Caffeine and breast reconstructive flaps

I had a patient recently who was a 2-3 cup a day coffee consumer who asked about caffeine intake after surgery… indeed, there may be a situation where your plastic and reconstructive surgeon asks patients to decrease or even temporarily discontinue caffeine intake for a period of time after surgery to optimize wound healing… just a thought to perhaps be able to begin the taper-off period to avoid caffeine withdrawal headaches afterwards!
