Anticoagulant drugs (eg, Marcumar, Sintrom, etc.) or blood-thinning medications (eg, ThromboAss, Plavix, etc.) must be discontinued by your family doctor or internist about 2 weeks before your surgery and replaced with heparin injections (low molecular weight heparins) become. These heparin syringes must be administered beyond the day of the operation. Your surgeon will tell you when the blood coagulation medication can be returned to Marcumar or Sintrom by your family doctor or internist.
Many “harmless” flu and painkillers cause blood thinning, as they contain acetylsalicylic acid or acetylsalicylate. Medications containing acetylsalicylic acid (such as Aspirin, Aspro, Ascorbisal, Duan®, Thomapyrin, etc.) must be discontinued at least 2 weeks before breast surgery, as a single tablet can have a very negative effect on your haemostasis. If in doubt, consult with your surgeon, family doctor or internist.
Important medications (such as thyroid hormone pills, antihypertensive medications, heart remedies, etc.) may also be taken with a sip of water on the day of surgery. Your doctor will then discuss with you which medicines should be discontinued, changed in dose or replaced by others for how long before and after the procedure.
One Day Before Breast Augmentation Surgery
On the day before the operation, when performing general anesthesia, do not eat foods that are difficult to digest (fatty). If the operation takes place in the morning or in the morning, it must not be drunk or eaten after waking up in the morning. If the surgery takes place in the afternoon, a light breakfast is allowed. At least 6 hours before the scheduled surgery, however, nothing more may be eaten or drunk.
- If the surgery is performed under local anesthesia, you can also take light food before surgery. Even clear liquids such as water or tea can be taken. Alcohol consumption is prohibited on the day of the operation.
- Please do not use oily shower or bath products on the day of the operation, but normal soap or shower gel.
- If necessary, a shave in the area of the operating area is necessary, but this must be done immediately before the operation. Your doctor will discuss the exact procedure with you.
- In general, you should no longer make-up on the day of surgery for hygienic reasons and apply no face, eye and body cream.
Important: Due to the risk of burns during hemostasis, any body piercing and metal jewelry must be removed for the duration of the operation.
Please bring any valuables (jewelry, etc.), as no liability is assumed.
