Preparing For Breast Augmentation

How do I prepare for my breast implant surgery?

Dr. O’Neill and his staff at O’Neill Plastic Surgery in Charleston, SC will spend as much time as necessary to ensure that you have the information you need prior to your breast augmentation surgery. In Charleston, SC, cosmetic surgery involves planning and taking steps pre-operatively to ensure the best possible outcome.

Prior to surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Get a baseline mammogram before surgery and another one after surgery to help detect any future changes in your breast tissue
  • Stop smoking well in advance of surgery
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding

All patients who are scheduled for a breast augmentation at O’Neill Plastic Surgery have a pre-operative visit in our Charleston, SC office prior to their surgery date. During this visit they receive a booklet of information outlining all of the pre-operative and post-operative instructions. All remaining questions are addressed, surgical consents are reviewed and signed, pre-operative photos are taken, and all necessary supplies are provided. Don’t take a chance with just any clinic in Charleston: cosmetic surgery specialist is waiting to fully prepare you for your coming procedure, ensuring your safety and peace of mind.
