What kind of drugs are involved and do you have any allergies, if so what does the surgeon recommend instead? If you are currently taking any supplements, vitamins, diet pills, etc. (even over the counter) be sure to ask if you can continue to take them before your surgery. If you have had any previous surgeries (even unrelated to cosmetic) tell your surgeon. Be as upfront with your surgeon, so they may give you the best evaluation and expectations possible.
