Surgery Post Infection

Thank you for your question. Yes, having had a recent infection is a big concern regarding breast Implants in particular. I recommend that you discuss your situation with your chosen Plastic Surgeon. They will let you know what they feel is a safe timeline for planning and talk about next steps with you.
All the best


Your daughter is correct. Your infection must be completely cleared before rescheduling surgery, especially the breast augmentation. I would suggest asking your surgeon what he/she prefers. Some would ask you to wait at least 3 months.

Berast Augmentation mini facelift: Tooth infection root canal.

Thank you for your question. Of course it is best to have the infection completely eradicated before perusing an elective surgery. Speak with your surgeon about obtaining some blood work to ensure the infection is gone - then go ahead with the surgery!Best,

Aesthetics after infected tooth

Hello debbiebunch. It is not nice to have a serious infection before any aesthetic operation. Your doctor should decide for your operation schedule. If you begin to feel OK 5 or 6 days before the operation and your blood tests return to normal then the operation can be done on September 1. Good luck
