Understanding how to prepare for surgery and take care of yourself during recovery are key components of achieving a successful outcome. Not only does proper preparation make our jobs easier, but it also ensures you remain safe and comfortable during every step of the treatment process. At Central Washington Oral & Facial Surgery, we make sure to provide you with instructions for both your pre- and post-operative care.
Pre-operative instructions are designed to get you ready for surgery by providing tips about what to wear and whether to avoid eating or drinking before your appointment. Your post-operative instructions will be more detailed and specific to your procedure, with guidelines about pain medication, diet, activity. It is our hope that you will review all relevant instructions before your appointment so that you arrive at our office feeling ready and informed. We will be happy to answer any questions not answered by your instructions before your procedure.
