Exercises should be practiced three times a day, until the patient starts to feel some discomfort, inspiring and expiring slowly. Practicing these exercises help to providethe best post-operative as possible, making the patient easily used to the ´tightening´ of the abdominal area (Apo neurotic muscle)."
"Pre-operative exams and detailed explanations of all pertinent information necessary are really important steps before the procedure. It is important to report diseases such as hepatitis B and HIV, prescribed medication, consumption of alcohol and injectable drugs. It is also necessary to interrupt the use of anti-clotting medication, birth control pills. It is very important to quit smoking 2 weeks before the procedure. Medications such as Ginkko biloba might also interfere with clotting and should be suspended."
