4 Holistic Tips to Consider Before and After a Cosmetic Procedure


As the popularity of plastic surgery continues to grow, many patients are searching for ways to ensure that they achieve maximum results. Before a patient undergoes a procedure, plastic surgeons typically give them a few tips on how to prepare for pre- and post surgery. Some examples of these tips include: ceasing smoking and alcohol consumption and maintaining a healthy diet along with ingesting multivitamins.

Plastic surgeons provide patients with a variety of tips on how to get the most out of their cosmetic procedure, however there are ways in which we can take advantage of to ensure it as well. At Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery Associates, our patient’s safety, as well as satisfaction, is important to us. We want you to look and feel your best, so we have provided four holistic tips that you can do at home to maximize the outcome of your procedure.

1. Maintain a Healthy Diet

A healthy diet is crucial for any cosmetic procedure. It’s important that you focus on whole foods and foods that are rich in color, healthy fats and lean proteins. Foods that aren’t part of this diet (fried, gluten and dairy foods) create a poor environment for nutrient absorption. This diet, and ultimately lifestyle, is key for supporting your optimal beauty goals.

2. Drink Responsibly

What you allow your body to ingest may have a beneficial or adverse effect, depending on the food or beverage. If your days are attributed to the help of coffee or black tea, it’s highly recommended that you switch to green tea if you plan on undergoing cosmetic surgery. These beverages can stress out your body and reduce circulation to the skin, making the healing process difficult.

3. Eliminate the Sweets

Sugar and sugar alternatives have the ability to deform proteins and collagens necessary for optimal skin health. They promote the overgrowth of yeast in the body, hence causing inflammation and suppression of the immune function.

4. Avoid Vital Vitamins

In most cases, vitamins are more beneficial than harmful. However, when it comes to cosmetic surgery, they increase the bleeding time during a procedure. We recommend ceasing the consumption of vitamins one week before the procedure and start again when the plastic surgeon clears you.
