Things You Need to Be Careful About Before Having an Almond Eye Surgery in Turkey
For every large endeavour, we must come prepared. Same goes for your almond eye surgery in Turkey. If you’ve already booked the procedure with us, here are a few things that you should keep in mind prior to your procedure.
Are You Taking Any Medications?
If you’re suffering from any ailment and are taking medication for it, you need to inform us about that. You also have to tell us about your routine medications. This will determine your suitability for the surgery. Our medical team will also do necessary blood tests on your arrival to Turkey. This way, we can ensure a smooth procedure.
Certain medications such as aspirin, Aleve, or ibuprofen should not be taken. That’s because they have an impact on your blood circulation. Carefully review the list of drugs containing aspirin and ibuprofen.
What Are You Eating and Drinking?
Make sure to not eat or drink anything, including water, after midnight, the night before your surgery. An almond eye surgery requires general anaesthesia so you’ll be unconscious.

Moreover, you should stop smoking two weeks before the surgery and avoid consuming alcohol.
What Should You Wear?
Most importantly, a sunscreen. You have to avoid sun damage two weeks before the surgery. We recommend you wear an SPF 30 or higher for adequate protection.
You also have to keep your clothes in mind. When coming to the clinic for surgery, it’s better to wear a zip-up or button-up shirt and slip-on shoes. Your clothes should be loose-fitting. They’ll make it easier for you to change before and after the surgery. It’s important that no harm comes to the surgical areas.
