Instructions for Our Patients
Like any dedicated plastic surgeon, Dr. John Silverton provides each patient with detailed pre- and post-operative instructions. It is important to follow these instructions closely in order to achieve the best possible surgical results.
Preparing for Surgery
There are a number of important steps to take when preparing for surgery. By closely following your plastic surgeon’s instructions, you can set yourself up for a successful procedure and the quickest, safest, and most comfortable recovery possible. When preparing for your surgery:
Smoking slows the healing process and increases the risk of complications.
Eating healthy foods both before and after surgery can help you heal more quickly and feel better.
Medications containing aspirin and ibuprofen can thin the blood and cause excessive bleeding during and immediately after surgery. Acetaminophen is a safe alternative.
Because these products are not thoroughly tested, they can interact unexpectedly with anesthesia, which could cause life-threatening complications.
Dr. Silverton typically prescribes medication during the pre-operative physical. It is important to fill these prescriptions before surgery so they will be available when you need them.
Patients typically need to undergo detailed testing prior to surgery, which may include a mammogram, EKG, electrolyte testing, and a blood-clotting panel. Undergoing these tests is an important part of determining whether you are a good candidate for plastic surgery.
