The Days Leading Up to Surgery

In the weeks leading up to breast augmentation, we will make sure you know what to do, such as:

  • Begin or stop taking certain medications as instructed by the surgeon
  • Arranging for someone (spouse, family member, friend) to bring you to surgery and drive you home
  • Making sure someone is available to stay with you for at least the first 24 hours after surgery, in your home
  • Buying or preparing meals ahead of time so you won’t need to worry about getting nutritious, healthy meals while you’re healing
  • Getting at least one week off from work
  • Arranging for help with any of your daily routines and responsibilities (i.e. childcare, errands, events, getting kids to and from school, etc.)
  • Quitting smoking and all forms of nicotine use at least three weeks before surgery (and being prepared to stay off the nicotine products for a full three weeks after)
  • Eating well, exercising, getting plenty of rest, limiting alcohol, and staying hydrated

The Day of Surgery

We’ll ask you to:

  • Take a shower
  • Skip the cosmetics, deodorant, creams, lotions, hairspray, etc.
  • Brush your teeth but do not swallow any water or paste
  • Wear comfortable, baggy clothes
  • A button-up shirt may be the easiest to remove and put on
