Once you have scheduled a date for your breast augmentation with Dr. Newman, you may still have questions about the details of what else to do. We encourage you to ask as many questions as you need so that you are comfortable as possible on the day of your breast augmentation. Below are some of the more practical answers to some of the questions you may have.
Christine Jewell, R.N., the Director of Surgical Nursing, will contact you the day before surgery with an exact time to arrive at the center. If our office is arranging transportation for you then she will give you all necessary information.
It is best to wear loose fitting clothing on the day of surgery. Sweat pants or loose fitting jeans are appropriate. Wear a button-down or zip-up top and avoid tops that pull over your head. A surgical bra will be provided for you and is usually already on when you wake up from surgery. You should bring socks and comfortable shoes. If possible wear underwear that is 100% cotton.
If you have your period on the day of surgery please bring several tampons.
Dr. Newman will give you prescriptions during your pre-operative visit. Please get these filled and bring all medications with you on the day of surgery. If you take medication other than what Dr. Newman has prescribed, please bring a list of your medications with you on the morning of surgery. This includes vitamins, over-the-counter medications and supplements. We need to know everything you take. The anesthesiologist will ask you for this information when they call you a day or two before your surgery.
If you wear contact lenses, please do not wear them on the day of surgery. Please wear your glasses and bring a case with you.
The consent forms required for surgery will be given to you during your pre-operative visit. Please read them and bring them back with you on the day of surgery. Dr. Newman will review them and answer any questions you have before you sign them.
