Things to remember the day before your operation

Have an empty stomach

If you are scheduled for a morning operation, you may eat and drink as normal until midnight on the evening prior to your operation. After that you must neither eat nor drink. Patients who are scheduled to receive surgery in the afternoon are allowed to have a light breakfast. Your doctor will discuss all this with you prior to the operation.

Avoid using skin-care products

You are kindly requested not to apply skin-care products to your neck or back, as they will make it hard for us to disinfect your skin.
