Your surgeon may ask you to stop medications before your surgery as they can promote bleeding. Your doctor may also require you to obtain medical clearance from your primary care physician to ensure your safety during the surgery.
The surgeon should give you specific before & after surgery instructions that are carefully designed to minimize your risk of surgery complications. In order to minimize the risks of cosmetic surgery it is important that you choose an experienced cosmetic surgeon that has a proven track record of success, one that is board certified, and has excellent credentials and patient referrals.
