- 7 days before surgery, it is necessary to exclude spiced and fatty foods as well as alcohol.
- 8 hours before operation, you should not take any food to ensure the safe anesthesia.
- In the morning on the day of breast lifting, when arriving at the clinic, you should have comfortable clothes that not compress the breast and should not be pulled over, personal hygiene products, spare underwear and all necessary documents and test results with you.
On the day of the breast reducing, your mental and physical conditions should be calm.
