It is extremely important to be well prepared before your breast augmentation surgery. The preparations you make will not only improve your chances of a successful procedure but will also help you to cope better with the recovery phase.
To help you prepare for your surgery and be ready for the big day, here are some important things to do, as well as simple tips and tricks you can follow.
A breast augmentation, like any other cosmetic surgical procedure, must be carefully prepared, both physically and psychologically.
Once the date of your admission to the clinic has been confirmed, you will have a few weeks in which you can organize yourself as best as possible.
Here are some good things to do before you go to the clinic:
In addition to doing the right things before the operation, it is also important to stop certain habits and treatments. These interruptions will serve to avoid certain side effects and complications that can be a danger to your health.
Among the recommendations to follow:
The day before the operation is here, you are very close to the finishing line. This is an important moment, you will have to organise yourself well and make the final preparations, while leaving yourself enough time to sleep.
Indeed, you will need to arrive at the operating room well rested.
Here are some things to do (and not to do) the day before you go to the clinic:
Wash your hair: take advantage of the day before the operation to wash your hair well, as you will not have the opportunity to do so for a few days.
Concerning food: eat something light and drink a lot of water. Above all, do not eat after midnight, otherwise the day after the operation you will find it difficult to cope with the anaesthetic.
Avoid applying cosmetics to your body: products that you usually use, such as creams and lotions, should not be used.
Along with the recommendations given to you by the surgeon during the preliminary consultations, before the operation you can also apply these tips that will make your life easier during the recovery period following your discharge from the clinic:
Keep a packet of peas in your freezer: this frozen packet can be applied to the skin to relieve painful sensations. After use, you can refreeze the packet and use it as often as you like.
Try to bring someone with you on the day of the operation: it is best if you bring a friend or family member with you to your procedure. The day after the procedure will not always be easy, and you will certainly need help when you leave the clinic. If you go through an agency, your consultant will assist you throughout your stay.
In terms of clothing: before the procedure, we advise you to bring blouses and large jackets. Indeed, after the procedure, you will find it difficult to lift your arms and to put on tight jumpers. We also advise you to buy a good quality sports bra, which you can wear when you need to remove and wash your support bra.
Do not hesitate to share your doubts with your surgeon: even when the date of the procedure is forthcoming and you will only have a few days left to the operation, do not hesitate to contact your surgeon with any questions (even those that seem “silly”) and to express your doubts about the procedure. Nothing should be left to chance on the big day.
