Wash the area of surgery scrupulously just the day before the operation. Use antibacterial soap for the purpose. Never apply any makeup, cosmetics or toiletries on the area post cleaning.

Remove Nail Polish

Remove nail polish from your fingers the day before the surgery. This is essential for assisting the process of anesthesia.

Keep Stomach Empty
