As someone who doesn't necessarily have experience in surgeries, I would really welcome those who have experience to share some tips on what to do and what to avoid. For example, I saw somewhere that for facial surgeries, you should bring tops with buttons so you don't rub your shirt on your face, that you should avoid certain food or what you should bring in your luggage, etc. Basically, what you wish you had known or what you were glad you had.

Some advice not specific to any particular surgery - try and be in your best physical health when you go.  It just makes the recovery process that much easier. Also, I brought a before and 'after' picture (I photoshopped the same picture with my hoped for results) to help keep my spirits up. Calf reduction surgery has an active and painful recovery - you have to get up hourly and stretch, and it is HARD - and sometimes the only thing that got me out of the bed was that picture.
