Two weeks should not be a probem. Before resuming, do check with your plastic surgeon at the post op visit, and your prescribing physician. Best of luck with your surgery.

Your prescribing physician or the dermatologist is best to determine when you can restart your medications.

Starting Medication after Breast Augmentation?

Thank you for the question.

 From the breast augmentation standpoint, there should be no contraindication to the use of this medication. However, like every  medication, oratane  should be used under the supervision of  your physicians/dermatologist  after careful review of your history and physical examination ( especially since your situation may have changed from 3 years ago).

 Best wishes.

Usually we ask or patients to stay away from aspirin and aspirin contain medication for 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks after surgery.
