I don't think it is possible to generalise and agree with Lisa that it depends on individual circumstances: how exactly lupus is affecting you plus any other health considerations and what medicines a person is on. Usually the rheumatologist will advise or even get in touch with the surgeon and anesthetist.
Don't forget to mention all medicines including OTC ones and any supplements you take as some supplements can affect blood clotting and anesthesia.

In my case the only recommendation has been to stop my meds 10 days before as they can all increase bleeding risks ( antimalarials, aspirin and to a lesser extent, Imuran ); other people will have different and additional considerations.
