There is absolutely no point in undergoing expensive plastic surgery procedures if your body reverts back to its original shape or reacts poorly to the procedure. The good news is there are very simple things you can to in order to maintain your new, fabulous body.
One of the most effective ways you can ensure that your body will be prepared to accept the surgery is to be healthy. For example, having good circulation can lead your body to accepting fat transfers and incorporating implants. This circulation can be increased through exercise and diet.
Everyone knows that smoking can be detrimental to one’s health, but you may be unfamiliar to the effects of smoking on plastic surgery patients. First, smoking can increase the signs of aging and make the face look hollow. These can lead an otherwise healthy person to want the plastic surgery procedure in the first place. Second, cigarettes and other tobacco products fill the body with toxins. These toxins can fill the bloodstream and make it difficult for the blood to do its job, delivering oxygen to the healing cells.
Follow Your Doctor’s Instructions
Every procedure will require different approaches to recovery, and there will be a variety of reactions to the surgery. Your doctor will be a highly trained medical professional. He or she will know the intricacies of the procedure, including warning signs and unusual symptoms. Your doctor will also know your body and can anticipate how you might react to the procedure. It is of the utmost importance to follow your doctor instructions to the letter. You may be asked to do something that you find silly or difficult in your condition, but doing everything your doctor says is the best way to ensure success.
Anticipate Follow Ups
Although your doctor will work hard to make you look your best now, your body will continue to age and change over time. There are many procedures that you may want to have repeated or touched up. As you heal, touch ups may be required to ensure the success of the surgery.
Love Your Body
