Lifestyle and Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, smoking and sun exposure are not only a consideration in terms of whether a patient can safely undergo, but they often determine the quality and longevity of surgical results.
Patients play a considerable role in the long-term success of their cosmetic surgery results. Patients who do not follow a healthy lifestyle after liposuction or a tummy tuck may be considerably less happy with their results. In the case of patients who have undergone facial rejuvenation, it’s essential that they learn proper techniques of sun protection to avoid accelerating the skin’s aging process and undoing the positive results of surgery.
The New Year is a great time to start adopting daily habits that promote good health—both in preparation for and following a cosmetic surgery procedure. Maintaining a healthy diet and weight, stopping smoking, moderating alcohol consumption, getting plenty of sleep, avoiding excessive sun exposure and reducing stress all have been shown to improve health, and in many cases, lengthen life. Cosmetic surgery can help patients achieve a better quality of life by improving both the way they look and the way they feel.
