preparing for surgeryReduce your sodium intake one week before surgery while boosting your water consumption; a well-hydrated body recovers faster. A week prior, concentrate on your diet and nutrition, as well as obtaining enough of rest and lowering your stress levels. Make arrangements for transportation to and from the hospital, and double-check a few days before surgery to ensure that everything is in order. Pack everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay in the hospital, and you’re ready to go! Please contact Raleigh Plastic Surgery for more information.
