Tips for staying healthy leading up to your surgery

  • by

Prior to your surgical procedure, there are a number of recommendations and precautions your doctor will advise you to follow to ensure a safe and effective operation. However, there are also a number of things you can do months in advance that will help ensure a smooth and successful procedure.

First and foremost it’s vital that you are 100% honest with your surgeon. Certain things like alcohol and cigarette consumption, family health history and emotional considerations like anger and anxiety can have an affect on your operation. It’s important that your doctor has a complete idea of your situation prior to planning the surgical procedure.

Talk to friends or others who have undergone similar cosmetic procedures and gather information about recovery times and realistic outcomes. Ask your doctor any question you have in order to help you get a complete and accurate idea of the procedure process, post-procedure recovery and ultimate results – we’re here to help and want you to be as informed as possible. The worst thing you can do is go into plastic surgery with an unrealistic idea of the process because you didn’t do your research.

Sleep, exercise and a healthy diet are three important components to leading a healthy lifestyle. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables is a good way to increase brain and heart health, and things like smoking, drinking alcohol or eating too many sugary foods should be avoided as much as possible prior to surgery.
