Some tips that can help you in making your surgery successful
•If you smoke, it is essential that you reduce or stop smoking before your procedure and for some time afterward. Be sure to discuss this openly with your doctor.
•Make sure your physician is aware of any medications, supplements, and herbs you are currently taking. For instance, certain medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen can cause bleeding problems during and after the procedure. Carefully follow your physician’s instructions and do not take these medications for a few weeks prior to your procedure.
•Eat a healthy diet and avoid drinking alcohol a few days prior to your procedure.
•Exercise is generally good for your overall health; however, refrain from extremely vigorous exercise the day before your breast augmentation procedure.
•Do not eat or drink anything, including water, after midnight the night before the procedure.
•The night before your procedure, shower and wash your surgical areas with antimicrobial soap. After your shower do not wear any makeup, moisturizers, oils, creams, or lotions — including deodorant.
•Remove nail polish from at least one fingernail and toenail to help the anesthesia person monitor your blood circulation during your procedure.
•When you go to your physician's office, wear loose-fitting clothes that open in the front and comfortable flat shoes that slip on.
