5 Things You Should Know About Plastic Surgery

Wednesday, June 8, 2016 | 2:20 am

Ensuring a full recovery after plastic surgery involves taking time before to prepare yourself for it and sufficient time after to follow your doctor’s instructions to allow full recovery. With sufficient rest and care, your cosmetic procedure is much more likely to be comfortable and successful.

1. Start Healthy – the best way to ensure a good outcome after your cosmetic surgery is to go into the procedure in the healthiest state possible. If you are a smoker, quit smoking a few weeks before the procedure. Follow a healthy lifestyle including healthy balanced diet and regular exercise to keep your body strong and at an optimal weight.

2. Get Support – most doctors want patients to have assistance at home for 24-72 hours after a surgical procedure. This allows you to rest and recuperate, while someone else is responsible for preparing your food and keeping you comfortable during the immediate recovery time.

3. Follow Instruction – doctors provide patients with complete post-operative instructions after plastic surgery, and these directions should be followed as closely as possible for best results.

4. Be Realistic – the truth is that when you undergo plastic surgery of any kind, you are bound to look worse before you look better. Swelling and bruising is not uncommon after these procedures, which can make you feel uncomfortable about going out in public or heading back to your office.

5. Protect Your Skin – once you begin going outdoors after surgery, it is very important to properly protect your skin from the damaging UV rays of the sun. Use a sunscreen that contains a minimum SPF of 15 and wear a hat whenever possible.
