Before any surgery, you�ll need to monitor your medication and vitamin intake. Some medications can cause blood loss and other circulation issues, interfere with the anesthesia, or inhibit your recovery. To avoid such issues, be sure you disclose all medication, vitamins � including herbal supplements �to your plastic surgeon.

Note: Your plastic surgeon will provide a detailed list of medications, vitamins, and other activities to avoid before your surgery. The list below only provides an overview; you should follow your doctor�s advice for tips specific to your situation.

Medications and vitamins to avoid before surgery

  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol approx two weeks before surgery.
  • Aspirin, MAOIs and other anti-inflammatory drugs increase bleeding and therefore, should be avoided several weeks prior to surgery.
  • Avoid Vitamin K approximately three days before surgery.
  • Products that contain Aspirin, Vitamin E, or Evening Primrose oil
  • Herbal supplements, such as St John�s Wort, Echinacea, and Melatonin

On the day of surgery:

  • Wear comfortable, loose clothing that doesn�t need to be pulled over your head.
  • Don�t wear make-up.
  • If you are in an outpatient facility, be sure to arrange a ride home.

Most importantly, discuss any concerns you have about the procedure before you have surgery. It is normal to be nervous and many plastic surgeons are used to putting patients at ease. If it makes you feel more comfortable, have your plastic surgeon review each step of the procedure and list all medications and anesthesia involved multiple times. A little reassurance goes a long way as a relaxed patient is one that recovers faster.

Will insurance cover your nose job?

AnswerIt depends on your insurance and reason for having the procedure. Your nose job may be covered by your insurance if your procedure is enhancing the function of your nose (ex: relieving swelling, extreme sinus pressure, or breathing problems, etc). If your procedure is purely cosmetic, the chances of your procedure being covered is very low. Consult your plastic surgeon and your insurance company to determine which financial plan you'll have to follow.Nearly all plastic or cosmetic surgery is considered elective, which means health insurance does not pay for it.
