Cold and sore throat
in my opinion if you still have a cold and a sore throat on the preop day then your surgery should be postponed. There is plenty to recover from without dealing with a cold and an inflamed throat that will be worsened by intubation. Remember it's elective surgery. Why worsen the recovery?
Please talk to your board certified plastic surgeon
