    What happens if I get sick with a cold or a cough before surgery?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    If you get sick, you must be carefully evaluated by both your plastic surgeon and anesthesiologist.

    When colds are minor, it’s probably reasonable to proceed with breast augmentation surgery. You should cancel the procedure if the colds and coughs are related to elevating temperatures, sputum production, signs of influenza, wheezing and signs of generalized illness. Under these conditions, sicknesses can progress and significantly complicate the post-operative course. Sometimes, secondary complications such as pneumonia, infection, bleeding, and hematoma could result. Additionally, a chronic cough can cause significant discomfort in the post-operative period. So do take care of yourself.

    For these reasons, it’s occasionally essential to cancel breast augmentation procedures and re-schedule at a later date. It’s important to keep in mind that safety should always be everyone’s first priority.
