Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

4 Ways To Take Excellent Care Of Your Body After Having Plastic Surgery

by Michelle Austin

If you are having any type of plastic surgery, such as a tummy tuck, it is important you understand the recovery process. If you want to get the desired results, you are going to need to make sure you take your recovery as seriously as you took the process of preparing for plastic surgery.

#1: Make Sure You Have a Support System in Place

You may be having plastic surgery, but you are still having surgery. Any type of operation is serious and requires you to have a support system in place to help you with the recovery process. In the first few days after the operation, you are going to want to take it easy. You are going to want to have someone to help you run your household, and ideally, prepare your meals.

Share with a few trusted family and friends about your upcoming procedure, and make sure they are on board with supporting you in the recovery process. If necessary, hire some people to help you with daily tasks in the immediate days after your surgery so you can take things easy and allow your body to heal.

#2: Take Time Off Work

Don't just think you can suck it up because you are having plastic surgery. Many people dismiss plastic surgery as somehow being less than other types of surgery, but you are going to be put under anesthesia, and someone will cut into and work on your body. You need to take a week or two off work so that you have time to allow your body to fully heal before you get back to your regular schedule.

#3: Focus on Eating Healthy

As you are working on your recovery, you are going to want to eat healthy food that will allow your body to heal. This is not the time to indulge in junk food. You are going to want to create a meal plan beforehand for a high calorie and notorious food that is going to help your body recover. You can shop and prepare the meals beforehand, or at least prep them, so it is easy for you to stick to a healthy diet as you recover.

#4: Listen to Your Doctor

Finally, when you are recovering, it is important to listen to your doctor. Ask your doctor to go over all post-surgery care information a few days before your operation, so you can process the information with an alert mind and body. Have your doctor review that information after your procedure, and if you are going to have someone help you, make sure they hear your doctor's instructions as well.

When it comes to plastic surgery, such as getting a tummy tuck or a nose job, you need to have a support system in place, take time off work to recover, and build a healthy meal plan to support your recovery. Always follow your doctor's instructions, and if there is something that you are not sure about as you go through the recovery process, reach out to your doctor.
