Preparing for Surgery
- Do not eat or drink after midnight the night prior to your procedure. No gum, candy, or mints. Do not smoke.
- Shower the morning of your procedure. Brush your teeth but avoid swallowing more than a sip of water. Do not wear any perfume or hair sprays. A small amount of unscented deodorant under your arms is okay.
- Do not wear jewelry- leave your valuables at home.
- Wear comfortable clothing.
- Please arrive at the time you are provided. Our team needs this time to get you ready for your procedure. Lateness may jeopardize your procedure.
- Bring a responsible adult (over 18 years of age) with you to stay during your procedure, drive you home after, and stay with you at home for the day. You may experience lightheadedness, dizziness, and sleepiness following your procedure. DO NOT STAY ALONE. A responsible adult should be with you for this 24-hour period.
- Bring the names of all medication with you. If you have asthma, bring your inhaler with you even if you use it infrequently.

- Your surgeon will provide you with post-operative instructions regarding diet, rest and medication. ln the event of any difficulties or complications, call your surgeon immediately. The phone number is found on your discharge instruction sheet.
