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).
