All patients are seen approximately two weeks prior to surgery for their pre-operative appointment. During that visit, all surgical consents are signed, photos are taken, and a detailed informational packet is provided with specific instructions for before and after surgery. A complete list of “dos and don’ts” are also reviewed. Patients receive prescriptions for an antibiotic, as well as pain and anti-nausea medications.
Dr. Ravi recommends stopping use of aspirin and all other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as Ibuprofen) for at least one week before and after surgery to prevent excessive bruising. Herbs and supplements should also be stopped for at least one week prior to surgery as this can interrupt healing.
All patients are recommended to stop smoking for at least four weeks before surgery and four weeks after surgery to minimize healing complications.
Be prepared to closely follow all recommended pre-surgery and post-surgery instructions to ensure the best possible results for yourself.
