Getting cosmetic surgery to enhance beauty has become quite a popular option these days, especially for women. However, there are still certain steps that you need to take before and after surgery to get the best results.
Here are three tips you need to know in order to get the most out of your surgery:
- Change your eating habits and start exercising regularly
Body contouring methods have the ability to reconstruct your curves, supplying a more proportionate and pleasing look. The results of your body contouring treatment may seem like a dream come true; however, you will only keep these amazing results if avoid fluctuations to your weight.
Liposuction will eliminate all of the necessary fat cells, however, if you do gain that weight back, it will appear in various areas because the leftover fat cells will expand. Try and stay at a stable weight — so that you don’t stretch your skin out again which will only reverse all of the improvements you’ve worked so hard to obtain. By adapting a healthier diet and exercising regular you will maintain your cosmetic surgery results.
- Say goodbye to your unhealthy habits
What you introduce your body internally, not only can have an adverse effect on the results of your surgery, but it can also make a huge impact on your health.
Nicotine greatly affects the body’s ability to heal, resulting in longer recovery times and, in some cases, complications that can lead to bleeding, visible scarring and pain.
Maintaining lifelong healthy habits after surgery may be easier than you think. The positive side to cutting back on bad habits is that some patients feel much better and are genuinely happy with their improved appearance that they find motivation to continue with their healthy habits after their surgery.
- Take proper care of your skin
Scarring is an unavoidable result of nearly all cosmetic surgeries. However, cosmetic surgeon, Dr Laniewski, along with many of his colleagues will carefully position your incisions in a hidden area, ensuring that they heal perfectly and fade in time. Making sure that your scars heal nicely doesn’t fall solely in your surgeons hands. You also play a big part in the healing process because there are certain things you can do to help minimise scarring.
The most important thing to remember is to thoroughly follow the post-op instructions; these will assist you in preventing strain to your scars. You should also make sure that you clean the area regularly, avoid exposing your incisions to the sun and applying scar ointments and creams recommended by your cosmetic surgeon.
Great skincare is extremely helpful and most cosmetic surgeons have a skin specialist to help inform their patients on the right skincare products following surgery. If you already have a good skincare routine, you should still ask if you need to adjust anything before going forward.
