Pre-Operative Precautions (Fasting and Other Preparations)
  • Fasting for 3 hours before surgery
  • As a general principle, patients who are to be administered conscious sedation must fast for 3 hours, and this means that they must refrain from eating solid food such as candy and gum and drinking fluids such as coffee, milk and water. The reason for fasting is that before the anesthetics wear off regurgitation of solid content can occur, and the solid matter may enter the airway, causing asphyxiation or pneumonia. If you are scheduled to receive surgery in the morning, you should start fasting at midnight the night before.
  • No manicures
  • Oxygen saturation levels are measured by attaching a device to one of the fingers. So, patients are advised to refrain from applying nail polish before surgery
  • Shower and cleanse your face
  • Patients are advised to take a shower and thoroughly cleanse their faces on the day of the surgery, and remove their contact lenses before coming to the clinic.
  • No accessories
  • Patients are advised to refrain from wearing metal accessories such as rings and necklaces, and are advised to wear comfortable clothes.
  • Accompaniment of a guardian
  • It may be dangerous to drive after surgery, so patients are advised to use public transportation or bring a guardian with them.
Post-Operative Precautions
  • Posture
  • The head should be placed about 45° higher than the heart in order to prevent edema. (The torso should be positioned upright during sleep as well.) You can eat regular meals comprised of soft food after 3 days of surgery.
  • Swelling
  • Swelling is most significant from the day of the surgery to two days after. An ice pack should be stored inside the freezer and used during this period. Starting from Day 6, immerse a towel in warm water and remove excess water before placing it on the surgical site.
  • Cleansing
    and Makeup
  • Clean face and body, except the surgical area, with a water-drenched towel until stitches are removed. Light cleansing and makeup application are possible after the stitches are removed. Cleanse by gently splashing water. Be cautious for at least 2 weeks.
