How You Can Keep Your Plastic Surgery Results Going
Regardless of which plastic surgery procedure you select, there are a few things you can do to protect the investment you’ve made in yourself so that you can keep the results going as long as possible.
We’ll talk about them in this issue.
Do What the Doctor Says
You should receive pre- and post-procedure instructions from your doctor. Follow them. If you don’t fully understand the doctor’s instructions, do not hesitate to ask questions.
Remember, the instructions your doctor provides aren’t suggestions; rather they are rules for making sure you get the best possible results from your procedure.
If You Had a Skin Procedure, Protect It From Sun Damage and Scarring
The sun can do a serious number on your skin. That’s why it’s crucial to always wear sunscreen when you’re out and about, and to avoid staying in the sun for too long.
While your doctor will take special care to limit any scarring, be sure to use only the topical scar creams and ointments that are recommended.
If you smoke, quit. Smoking actually hinders your blood flow and will slow the overall healing process. It will also cause your face to age quicker.
Health Conscience Diet and Regular Exercise
If you had a weight or body contouring procedure, the best way to keep those results going is to commit to eating healthy and exercising regularly. Any fat cells that were removed during your procedure will be replaced fairly quickly if your diet is not carefully watched.
Regular exercise is especially helpful as it stretches the underlying muscles.
Avoid heavy consumption of alcohol. While some researchers say that a glass of red wine can be beneficial, excessive amounts of alcohol can actually dehydrate you.
