Pre Operative Instructions

01, Sep, 2019


  • Quit smoking–nicotine reduces blood flow to the skin and can cause significant complications during healing. You will have to refrain from smoking for at least 4 weeks after surgery. It's not a bad idea to consider quitting permanently at this point, because smoking can decrease the lifetime of your plastic surgery results.

  • NO ASPIRIN, IBUPROFEN, ALLEVE (naproxen), or other NSAIDs –They interfere with normal blood clotting. For pain relief, you can take Tylenol or generic acetaminophen.

  • Please DISCONTINUE ALL HERBAL MEDICATIONS and DIET PILLS–They can complicate your surgical procedure or increase risks.

  • Your normal multivitamin is fine, but discontinue "MEGADOSES" of VITAMIN E.



  • Fill your pre-operative shopping list, including picking up your prescriptions, germ-inhibiting soap, and straws to encourage you to drink water. Put together a tasty and nutritious assortment of soft foods to encourage eating that supports healing after surgery.

  • This is a good time to prepare your recovery space. You should have a wedge pillow or enough pillows to hold your torso upright during recovery. Get a few good books and some movies you want to watch. You won't be confined to bed, but the more you enjoy your rest, the more you'll do it and the better your recovery.

  • It's not a bad idea to move needed items down from high shelves. You will likely not want to reach over your head much for a few weeks.

  • We'll give you custom recovery gear, but sometimes you might be more comfortable in your own clothes. During your consultation, we'll talk about recovery wear and what is okay for your procedure.

  • If your skin tolerates, start using the germ-inhibiting soap a full week before surgery.

  • REPORT any signs of cold, infection, boils, or pustules.

  • DO NOT take any cough, cold, or other over-the-counter medications without permission.



  • DO NOT eat or drink anything, not even water, after midnight the night before your surgery. No gum, candy, mints, or coffee the morning of surgery. If you sneak anything, you can increase your risk of serious surgical complications.

  • You may brush your teeth the morning of surgery, but do not drink anything.

  • Your surgeon will tell you whether you should take any regular medications the day of the procedure.

  • TAKE a shower the night before and the morning of your surgery. Scrub thoroughly with your germ-inhibiting soap. Shampoo your hair the morning of surgery.

  • DO NOT use makeup, creams, lotions, hair gels, sprays, perfumes, powder, or deodorant on your skin, hair, or face.

  • DO NOT wear contacts to surgery. Wear your glasses and bring your glasses case.

  • DO NOT bring any valuables or wear any jewelry. If you cannot remove your wedding rings or simply can't bear to, we will tape them.

  • Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothes: We recommend a button-up top and pull-on pants with easy-to-slip-on flats. Don't wear a shirt or other clothing that has to be pulled over your head.



And now you're ready for surgery.
