Believe it or not, but the after care for your surgery begins much before you have your surgery. Remember, it is always easier to recover from surgery if you are a healthy patient. Since cosmetic surgery does not pertain to a particular illness, it pays to take good care of yourself prior to the surgery to ensure speedy recovery. Eating healthy, giving up smoking and alcohol, minimizing caffeine etc for a specific period just before and after the surgery can make a lot of difference in how your body heals itself.
It is also important to follow up on your post operative appointments with the same diligence as the pre operative appointments. This will allow the physician to monitor your healing process and make changes to your drugs/ diet if required, which will assist you in your healing process. This is recommended even if you are healing well.
Make sure to let your care giver know of your limitations and dietary preferences as directed by the physician. Even simple herbs and teas can hinder your healing process, when taken without the prior approval of your physician.
Regularly eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and doing away with processed foods, caffeine, and other junk foods is recommended as well. Following the guidelines as directed by your physician will not only ensure a speedy recovery, but will also ensure a healthy life as well.
