Medications to Avoid
When having a breast augmentation surgery patients are required to maintain a refrain on certain medications including vitamins and herbal remedies, food items and regimes of exercise which we have listed here for applying patients to provide with a basic idea, but your personalised indications might differ from this.

In your consultation at our clinic in London, you will be asked and examined thoroughly about all kinds of medications you are taking, including aspirins, any herbal remedies and supplements. Sometimes patients are unsure whether their vitamin supplements are a medication at all. Well, yes it is. And you are strongly required to determine and remember of all the drug usage that you might be having, and also those you used to have in the past.
