Can I wear makeup or jewelery?

Please leave valuables and jewelry at home. Body piercing should be replaced with a non-metallic version if possible or removed prior to surgery. Patients with pierced tongues may find an anesthesiologist hesitant to anesthetize them since the ring or stud may interfere with the placement of a breathing tube.

While minimal makeup is acceptable, eye makeup is not recommended since it may cause eye irritation when waking up from anesthesia.
