Do not smoke or ingest nicotine for four weeks before and after surgery as smoking can delay healing. Smoking may also cause complications such as skin loss and scarring.
Additionally, Nicorette gum and nicotine patches cannot be used as they release a harmful vasoconstrictor which can interfere with normal blood flow.
MEDICATIONS, VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS
For body surgery patients avoid having a spray tan 2-3 days prior to surgery.
For face surgery patients it’s not recommended to have any botox or fillers 6 months prior to the operation.
PHYSICAL & EMOTIONAL SUPPORT
Most of the patients are fine to stay by themselves after the surgery. If you thinks you want some supports, please bring a friend or relative to accompany you for the first few days after the surgery. If this is not possible then we recommend care and support from the nurses at www.HealthcareHands.com
