FAQs - Pre-Surgery
You need to avoid aspirin, Ibuprofen, Neurofen and other similar painkillers 1 week before surgery. Paracetamol is the safest painkiller to take, if necessary, before surgery. You will also be asked to cut back on smoking and preferably stop smoking completely 4 weeks before surgery. This will help to minimise delayed wound healing and any post-operative complications from the general anaesthetic. It is also preferable to stop the contraceptive pill and HRT four weeks before surgery.
Some cosmetic procedures require an assessment and if this is necessary the hospital will make these arrangements for you.
This depends upon the time of your surgery. You will be given this information the day before your admission by contacting the secretaries on 0845 373 1818.
Mrs Kat will see you and go through the details of your surgery again before you go to theatre. The anaesthetist will also visit you before surgery.
