Next Bermant Plastic Cosmetic Aesthetic Plastic SurgeryTumescent Liposuction preparation requires avoiding medicines that can cause bleeding. Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and many arthritis medications interfere with platelet function and must be stopped 2 weeks before surgery. Many cold, sinus, and other medications contain these drugs and must also be stopped. Vitamin E interferes with the liver making blood clotting factors from Vitamin K. Stop taking Vitamin E at least 3-4 weeks before surgery. Our office provides our patients with a list of medications and over the counter items to avoid.

Nicotine and cigarette smoking can hinder wound healing, so please stop at least 2 weeks before your operation. For more demanding sculptures, 4 or more weeks increase the safety from the effects of nicotine.

To avoid ingrown hairs, don't shave or remove hair near the regions to be sculpted the day of surgery. You will have to not eat after midnight so you can arrive with an empty stomach. You will be able to take your medications with a small sip of water that morning. Check with us about any medications that you will be taking. Wear loose fitting clothing that opens in the front or pulls over easily. This will make it easier to get dressed over your pressure garment and dressings.
