During the consultation, the attending physician will inform you individually about what you need to consider before and after the surgery, and provide you with comprehensive information about possible risks and side effects.

In general, anticoagulant or blood-thinning medication should be discontinued two weeks before the surgical procedure. If the intake is necessary for medical reasons, this should be clarified with the treating doctor.

It should be noted that many non-prescription drugs such as flu and painkillers also contain acetylsalicylic acid or acetylsalicylate and lead to blood thinning. Vitamin C and E must also be avoided before the procedure.

Prior to the procedure, the patient must be cleared for surgery under local anesthesia.

We recommend to get a cooling mask or cool packs from the pharmacy or drugstore for aftercare.
