How can I prepare for breast reduction surgery?
You will be given pre-operative instructions to help you prepare for your breast reduction surgery. It is important to stop smoking well in advance of your surgery to enable good healing after the procedure. Stopping anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, certain herbal supplements and vitamin E is necessary to reduce bleeding. A baseline mammogram is recommended. You will also need to arrange for someone to drive you to the procedure and stay with you overnight after surgery.
