    Before surgery, you can play an important role in your health. Preparing or “prepping” skin before surgery can reduce infections at the surgical site. You can reduce the number of germs on your skin by following these instructions.

    Instructions

    • Shower or bathe two times before your surgery with an antibacterial skin cleanser, once the night before surgery AND again on the morning of surgery.
