Tips for Maintaining Surgery Results
You invest time and money into your cosmetic surgery procedure, so you want those results to last as long as possible. Fortunately, there are some easy steps you can take to keep your new look, whether your surgery involved facial rejuvenation or body contouring. Check out these tips from Rodeo Surgical Art to make the most of your positive results and maintain your youthful appearance for many years to come.
One of the best things you can do for your skin after any surgical procedure is protect it from the harmful UV rays of the sun. This exposure can quickly reverse any anti-aging benefits you may have received from your procedure, leading to skin laxity and the reappearance of facial wrinkles. In addition, sun exposure on incisions as they heal can affect how the scar will look well into the future. If you must be outside, wear a high-quality sunscreen at all times to prevent sun damage from occurring after your procedure.
You probably have heard, “You are what you eat,” and that is true for your skin, as well as your body. The more fresh foods you consume, the more nutrients the skin and body receive to keep them looking and feeling their best. In Beverly Hills, healthy eating is fast and easy, with these great juice bars to choose from: Pressed Juicery features a variety of fresh juices, as well as frozen treats and custom cleanses. Beverly Hills Juice has been serving up healthy juice blends and shots since 1975. Kreation Organic juices are made with certified organic ingredients from local farmers.
In addition to fresh juicing, adhere to a diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean dairy to maintain your post-operative glow.
Exercise is another important component to keeping your positive cosmetic surgery results. Regular activity promotes healthy blood flow, which gets oxygen and nutrients to your treatment area and the rest of your body. One beneficial way to get the blood pumping is a Pilates workout at one of these Beverly Hills locations:
- Natural Pilates is one of the most private studios in the Los Angeles area with a fully equipped studio to meet all of your fitness needs.
- Bodyline Pilates and Fitness features both private and group sessions for every fitness level, as well as certification for those wanting to become Pilates instructors.
- Align Beverly Hills Pilates Studio combines East and West Coast Pilates philosophies for a well-rounded workout that focuses on both toning and alignment.
Pilates is not the only way to get fit and maintain your cosmetic surgery results. Strength training, cardio workouts and yoga are also good options after your procedure. Make sure you wait to begin your program until Dr. Mashhadian determines you are fully healed and ready for that type of activity.
