Pre-Operative Instructions for Breast Augmentation

Before Enhancement

1. Fasting: Refrain from eating or drinking anything for 8 hours before your surgery.

2. Hygiene: Take a thorough shower, shampoo, and cleanse your body at home before the surgery.

3. Nail and Makeup: Avoid nail polish, especially colored or gel polish, as we may need to remove it before surgery. Do not apply makeup on the day of surgery.

4. Comfortable Attire: Prepare comfortable clothing to change into after surgery, such as a shirt with front buttons and sport pants for convenience.

5. Substance Restrictions: Cease the consumption of alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, and any medications that affect your blood pressure. Discontinue the use of vitamin E, fish oil, and all dietary supplements, as they may impact wound healing and bruise recovery.

6. Remove Accessories: Take off all metal accessories, including earrings and watches, and store them safely before entering the operating room.

7. Eyewear: Remove glasses and contact lenses before entering the operating room.

8. Timely Arrival: Please arrive at the clinic at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled surgery time to allow for necessary preparations.

9. Care-Taker: Ensure you have a designated care-taker (a family member, friend, or relative) to pick you up after the surgery. Share the care-taker’s contact number with our clinic staff before entering the operating room.

10. Medication Management: Avoid medications that affect blood clotting, such as aspirin, clopidogrel, and ticagrelor, for at least 7 days before surgery. Additionally, refrain from taking warfarin for at least 3 days before the procedure.

11. Supplement and Herb Avoidance: Do not consume vitamin supplements, dietary supplements, or herbs like evening primrose and fish oil for a minimum of 2 weeks before the surgery.
