Deciding to undergo breast augmentation is a major decision. No matter if its part of reconstruction after breast cancer. for cosmetic reasons or as a part of overall aesthetic transformation, there are certain things you can do to help prepare yourself for the surgery.

As a general rule of thumb counting down the month prior to the operation:

Beginning up to three weeks before the surgery your doctor may have you stop some medications, or in some cases may have you change or add medications to your regimen. A lot of common medications that you are ordered to stop may include: Vitamin E supplements, anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, and if possible, blood thinning agents. You will also be told to cease or reduce smoking and your exposure to second hand smoke.

Drawing closer to the date, within two weeks:

You will be ordered to stop drinking alcoholic beverages. You will also be advised against using products, such as certain mouth washes, that contain alcohol. Some surgeons may also start certain supplements at this time. Not every doctor may have the same opinion or preference in this matter so wait and follow their instructions and ask prior to starting any on your own. Most surgeons also have you begin lowering the sodium in your diet or other specific regimens depending again on their preference and experience. Lab work is also drawn around this time to be sure there is nothing that might indicate signs that it would not be wise to proceed. Many surgeons also set up and prescribe any medications you will need after the operation around this time to help ensure you are prepare when you leave.
