Preoperative Preparation and Anesthesia

  • William P. D. Chen


For cosmetic blepharoplasty I rountinely prescribe Diazepam 10 mg 1 tab at 60–90 minutes prior to the procedure. This allows a good period of time for the sedation as well as analgesic effect to take place. Patients may often have been nervous and sleepless the night prior to coming in, or they may have traveled a bit before getting there and most can use the premedication.
