Ask your plastic surgeon about all supplements prior to your procedure.
Supplements prior to surgery
Different surgeons have different protocols for supplements before and after different surgeries. As an example, we have a printed brochure we provide our patients regarding "do and don'ts" and what to take and not to take.
Be sure you choose a surgeon board certified by "The American Board of Plastic Surgery", check her/his reviews, before and after photos, credentials, experience, and have a quality consultation.
You surgeon should be preferably a member of "American Society of Plastic Surgeons" and a member of "American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery" to indicate cosmetic plastic surgery is the main focus of their practice and they have been evaluated to perform high volume and quality, honest aesthetic surgery and adhere to a code of ethics.
