How do I plan my liposuction surgery?
Your botonics surgeon will evaluate your health, determine where your fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. He will also recommend the body-contouring methods or combination of methods that will best answer your needs. Be frank about your expectations. Your botonics surgeon should be equally frank, describing the procedures in detail and explaining their risks and limitations.
Follow your surgeon’s specific instructions, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding vitamins, iron tablets and other medications. If you develop a cold or an infection of any kind, especially a skin infection, your surgery may have to be postponed. Be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure and, if necessary, to help you out for a day or two.
