5 tips for maintaining the results of your cosmetic surgery

Once you see the exciting results of your plastic surgery, you’ll want to do what you can to maintain results. While you can slow down the hands of time, there are many things you can do to make the most of your investment in yourself.

Eat well. A healthy lifestyle is beneficial in so many ways, but it is especially important when you undergo plastic surgery. Good health not only reduces risks during surgery, but it will help you during recovery to promote better healing. Put the right nutrients into your body and consume a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of water, and avoid smoking if you gave it up before surgery.

Get moving. You will have certain limitations after surgery, so it’s essential to follow your surgeon’s advice. Depending on the type of procedure done, you’ll most likely ease back into exercise. But it’s important to get back to the activities you enjoy and help you feel and look good.

Take good care of your skin. You’ll need to protect your skin when exposed to the sun, especially after a surgical procedure to protect your new skin and any scars that are healing. Wear a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Wear sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats to protect your eyes and face. Also, get in the habit of following a daily skincare regimen with products that are right for your skin type and concerns.

Follow your surgeon’s advice and keep all follow-up appointments. You will have specific instructions on what to do in the days, weeks and months after your surgery. You must follow these instructions as closely as possible to help with healing and maximize results. You will have follow-up appointments depending on the procedure you have done, and keeping those are essential to ensuring your recovery and results are on course.

Complement your new look with non-surgical treatments. If you’ve had a facelift, eyebrow lift or eyelid surgery, you may find that Botox and dermal fillers can add to your new look and prolong results.

3 cosmetic procedures to look your best this summer

Summer is just beginning, but it’s not too late to get your body ready for the warmer temps and the more revealing clothing the season brings. Some procedures have a longer recovery period or simply aren’t recommended if you’re planning to be out in the sun too much. These minimally invasive or non-invasive procedures, however, promise quick results with minimal downtime.

Botox and dermal fillers

Highly praised for delivering quick results with no downtime, cosmetic injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers can help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles to give you a more youthful appearance this summer and beyond. Botox takes care of the wrinkles and expression lines on the top third of your face, including the forehead, between the eyebrows and the crow’s feet around the eyes. Fillers such as Radiesse, Juvederm, Bolotero and Voluma work together to help restore lost volume and soften wrinkles.

Laser hair removal

Showing off more skin during these warmer months usually means more regular grooming of body hair. Laser hair removal is a popular procedure that removes unwanted hair from several areas on the body. For men, this is most often shoulder and back hair. For women, this is often the bikini line, underarm and leg hair.


For stubborn fat that is resistant to diet or exercise, liposuction is an ideal minimally invasive procedure that uses small cannulas to remove fatty deposits from the face and body. Liposuction helps reduce saddlebags, love handles and remove fat from the tummy and other areas of the body to help you have a better proportioned and slimmer figure.

You can expect to have the most swelling 48 hours after the liposuction procedure, but some patients experience very little swelling or bruising. Most patients only require over-the-counter pain medications for pain or discomfort. After three weeks, you can resume all activities. You will need to wear a compression garment for four weeks after surgery to help your skin retract.
