In brief: Follow instructions

The best advice would be to carefully follow the preoperative and postoperative instructions that your dentist or surgeon provides you especially if you are to be sedated.
Try to get a good night of rest prior to surgery, and wear comfortable clothing regardless if you are to be sedated or not.

In brief: Premedication

Premedication starting a day before wisdom teeth extractions with a mild steroid (decadron) and an anti-inflammatory (motrin) will do wonders at keeping swelling and pain under control after the procedure.
Review this with your treating dentist.
