Surgery Preparation

Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Anna Wooten, and the rest of the Beleza staff pride themselves on providing the finest aesthetic experience in the Pittsburgh region. To ensure that your visit (and your result) is the best it can be, we ask that our patients refrain from taking any and all products that thin the blood prior to any treatment, unless prescribed or otherwise directed by your primary care provider or other doctor.

This policy is designed to ensure your best result by minimizing your chance of bruising or bleeding. The following is a list of medications, herbs, and supplements to avoid during the four weeks leading up to treatment. Tylenol is permissible.
