Safety is our primary concern, and perioperative instructions can help reduce the risks associated with plastic surgery and anesthesia. In addition, preparation before facelift surgery helps maximize recovery after plastic surgery. Each patient and procedure is unique, so variations will occur and be specific for each patient. Patients must read the care instructions before any procedure.
Common preparation tips prior to or after any plastic surgery procedure:
- Avoid blood-thinning medications or supplements, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, herbal supplements.
- Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water.
- Avoid excess salts in your diet, including processed and fast food.
- Strictly avoid smoking.
