If you are going for a surgery then it would be better if you visit your doctor before you one or two weeks of surgery. Your doctor will carefully review all the medical conditions and the medications you are currently having. After your doctor reviews all the procedure and answers all your questions about the eyelid surgery.
Your doctor will then give you written instructions of where the surgery will take place along the vitamins, medications or even herbs to avoid for at least two weeks during and after the surgery. Also, you will get some additional instructions that may be very beneficial for you to apply during the surgery.
