Preparing for Surgery
If you are on prescription medication, please continue to take them unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
Please inform us if you are taking any:
- Blood pressure medicines
- Blood thinners such as Coumadin, Plavix, Aspirin, Advil, Motrin or other aspirin-like medicines
Please inform us if you have:
- Artificial joints or valves
- A pacemaker in your heart
- Any bleeding disease
- Any problems with your immune system
Please do not take the following for the 7-10 days prior to surgery, as they increase the chance of bleeding:
- Vitamin E
- Ephedra or other nutritional supplements
Please get a good night sleep, eat normally the day of surgery, and bring a light snack with you. You may also want to bring a book, magazine or music to keep you occupied and entertained while you wait.
You can drive yourself to your appointment as there will be no general anesthesia or other sedating medications used. However, feel free to bring a friend or family member to accompany you if you would like the extra support or company!
We want you to have a great experience. If you have further questions regarding how to prepare for your dermatological surgery, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
