1. You must have a responsible person to accompany you. They will stay in the office reception area during surgery and drive you home after the procedure.
2. Plan to rest for the remainder of the day. Do not operate cars, power tools, machinery, etc., for twenty-four (24) hours after surgery.
3. Nothing to eat or drink for eight (8) hours prior to surgery. However, it is important that you take any regular medications (high blood pressure, antibiotics, etc.) or any premedication prescription that we may have provided, using only a small sip of water.
4. Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Tops/shirts should have sleeves that are easily drawn up above the elbow. When possible, colored nail polish should be removed before surgery.
