Preparing for your surgery

NYC liposuction cosmetic surgeon Dr. Zevon will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding vitamins, iron tablets and certain medications. If you develop a cold or an infection of any kind, especially a skin infection, your liposuction surgery may have to be postponed.

Though it is rarely necessary, Dr. Zevon may recommend that you have blood drawn ahead of time in case it is needed during surgery.

Also, while you are making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after the liposuction procedure and, if needed, to help you at home for a day or two.
