Our patients often ask how to prepare for your Oculoplastics Surgery. In short here are the 5 steps to help make your experience smooth.Eyelid surgery or oculoplastic before and after.

  1. We may ask you to discontinue the use of blood thinners 1 week prior to surgery, depending on co-management with your primary care doctor.
  2. Work with us to schedule a pre-operative appointment with your primary care doctor to clear you for surgery.
  3. Please do any heavy lifting before surgery. Afterward, we may ask you not to lift more than 10-15 lbs to avoid any straining that may affect your results.
  4. Get those vacations done! Do NOT use hot tubs or swimming pools for 2-4 weeks following surgery.
  5. Pick up medications that you may need following your surgery ahead of time.

Following these 5 easy steps will help ensure you achieve the results you want as smoothly as possible.
