Why you need AT LEAST 2 weeks prep time for a Breast Augmentation:

Many clinics are offering quick turnarounds for breast augmentation procedure these days: come in for a chat, then turn up a day or two later for the actual surgery.  While this might sound like good service, it’s actually the exact opposite. Cutting down preparation time before surgery can have serious adverse effects on the outcomes of your surgery.

Let’s explore the main reasons why it’s important to always prepare properly.

Testing

A good clinic will perform pre-operative tests to confirm that you are fit and healthy for anaesthesia and surgery. These will include a blood test and, depending on your medical history, other tests might also be ordered – for example, to check heart and lung function. Ignoring such pre-operative testing is an unsafe practice because it increases the risks of complications with anaesthesia and surgery.

Diet and medication

A range of common medications, supplements, and foods can thin your blood. These include, but are not limited to, Ibuprofen (Nurofen), garlic, Vitamin E, fish oil, and aspirin. When your blood is thinner, it doesn’t clot easily, meaning major bleeding can occur during surgery. You’ll need to avoid all blood-thinning agents for at least two weeks before your surgery. Our Clinic will provide you with a very comprehensive list of medications, herbal products and foods to be avoided in the 2 weeks prior to surgery.

Cooling-off period

Having time to read and think about all of the information that we give you is an important part of making the best decision for you and your body. One or two days isn’t long enough to think it all through thoroughly.

Ordering implants

Your chosen implants may not always be immediately available from the implant company. For this reason, we prefer to schedule the date of your surgery with enough notice for the implant company to source the implants if they don’t already have them in stock. What we will never do is try and convince you to choose the next closest implant.

Cigarettes

If you’re a smoker, you’ll need to avoid cigarettes for two weeks before surgery. If you don’t allow yourself two weeks off cigarettes, you will affect your healing ability and your recovery could be longer and more difficult.

Alcohol

You’ll need to avoid alcohol for three days before your surgery. Your immune system is important in fighting off infections that otherwise might hamper your recovery from surgery.

Summary

Don’t be attracted to clinics that are more interested in your money than your well-being. Look for a clinic that has your best interests at heart and insists on at least two weeks between your first consultation and your surgery.
