Preoperative care

Regardless of gender or age, before an aesthetic intervention it is essential to prepare the body and mind to face the surgical procedure.


Surgeries, including aesthetic procedures, involve a transitory state of emotional and physical stress. Therefore, patients interested in these interventions must take a series of measures to face them in the best physical and mental condition.

It is important to maintain adequate water consumption before surgery, considering that most aesthetic interventions generate volume loss, dehydration and low blood pressure.

1. Preoperative Exams For Cosmetic Surgery:
In relation to the medical tests necessary to face these procedures, the specialist emphasizes that a complete check-up should be carried out that includes:

  • Complete Blood Count.
  • Biochemical Profile.
  • Coagulation Tests.
  • Electrocardiogram.
  • Imaging Exams (in some cases).


2. Preoperative:
It is essential to rule out cases of anemia, diabetes mellitus, renal function and coagulation disorders. In addition, the heart must be controlled, and possible hernias identified if the abdomen is operated on, or breast pathologies if the breasts are operated on.


A Month Before:
Ideally, patients should stop smoking and drinking alcohol one month before and one month after surgery. Tobacco has been shown to interfere with anesthesia and healing, increasing the likelihood of complications. A significant consumption of alcohol can alter liver function and both surgery and the postoperative period involve the use of medications that require optimal liver function.

One Week Before:
Seven days prior to plastic surgery, special care should be considered so as not to get infected with viral or bacterial infections that may compromise the general condition of the patient or cause him to develop feverish symptoms.

One Day Before:
24 hours before surgery, it is recommended to pre-admit to the clinic where the operation will be carried out, so that during the day of surgery there are no unforeseen events and the patient is calmer.
