Choose a Suitable Time for Surgery

If you have decided to undergo an aesthetic surgery procedure, you should plan the timing of the surgery carefully. Such procedures are mostly elective, and you will have the flexibility to schedule it according to your convenience. The best time for your surgery would be a period of relatively good health.

When you feel physically and mentally fit and confident, your immune system will have the best chance for a smooth surgery and rapid recovery. If you are working, or even otherwise, choose a period of least stress when you are not distracted by other compelling preoccupations.

 

Add Vital Nutrients to your Diet

Any plastic surgery procedure will take its toll on your body. You will be in a stronger position to combat the challenge when you supplement your diet before and after surgery with essential nutrients. You will probably need high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, selenium, and copper.

Each element plays a vital role in building immunity and wound repair. Healthy dietary supplements will help reduce your risk of infection during and after the surgery. Increase your protein intake, stay well-hydrated and keep a balanced diet for several weeks before and after the surgery.

 

Use Arnica Montana and Bromelain

For centuries, homeopathic Arnica Montana has been recognized as a treatment for bruising and swelling arising from soft tissue injury. It is available in the form of easy to dissolve tablets as well as topical form.

Bromelain is enzyme obtain from pineapple extracts. Studies have shown that compounds in Bromelain can reduce pain, swelling and inflammation following a surgery. Use these treatments in consultation with your cosmetic surgeon.

 

Avoid Aspirin, Tobacco, and Alcohol

You will have to stop using Aspirin or Aspirin-containing products for at least two weeks prior to the surgery. It is a blood thinning medication that can increase the risk of bleeding during the surgery.

It is also recommended that you avoid drinking alcohol for at least 72 hours before and after the surgery because it can suppress the immune system. Smoking can inhibit wound healing and delay recovery. The surgeon will require you to stop smoking at least two weeks before the surgery.

 

Minimize Physical and Mental Stress

Surgery can be stressful experience for many people. Optimal outcomes can be achieved when you manage to go through the surgery with minimal stress. Participate in relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga and listen to soothing music.

Seek the support of your family and friends to help you through this stressful journey. From receiving their physical assistance with household chores to having strong emotional support, having friends and family around will keep you de-stressed.
