To prepare yourself for an upcoming chin liposuction, you should avoid anti-inflammatory drugs or blood thinners such as aspirin. Refrain from smoking and do not take any pharmaceutical drugs causing anticoagulation at least two weeks prior the operation.
Some diet supplement containing high vitamin E or monosodium glutamate, garlic, onion or soybean may cause more bleeding during the operation. If you take any diet supplement or are not sure, please speak to your surgeon. You may need to stop taking diet supplements three to five days before the operation.
In case you have decided to be under full anaesthesia while undergoing the operation, you must refrain from eating or drinking anything at least six hours before the surgery begins. Smoking should be stopped one to two weeks earlier.
Please keep your medical history ready and hand it over to your surgeon on the day of the surgery. Even though most chin liposuction patients make a quick recovery, expect to take sick leave between five and seven days.
