I would allow you to drink a small amount, but your surgeon may have a different recommendation.  It is always best to ask these questions of your chosen surgeon as recommendations may be different.  I spend hours a day answering emails from my patients.

I appreciate your question.

I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients.  Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!

Alcohol after surgery


Thanks for the questions.

You should ask your surgeon.  I allow patients to drink 2 weeks post-op.  Revisions are not considered for at least 6 months.

Best of luck.

I do allow my patients to drink a glass of wine or 2 starting the 3rd week after surgery as long as they are no longer taking pain medication. I also let them know that alcohol consumption will lead to increased swelling.

Thank you for your question.

I would discuss this with your surgeon seeing as every surgeon will have a slightly different post operative protocol. I usually let my patients drink, in moderation, starting 2 weeks after surgery as long as they have stopped taking their narcotic medication and antiobiotics. In regards to your revision, if you have an adequate amount of fat pockets remaining, it is possible to undergo a revision after 3 months but I recommend waiting at least 6. Best of luck.

Alcohol post surgery

I usually allow patients to have small amounts of alcohol a few weeks after surgery and once they have stopped all medications.  Best to check with your surgeon.

When to drink alcohol postop

If you were my patient, provided you were no longer taking narcotic pain medications, you can drink alcohol starting 2 weeks postoperatively. That being said, all doctors have different protocols and it truly is best to check with the physician who did your procedure.

You shouldn't be drinking any alcohol while taking medication.  Consult your surgeon for post op instructions since he/she is best familiar with your medical history.  Wait at least a few months for your final results before considering a revision.

Always best to consult with your doctor. For my patients you can enjoy moderate alcohol consumption (1 glass of wine), once you are off any narcotics.
