Chicago, IL | Pre-Op Instructions Part 4 - The Night Before Your Procedure | Aesthetic Scalp
It's the night before your procedure. At this time: 1) Dr. Shah and the surgical will give you a call to check up on you and go over some instructions on what to expect on the day of your procedure. 2) Do not eat or drink anything at least 8 hours prior to your procedure. While you are under, food can travel from your stomach to your lungs and cause pneumonia. Taping a sign to the door letting you know not to eat or drink is a great reminder. 3) Bring a button down shirt with you. It prevents from having to pull a shirt over your face post-procedure. 4) Remind your caretaker / driver to be ready to take care of you that day. 5) If you have a beard, it is ideal to shave it off at least 25 hours prior to the procedure. 6) It is totally normal to be excited and nervous prior to your procedure.
