At the very minimum, six months after your last pill. To be completely safe, some surgeons will not do surgery (particularly invasive, delicate surgery in a hard to heal area) for a year after taking Accutane.

I got my wisdom teeth pulled a few days after being off accutane. I guess it depends on your surgery, so don't take advice from us but from a doctor.

I had my wisdom teeth out while on accutane. In the middle of my course actually. My derm and the doctor taking my wisdom teeth out said it was okay. I guess it what kind of surgery you have done.

i had emergency surgery done during accutane....i got a bad case of appendicitis haha. if your surgery is NEEDED maybe you should stop and get it done now, but otherwise wait. although my healing went fine, the meds affect everyone differently.
