  • If your doctor recommends it, don’t eat or drink the morning of the procedure
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery

Your provider gives you a local, regional, or general anesthetic before surgery so that you don’t feel any pain. They make tiny incisions to remove or repair tissue and close the incisions before taking you to a recovery area.

You might be able to go home the same day, depending on which procedure you undergo. Follow all post-surgery instructions. Take medications as directed by your surgeon, get plenty of rest, and go to your follow-up appointments.
