Knowing how to prepare for and take care of yourself after surgery properly is an essential component of a successful treatment and optimal results. Our office is proud to provide all our patients with instructions for both pre- and post-operative care, as we do our best to give you all the tools you need to be comfortable during treatment. The better prepared you are, the more likely you will experience a quick and easy recovery.
Your pre-operative instructions will help you get ready for surgery, providing you with steps for what to wear and what to eat (or not eat) before surgery. Your post-operative instructions will likely be more specific to your procedure and will contain more detailed guidelines about how to manage discomfort, what to eat, and how long you should rest before returning to your normal routine. We encourage every patient to review all of their instructions before surgery to ensure they understand what is expected of them.
