Pre-Surgery Checklist

Your surgical team may provide you with resources to read prior to your surgery. This may include details about:

  • Places to stay (if you are traveling)
  • What to expect when you arrive to the hospital
  • Details about the procedure itself
  • Possible pre-operative medications, vitamins, or exercises

You may be asked to use a specific skin cleaner the night before your procedure.

You will most likely be asked to not eat or drink anything the night before your procedure due to the anesthesia.

Every pre-surgery checklist varies, so be sure to talk to your surgical team and understand your unique details.
