Please stop eating for at least 6 hours before the operation.
When you are under general anesthesia or IV sedation, the food in the stomach doesn’t digest well, which will affect the examination and diagnosis for the operation. So, please have a small amount of food a day before the operation. On the day of the surgery please stop eating for at least 6 hours before the operation. Do not have breakfast if your surgery is scheduled in the morning. And if your surgery is scheduled in the afternoon, just have light breakfast and do not have lunch.

Stop smoking and drinking alcohol a week before the operation.
Alcohol and nicotine have bad effects on the metabolism and blood circulation, which can increase the risks accompanied with anesthesia and healing process. Please avoid smoking and drinking alcohol one week before the operation.

If you are supposed to be under general anesthesia or IV sedation, please wear simple clothes without makeup and nail polish. The shirt should button or zip down the front. Under anesthesia, at times, a few patients may experience hypoxia (condition deprived of adequate oxygen supply). This symptom can be identified by looking at nails and lips that turn to blue when oxygen is not enough in the artery. So please do not put on any makeup and nail polish.

Prior to surgery, should you develop any fever, chills or other signs of a cold or other infection, call the office immediately. If your lungs are congested or have wheezing, the surgery cannot be done as the risk of pneumonia and poor healing is too great!

Laboratory tests or "blood work" may be required several days prior to surgery if your surgery is planned under general anesthesia or you have some diagnosed illness.

DO NOT take aspirin, ibuprofen, large doses of Vitamin E, or algae-containing food supplements for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery. They may act as a blood thinner and promote excessive bruising. You may use Tylenol or similar medications.

Please come to our clinic at least 30 minutes before the scheduled time.
It’d be better for you to arrive in advance and feel relaxed before your operation. If you arrive just on time or late, so be in a hurry to get prepared, you could have unexpected change in your body, which could affect the last-minute check up before the operation.

DO NOT bring rings, watches, other jewelry to the surgery center or hospital; leave these items safely at home.

Discharge: You will be discharged approximately 1 hour after surgery if your surgery was done under local anesthesia. You will be discharged about 2-4 hours after surgery or the day after surgery if your surgery was done under general anesthesia. In some cases, you can be hospitalized for 1 day.

Driving : Patients should not drive right after the operation. Patients have better come with someone who can drive. Or take public transportation. After the operation, patients have difficulties in controlling themselves for hours, so it is hard to cope with sudden accidents properly and make the right judgment when driving. Don’t drive, it’s very dangerous. If you need limousine service after surgery, we can take you to the hotel or home with our limousine.

Smoking & Alcohol : Smoking and drinking alcohol can obstruct blood circulation and increase the possibility of inflammation. Alcohol and nicotine interrupt the metabolism and blood circulation, which cause problems in healing and detoxifying process with the delay in recovery. Try to stop smoking and drinking alcohol for at least 2 weeks until the wound is healed up.

After the operation, it is important to take the medicine on time as prescribed.
Taking medicine is the very important part of post-operative cares when you try to return to everyday life. It is helpful for faster recovery and prevention of possible infection. You might feel dull and uncomfortable after the operation, but please keep in mind that you should pay more attention to the regular meals and taking medicines than usual. The medicine will last about 3-7 days and will generally not be refilled.

If you live in USA, Canada, Australia and Europe, you have better prepare Arnica product to minimize postoperative swelling and bruise. (Sinnech from alpha pharmaceuticals in America, Arnica from Nelsons in England )

Bandages: You will have compression bandages or stockings on after the surgery. Do not remove them. They will be changed during your first office visit.

Office Visits: Your first post-operative office visit will be 2-3 days after your surgery. Your next visits are usually 6-7 days after your surgery.

Showering: You may shower 2-4 days after the surgery. DO NOT get the bandages wet.

Activity Level: You can resume your daily activity within a week after face surgery.

Sun Exposure: DO NOT expose the wound to the sun (or tanning bed) for at least 2-3 weeks after the surgery as severe burns can occur from minimal exposure. Scars must be covered when exposed to sun or tanning bed (so as not to hyper-pigment) until all redness is gone, about 3-6 months. You may use tanning creams.
