Here is what you need to do to prepare yourself before breast surgery.
During the preliminary consultations, your surgeon will give you a list of points to follow before the operation. These recommendations must be followed in order to maximize the chances of success of your breast augmentation and avoid possible complications afterwards.
Here are the main recommendations that your surgeon will give you a few weeks before your visit to the clinic
– Stop smoking: if you have a smoking habit, then you will need to stop smoking about two months before the procedure. After the operation, you should also avoid smoking for at least 4 weeks. Smoking can interfere with the healing process and can cause skin problems in the breast area. So you will need to stop smoking for the periods indicated so that the recovery phase can proceed as planned.
– Stop taking certain medications: two weeks before the procedure, you should absolutely avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs. These precautions are necessary to avoid the risk of bleeding.
– Take rest: the ideal before a surgery is to be in good condition, both physically and mentally. Indeed, it is not advisable to arrive at the clinic tired or in a bad mental state. If you have the possibility, try to come accompanied by someone close to you, support is important during a surgical procedure,
– Take the time to think about your procedure: a cosmetic surgery procedure is an important step and a decision not to be taken lightly. The results of the procedure are permanent, and your body will undergo major changes. Therefore, you must take your time, not rush, weighing the pros and cons. Only when you feel 100 percent ready can you confirm your surgery.
The night before your breast augmentation, you will need to take a shower while applying an antiseptic soap. This will help to eliminate some of the germs that can interfere with the procedure. Once you have showered, you should not use cosmetics or any other hygiene products.
When you pack your bag of clothes, choose loose-fitting clothes to wear after the operation, and especially avoid sweaters and tight-fitting clothes. This way, the day after the operation, you will be able to feel more comfortable with your new breast size.
Of course, we advise you to have a good night’s sleep and arrive to the operating room rested.
