Our expert says:
Postoperative infections and haematomas are dependent on a number of factors. These include your immune system, the way the area heals, your weight and factors related to the surgery. Things you could do would be to lose weight if this is applicable, take multivitamins and ensure a healthy lifestyle - no smoking, etc. Also tell the surgeon that you had problems before so that he/she can take extra care with the surgery. Unfortunately, despite all these precautions, infections can still occur.
