Ready for surgery
- Stop smoking – This might seem like a big ask if you’re a heavy smoker but it’s necessary. Cigarettes have many substances that are harmful to your body and could easily affect your ability to recover from breast surgery. Nicotine causes your blood vessels to restrict and therefore prevents the incisions made during the surgery to heal properly. Smoking also makes you more susceptible to infection and could cause other complications during surgery.
- Wear loose clothing – Following your surgery, your breasts will be quite sore so you want to make sure you’re not wearing anything too tight. A sports bra will be provided for you to wear afterwards so you don’t have to worry about that.
- Take any prescribed medication – You should continue to take any prescribed medication except for blood thinners. Your surgeon will advise you properly regarding any medication you are taking.
- Do not apply lotions or antiperspirant to your skin – Showering and using soap is fine but you want to make sure that your skin if clean and doesn’t have any creams or lotions applied to it.
