Cosmetic Surgery Tip #32: Get enough essential nutrients
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.
