The patient should be approached to the procedure of cruroplasty carefully, he should be calm - both mentally and physically. A week before the operation, it is recommended to do light gymnastics, take long walks in the fresh air, and jog. Any surgical intervention is stressful for the body, therefore, before the procedure of cruroplasty, the patient should rest as best as possible, not forgetting about good nutrition. If there is excess weight, then the operation should begin preparation even earlier in order to correct body weight.
Smoking is considered a negative factor for the healing of postoperative sutures. Nicotine constricts blood vessels, impairs blood circulation, and increases the risk of complications. To avoid negative consequences, smokers are advised to refrain from nicotine, at least a couple of weeks before surgery, cruroplasty, as well as during the entire recovery period.
As for alcohol, it does not directly affect the quality of healing, but it negatively affects blood coagulation processes. Therefore, moderation in the use of alcohol should be observed both before and after kroroplastika.
In the course of a medical consultation, before carrying out cruroplasty, you need to inform the doctor about the medications you are taking. It is advisable to stop taking medications, including oral contraceptives, 1-2 weeks before the operation. If this is not possible, then it is necessary to consult a doctor.
On the eve of the intervention, the patient should take a shower (preferably with a bactericidal soap), without the subsequent application of creams, lotions or oils. It is necessary to leave all jewelry and valuable accessories at home, put on light and comfortable clothes. Shoes should be flat.
Since cruroplasty most often involves the use of epidural anesthesia and intravenous anesthesia, it is important that the stomach is completely empty at the time of surgery. If it contains liquid or food masses, they can enter the respiratory tract, which is dangerous for the patient during anesthesia. To avoid complications, you should easily have dinner in the evening, and the next morning, on the eve of the intervention, do not consume either food or water.
Many experts advise to exclude salted foods a week before the operation of cruroplasty. This is due to the fact that salt can provoke swelling of the lower extremities, which is extremely undesirable in the postoperative stage.
If everything is done correctly, then you can not only prevent the development of complications after cruroplasty, but also accelerate the further restoration of tissues and the whole body.
