Prescriptions and Medications
  • Have any prescriptions filled prior to your surgery date.
  • A sedative is available upon request.
  • The sedative must be taken one hour prior to appointment.
  • If a sedative is taken, you must have a driver.
  • If Motrin (Ibuprofen) and/or an antibiotic are prescribed, begin taking as directed on your prescription.
  • We advise you to take the pain medication before your numbness wears off.
  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin 3 to 5 days prior to surgery, as they are blood thinners and may cause excessive bleeding and delay healing.
  • Please eat a good meal before your appointment, as you will be numb when you leave and may not feel like eating for a while.

Have an Ice Pack at Home
  • The use of ice will help reduce swelling and pain after surgery.
  • Ice is useful for the first 6-8 hours after surgery.
  • Moist heat may be applied the day following surgery, for additional comfort.

Diet Suggestions
  • Have soft foods available: pasta, eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, tofu and potatoes are good choices.
  • Make certain to eat prior to surgery, you may not feel much like eating after surgery, and it will be helpful when taking your medications.
  • Avoid caffeine before surgery.

Recuperation
  • Allow 24 to 48 hours of rest after your surgery.
  • Minimize your activity during this time.
  • Avoid activities that will elevate your heart rate and blood pressure.
  • Healing will occur much faster by resting.
