Prior to your surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking well in advance of surgery
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
  • Avoid consuming food or beverages at least 12 hours before surgery

For recovery from your surgery, you will be given instructions that may include:

  • How to care for the surgical site
  • Medications to take or apply to aid healing and reduce potential for infection
  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
  • When to follow up with your surgeon
