What are the precautions to be taken before a procedure?

It is recommended to stop taking anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin, ibuprofen and the like), oral contraceptives and vitamin E at least three weeks before the procedure to reduce the risk of bleeding. If you have diabetes and take metformin, ask your physician if it is possible to use an alternative medication to control your diabetes, at least 30 days before the estimated date of surgery.
Smoking increases the risk of plastic surgery, since nicotine circulating in blood affects the proper irrigation of the tissues, which can cause delayed healing. Although as healthcare, our formal recommendation is to suspend smoking completely, if not, it is best to stop smoking at least 30 days before the proposed date of surgery to reduce the chances of complications.
