We want to thank you for taking the time to meet with all of us here. We hope that you love your new look and are pleased with your results. However, we would like you to remember the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle after a procedure. While no one can escape the process of aging on tissues, we all can help support your investment in having a procedure performed by maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise. Below are just a few tips to help you after your procedure:
Follow your post procedure instructions. Taking proper care of yourself post procedure will allow you to achieve optimal incisions lines. We have many products available to help minimize incision lines. You will be given detailed instructions of post procedure care at your consultation. Additionally, the morning after your procedure, one of your medical staff members will be contacting you and checking in on you to see how you are doing and to walk you through post-operative care. Please follow the instructions given to improve not only your recovery, but also your surgical outcome.
Maintain good daily habits. Weight loss and weight gain can impact your end surgical result so be mindful of maintaining your “happy weight” goals. Smoking can gravely impact your post procedure outcome due to its healing effects on the tissues. Let us know up front about your health concerns so that we can work together with you to help you achieve a desired outcome.
Cosmetic surgery recovery can be a challenge for active patients, as required recovery time will put a damper on your regular exercise routine. Don’t become discouraged and know that it isn’t abnormal to gain a little weight during your recovery period. Eating the right foods and introducing non-strenuous activity when it’s safe can help keep you healthy and make getting back to the gym easier once you’re healed.
