In brief: No-great antoxidant

Not at all. Actually Vitamine C is a powerful anti-oxidant which will enhance the healing power. I recommend to my patients to take 1,000 mg at least daily prior to surgery and to continue after after during the healing phase.

In brief: Not Necessary

Your plastic surgeon will have a list of do's and don'ts for you; in my practice, the use of vitamin c is not necessarily discontinued.
