How to prepare for liposuction surgery?

Patients are always given specific pre-op guidelines by the surgeon. Yet, you can expect the following instructions:


  • stop smoking (patients must quit smoke 4 weeks before the procedure, the high time to quit smoke may be sometimes 2 weeks before)
  • maintain the proper hydration level
  • follow a healthy diet
  • take care of yourself and your health (avoid infections, cough or cold)
  • do not drink alcohol (usually 2 weeks before liposuction alcohol is forbidden)
  • avoid sun exposure (especially on the areas that will be addressed)
  • from 1-2 weeks before liposuction, consult any taken medication with a plastic surgeon
  • stop taking certain medications (e.g. aspirin – aspirin and ibuprofen cannot be taken for 2 weeks prior to surgery).


All other important instructions are prepared by plastic surgeons individually and passed to a patient about a month before the surgery.
