Breast Surgery PreOp Instructions Detroit

There are several things you may be trying to keep track of on the day of your plastic surgery procedure with Dr. Lytle. Here is a list of some of the important steps before you leave your house:

  • If you have any questions before or after surgery please feel free to call.
  • Do not take aspirin, herbal supplements, diet pills, antihistamines, Ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin or Aleve or medications containing blood-thinning agents for two weeks before and after surgery. You may take Tylenol for pain.
  • You must stop smoking six weeks before surgery and not smoke for six weeks after surgery as well.
  • If you develop cold symptoms or any signs of infection within a week of your surgery, please notify the office.
  • Do not eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery.
  • Please make arrangements to have someone drive you home.

The Day of Surgery

  • You may brush your teeth.
  • Do not wear make-up.
  • Wear a top that zips or buttons, comfortable pants without any metal on them, and flip flops or slip on shoes.
  • Do not wear jewelry. Remove piercings if possible.
  • Do not bring money or valuables, except for hospital payment.
  • Bring your surgical bra or compression garment.
  • Report to surgery at your designated time. Usually one to two hours before the procedure.
  • Have your prescriptions filled and bring medications with you.
  • After surgery, we recommend that you eat a light meal, drink plenty of liquids, take medicine as prescribed, and relax.
  • If you have any questions about these pre-op instructions, please contact Dr. Lytle for an initial and free consultation.
