What will happen on the day of my breast enlargement surgery?

Have a shower before you leave but do not apply any skin creams or lotions.

You will arrive at the clinic or hospital where you will have to complete some forms as part of the admissions process. This is routine procedure.

You will then be shown to your room. A nurse will visit you and will perform a series of pre-operative checks. These include taking blood and urine samples and checking your blood pressure. You will also be given a pair of compression stockings to wear. These help to prevent the build up of blood clots which can cause DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis). You may also be given an injection of a blood thinning drug. This drug, called Heparin, will thin the blood to prevent the formation of blood clots.

You will be visited by your surgeon and the anaesthetist. This is to check that everything is okay and to answer any last minute questions you may have. You will, understandably, be nervous at this time and they will do everything they can to reassure you.

Note: you can still change your mind – even at this point.

You will be asked to remove any make up and to change into a theatre gown.

This procedure usually requires an overnight stay although it can be performed as day surgery in a few cases.
