You've had your consultations, you've chosen your implants, you're prepped and organized. It's the night before the BIG day. You might be excited or nervous, but you should definitely be ready.
I've said before, your pre-op assessment is the last big step before your breast implant surgery but the night before is a pretty big deal too!
Are You Ready?
Hopefully you are, girl!
By the night before your surgery you should be prepped and organized for the big day. All that's left to do really is a get a good nights sleep. And, the best piece of advice I can give you is...
Don't do anything differently.
The night before surgery is about eating well and relaxing.
Now I know that may be easier said than done! The night before any big event can leave you on a roller coaster of exciting highs and nervous and doubtful lows.
Whether you're a routines kinda gal or not, the following may give you a few things to focus on at this last milestone before your surgery:
- Get your bag ready - you've hopefully already packed your bag for the hospital but sometimes it can help if you check you've got everything you need.
- Skin prep - the night before surgery you may be asked to shower using a medicated soap (this is to reduce the risk of infection from any bacteria on the skin). Don't shave (in the surgical area) though.
- Eating and drinking - make your last meal something that's easily digested (nothing too spicy or heavy) and have a light snack just before you have to start fasting. Once you're nil by mouth there'll be no last minute eats or drinks! Check with your surgeon though, as you may be able to still drink a small amount of water up to a few hours before your surgery.
- Keep everything else the same - make sure you take your regular meds (as long as they've been okayed by your surgeon).
And, perhaps most important of all, make it an early night. You may find you have a restless night and it's not uncommon to have a boobie nightmare in the days before your surgery!
Taking care of any last minute details the night before your surgery can help you feel ready for the big day ahead. Then you're just one sleep away from the new boobs of your dreams :)
