The surgeon will provide care instructions for pre-op preparation and the patient should be prepared to follow them diligently.

A well-prepared patient will often have better confidence levels and will also achieve higher satisfaction in the end. Individuals who focus on maintaining good fitness and a healthy diet prior to surgery could expect to have a safer and faster recovery.

Terrific, kind, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin provides buttock augmentation to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and surrounding areas in The Golden State.

Before the Surgery

Once the surgeon has approved the patient’s candidacy for buttock augmentation, the patient should accomplish the following tasks to save time and prepare well for the scheduled surgery:

  • Arrange to send previous medical records, including those related to any previous lower body surgery, from the doctor and hospital to the surgeon’s office.

  • Make a list of all prescription and non-prescription drugs as well as any nutrition supplements and vitamins that the patient may be using at present.

  • Get any imaging or lab tests done as per the surgeon’s instruction.

  • If required, arrange for a communication between the surgeon and the doctor, to adjust the schedule of currently used prescription medications.

  • Stop smoking for at least a specified time period prior to the surgery as advised by the surgeon.

  • Accomplish any urgent assignments at home or office in advance to ensure an easy and stress-free recovery.

  • Arrange for someone who can safely drive the patient back home after the buttock augmentation cosmetic surgery.

  • If required, arrange for aftercare for a few days.

A Day Prior to the Surgery

The patient should keep the following tips in mind to be followed a day before the surgery:

  • Take sufficient rest on the day prior to the surgery and sleep early to have a restful night.

  • Do not eat or drink anything for eight hours before the surgery, if the surgeon has planned to use general anesthesia.

  • Reduce alcohol use before the surgery, and abstain completely for at least 48 hours before the surgery.

  • Do not wear makeup, jewelry, body piercings, or contact lenses on the day of the surgery.

  • Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes to the surgery center.

  • Diabetic patients should have their health parameters checked on the morning of the surgery.

It is natural for patients to go through some degree of pre-surgery anxiety a day before the surgery. The surgeon may prescribe a medication to calm the patient on the night before the surgery.
