Your surgeon will take every precaution to minimize these risks and it is extremely important that you follow your surgeon's instructions before and after surgery to avoid these possible complications.
Your body should be well rested and nourished before surgery to help speed recovery. Be sure to eat a healthy, balanced diet during the weeks leading up to surgery. If you are a smoker, it is also highly recommended that you quit smoking at least two weeks prior to surgery. Also get lots of sleep!
Your surgeon should discuss possible complications and all relevant information with you during your initial consultation.
