It is important to inform your Plastic Surgeon about the use of medications (contraceptives, aspirin, thyroid hormone substitution, etc.), as well as about diseases (phlebitis in the legs, digestive disorders, recent flu states, endocrinological alterations or your general health etc.) .), that may influence the procedure. If you have decided to have surgery, your plastic surgeon will give you a series of presurgical instructions about the foods you should eat, avoid alcoholic beverages and some drugs.
