If you have made the decision to undergo a breast augmentation using the trans-axillary technique, the time leading up to the procedure can be thrilling, as you envision the anticipated results of your surgery. However, it can also be an anxious time, as you wonder what to expect and how to prepare. To ease your nerves and help you focus on the excitement of your impending transformation, we have outlined the steps that should be taken to prepare for your virtually scarless breast augmentation procedure.

Ensure That You Have Realistic Expectations

While this procedure can yield dramatic results, it is important to ensure that you have realistic expectations before undergoing surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gartner will discuss the anticipated outcome as well as any potential risks and complications. As with any surgical procedure, the goal is enhancement not perfection. It is imperative that you understand and accept the risks and limitations of the surgery before going forward with the procedure.

Stop Smoking For At Least Two Weeks

Prior to your surgery, it is necessary to refrain from smoking and ensure that you are not exposed to second hand smoke for at least two weeks because in addition to other negative health effects, Nicotine in particular, impairs circulation and can lead to delayed healing or other complications.

Stop Taking Aspirin Or Other Blood Thinning Medications

Aspirin and other medications which contain salicylates, such as Motrin, Advil, Plavix, warfarin, and Coumadin must be avoided for at least two weeks before and after your procedure as they can thin your blood. The use of supplements such as omega 3, fish oil, garlic, Ginseng and vitamin E should also be discontinued for a short time, according to your surgeon’s advice.
