Anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen can cause a blood thinning effect and make surgery more difficult. Discontinuing this medication is recommended at least two weeks before your surgery date. Make sure you discuss all medications you are taking, both prescription and over the counter with your surgeon before your surgical procedure.
