-Avoid smoking a week before the operation and do not smoke after surgery for at least a couple of weeks. IsIt has been proven that smoking can cause healing problems.


-Notify us if you have any pre-existing illness, special health condition or allergy to any medication.


-For those who travel from the province or abroad especially for the intervention, we normally have an appointment at the office one or two days before the surgery to do an in-person evaluation and take planning photographs. During this visit, the objectives of the intervention are reviewed again and any doubts are cleared up.

If the intervention was performed during the morning hours, we recommend having a normal dinner the day before the intervention, and not eating or drinking anything on the morning of the surgery. If the surgery is scheduled for the afternoon, the ideal would be to have a light breakfast at 6 or 7 in the morning and then remain fasted. Breakfast can be tea with sugar and two cookies, or similar.
