Cosmetic Surgery Tip #32: Get enough essential nutrients

Untitled 2.001

You should supplement your diet before and after surgery with high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, copper and selenium.  Each plays a role in wound healing and in building the immune system thereby reducing the chance of infection.   Obtaining sufficient nutrients is especially important for recovery after more comprehensive procedures like a tummy tuck, facelift or liposuction.

Mommy Makeover with Body Lift & Breast Reduction. The Mommy Makeover is a term for a group of cosmetic procedures that many mothers seek following pregnancy. After multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding, many women find it impossible for diet and exercise alone to restore their figures. Fortunately, mothers with permanently altered figures find that a Mommy Makeover is an excellent solution just like this patient found after having a Body Lift and Breast Reduction. The B & A photos at 3 months show a much more youthful figure and perkier, more shapely breasts.

Cosmetic Surgery Tip #26: Stay well-hydrated by drinking water

Tips.016

It is important to drink at least 6-8 glasses of high quality water each day and especially the day prior to surgery, to help cleanse and hydrate the body.  Water is especially important prior to surgery, as fluid intake is reduced the day of surgery.  To avoid complications during surgery, be sure that you do not drink anything after midnight the night prior to your surgery, unless told otherwise by your plastic surgeon.
