What am I going to do before my surgery?
We advise to stop taking the following for 1 to 2 weeks before the surgery as they can increase bleeding:
- vitamin E
- fish oil
- anti- depressant drugs
- diet pills
Smoking should also be stopped 2 weeks before surgery because this is detrimental to healing. For breast surgery patients a mammogram test result is required before the surgery. A laboratory test is mandatory before the following major surgeries:
- tummy tuck
- breast augmentation
- breast reduction
- buttocks augmentation
Review the consent and after care instructions. For faster healing, we recommends an excellent nutrition, adequate rest and takes vitamin c.
