How to Look Your Best After Plastic Surgery
After you have plastic surgery, you might notice other aspects of your appearance or lifestyle that you might like to focus on such as your skin, hair or diet. These characteristics can have a bigger impact on your looks than you may realize. Whether you’ve had a face lift or breast augmentation, keeping track of your nutrition and overall health will have you turning heads on your next night out.
Watch Your Waistline
Breast augmentation and other similar plastic surgeries require quite a bit of downtime. Beware: This makes it easy for you to indulge in comfort foods during the healing process. Paying attention to your nutrition and diet post-surgery will ensure that you look fantastic when the stitches are taken out, and your bruises have healed. Speak with Dr. Angelchik on the best ways to meet your nutrition needs after surgery.
A Fitness Plan
Dr. Angelchik will tell you when it’s okay to resume your regular work-outs. You should stay away from heavy lifting for at least two months after undergoing plastic surgery. If you don’t have a regular exercise regimen, it’s time to develop one with help from a skilled physical trainer. The results you see from surgery will last longer if you keep up with exercise. This especially applies to those who have lost large amounts of weight and had skin removed, or those who have had liposuction.
One more thing: Plastic surgery is not a cure for fluctuating weight. Keeping up with exercise will keep your body, even in your skin, in tune with your ideal appearance goal. Working out will reduce your risk of future complications and repeat surgeries.
Plastic surgery can change your life in many ways. You can rid yourself of unwanted wrinkles or correct uneven breasts. But taking care of your mind and body afterwards is key.
