Preparing for a Facelift In Naperville

Posted on March 21st, 2021 by Margo

If you’re preparing for a facelift in Naperville, here are eight suggestions for things to do in getting ready for your procedure.

  1. Adjust Your Prescription Medications

Talk with Dr. Rubach or Dr. Franco about all your prescription medications during your initial consultation. If needed, the doctor will contact your prescribing physician to determine if adjustments should be made to ensure your safety during the procedure.

  1. Stop Smoking

Nicotine restricts blood flow and can cause complications during and after the procedure. So, stop smoking, chewing or vaping.

  1. Avoid Certain OTC Medications

To reduce the risk of excessive bleeding, avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications and herbal supplements. If in doubt, ask the doctor.

  1. Arrange a Ride

You’ll be sedated during the procedure and unable to drive when you wake up. You’ll need someone to drive you home once you’re released.

  1. Hydrate

Water helps the healing process, so drink plenty of water in the weeks preceding the procedure to help with healing and recovery.

  1. Wear the Right Clothing

After your procedure, you don’t want to take off clothing over your head. So wear clothing that closes in the front for easy removal.

  1. Ask for Help

Surgery, including a facelift, requires downtime to rest and heal. You’ll need someone to help with meals and housekeeping for a few days after surgery.
