Day Before Your Surgery
- Eat a light or bland meal for dinner the night before your surgery (unless instructed otherwise by your surgeon)
- Do not eat or drink after midnight, including hard candy, mints and gum
- Do not smoke after midnight before your surgery
- Shower and wash your hair the night before your surgery
It is important to arrange to have an adult take you home after surgery.
It is also helpful to designate a family spokesperson who can update family members/friends about your condition after surgery (we cannot share any medical information about you by phone to outside callers).
