Before your plastic surgery operation, what should you know? Dr. Roger J. Oldham of Bethesda answers.

Before your elective plastic surgery with Dr. Roger J. Oldham or any plastic surgeon in the Bethesda area, patients are advised to ensure that their body is in a healthy state andthey are mentally prepared. Whether you’re scheduled for a breast reduction, nose job (rhinoplasty, nose surgery), forehead lift, facelift/neck lift, or a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), it is important to be aware of pre-operational recommendations. Since aspirin can cause bleeding, it is important to avoid aspirin and medications which contain aspirin for at least seven days before surgery and for two days after surgery. Other non-aspirin medication which can cause bleeding and need to be stopped three days prior and two days after surgery include: Motrin, Advil, Nuprin, and Aleve. Even daily multi-vitamin supplements should be examined for presence of Vitamin E which can cause bleeding. The American Society of Anesthesiologists advises patients to stop taking all herbal products two weeks before surgery to avoid possible side effects. So if you’re scheduled for plastic surgery—be it breast augmentation/breast implants, chin augmentation, liposuction, or blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery)—make sure your body is in its best shape to undergo general anesthesia. Dr. Roger J. Oldham is available for consultations in his Bethesda plastic surgery practice if you’re considering any one of these procedures for your body shape and your self esteem. Decades of Dr. Oldham's patients are glad they called.
