Recommendations for the day of your surgery

On the day of your surgery, consider wearing comfortable clothes, preferably with an easy-to-open shirt, and wear sweaters or hot socks as the surgery rooms tend to be quite cold. Your nails need to be unpainted and do not go with any type of accessories or makeup. You must arrive at the clinic at least 1 hour in advance, since you must perform some simple previous procedures such as: check in registration, preparation of a general medical history and the change of your clothes. If your surgery is under general anesthesia, you must have at least 6 hours of complete fasting. In most of the surgical procedures practiced by Dr. Clemencia, you can return the same day to your home/lodging and there will be no need to spend the night in the clinic. You should always go with company and this will be mandatory when your procedure is under general anesthesia. At the clinic, a team of nurses, nursing assistants and medical assistants will be waiting for you, they will be the link between you and your family, and their function is to assist and help you always.
