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.
