We like life to be easy. For the most part, the middle-aged and young adults of today grew up in an era where getting what they wanted was relatively easy. Hungry? Pop a pot-pie in the microwave! Even now, those who wish to address the signs of aging needn’t wait any longer than they would for lunch to be delivered to see a fresh new face in the mirror. The point is, life is easier today than it ever has been. It’s no surprise, then, to realize that plastic surgery patients are interested in know how they can speed up their recovery.
Surgery is surgery, so regardless of the technique used during any particular cosmetic surgery procedure, there will be some downtime for recovery. Sure, some procedures may need more time than others; a tummy tuck may ask you to do very little for the first few days and then will allow you to gradually recover over several weeks, whereas a mid-face lift may have you back to your usual routine within a week. However, because surgery is surgery, recovery is also recovery. Here, we offer some tips on maximizing your recovery no matter what procedure lies ahead.
One of the most important notes we can make about surgical recovery is that it actually begins before any work is done. Pre-op instructions aren’t mere suggestions; they are steps that will lead you into your surgery day with the fullest capability to heal well. Post-operative instructions are a complement to the initial guidelines, reducing the risks of complications after surgery.
If you are interested in reducing risks and promoting expedited healing, we encourage you to follow the instructions provided to you as strictly as possible. General tips for post-surgical healing include:
There are several ways to make the most of your surgical recovery. First, we need to discuss how to make the most of your appearance. Call our Pottsville or Hazleton office to learn more.
Entering into this new year, or any new year, one of the messages we receive loud and clear is what is on trend for the months ahead. Many of us watch these trends, or even follow them, with great pleasure. They tell us what to wear, what to drive, what music is now in, and even how we should look. Have you noticed that trends span many of the areas of life? That what men and women are wearing could actually create a craze in the area of body type?
If you imagine the “it” girls of today, who comes to mind? Kim Kardashian? Nicki Minaj? Maybe Beyonce or J.Lo? What these trendsetters have in common is a beautiful backside, a feature that has become so valued in today’s age that there is actually a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to help individuals get a more rounded, more bootylicious booty. Clearly, we do not abide by the mindset that a man or woman should not change their body or face through cosmetic surgery. At the same time, we do want to bring to light how trends may not be a good thing to follow, especially when it comes to your body type.
The thing about Trends . . .
As you can see, trends do not stay the same for long! Someday, Ms. Kardashian and those like her may wish for a taller, thinner, less curvy frame. The point is, your body type is your body type, and that is a beautiful thing. Cosmetic surgery and other treatments are intended to accentuate what you have so you’re always in style!
