BEFORE ANESTHESIA

•    You may not have anything to eat or drink (including water) for 8 hours before the appointment. Any medications should be taken with a very small sip of water.

•    A responsible, licensed adult must accompany the patient to the office, must stay in the office during the procedure, and drive the patient home.

•    Wear loose fitting clothing with short sleeves or sleeves that can be rolled up past the elbow and low-heeled shoes.

•    Do not wear lipstick, excessive makeup, or black nail polish on the day of surgery.

•    If you have an illness such as a cold, sore throat, stomach or intestinal problems, please notify the office.

•    If you take routine medications, please check with Dr. Clayhold or a member of our staff before your surgical date for instructions.
