Surgery and accutane

Recommended Posts

I need to have corrective jaw surgery as soon as possible. I take my last accutane pill next week. I've been told that accutane is not a problem and surgery can go on as usual. What's your opinion?

Accutane causes slow wound healing and the effects of this can last up to 6 months after a course. Did your surgeon tell you it was fine?

My derm told me she's had relatively many patients undergo acute surgery while on tane (my derm is 70-years-old so she has a long job experience) and that they went fine. If you have to undergo surgery than you just have to. Remember to mention about your Accutane to the people taking care you so that they all will be at least aware of it. Good luck!
