Before Surgery Care


  • It is recommended to stop taking medications such as birth control pills, hormonal drugs, vitamin, aspirin etc. 2 weeks prior to surgery if possible.
  • Any substance that could augment the blood-flow should be avoided from ingestion.
  • If you are under treatment of diabetes, thyroid issues, heart disease or hypertension, make sure you let our consultants know immediately.

  • Your time of recovery will depend on how healthy you are before surgery.
  • Smoking and drinking should be stopped from at least 3 days before the surgery.
  • We also advise you eat healthy food and stay away from processed foods.

  • On the day of the surgery, wearing loose-fitting clothing is recommended.
  • Jewelry, make-up, nail polish and contact lens should be removed.

  • For most surgeries, you will be under a certain type of anesthesia and some with sedation.
