Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) - Preoperative Preparation

Congratulations! You have decided to have eyelid surgery. How do you prepare for your procedure?

Before the surgery, the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center will send you a list of items to get and medicines to avoid. The following should help.

Two weeks before surgery avoid the following:

For example:

One week before surgery start the following:

Dr. Mandell-Brown’s office should have sent a vitamin packet. Start taking Vitamin B and C each day for a week before and then continue for a week after the surgery. These two vitamins help the tissues heal after surgery. Do not take more than the one vitamin each day.

Purchase the following items to be used after surgery:

Make sure you have your history and physical completed along with any recommended lab work.
Relax the night before surgery. Do not eat or drink anything after midnight.

The morning of surgery thoroughly wash your face and hair before arriving at The Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center. Remember, no coffee or other fluids.
