Important Tips for Maintaining the Results of Your Cosmetic Surgery

January 10, 2014

cosmetic-surgeryIt seems that many patients consider cosmetic surgery as a magical and permanent alteration of a particular body part. While the transformation may indeed seem magical, it is certainly not permanent. That is, it won’t be permanent unless you follow some important tips for maintaining the surgical work you had done.

The Human Factor

It’s important to keep in mind that cosmetic surgery like a tummy tuck or liposuction can’t change the reason why you needed the surgery in the first place. In other words, it will remove the pockets of fat or flatten your stomach but if you engage in all the same activities that you did before the surgery, chances are you’ll end up right back where you started.

One of the more important tips to remember when it comes to maintaining your cosmetic surgery results is to change your psychology around so your daily actions match your new body. If you aren’t psychologically ready to care for the new body you’re about to get, you probably shouldn’t have the surgery until you are.

Consider Your Lifestyle

Cosmetic surgery is a quick fix, but you can’t live your life like it was. For long term success, you have to act like it took you months or years to achieve this result and the absolute last thing you want in the world is to lose it. That means watching what you eat on a regular basis and being active on a regular basis.

It means drinking more water and getting enough sleep and keeping your stress levels in check. It means doing all the little things, so the reason you wanted the surgery in the first place won’t re-emerge and cause trouble once again.

Make a Plan & Stick to It

The fact that your cosmetic surgery results are not permanent are why you should sit down with your surgeon and make a plan of action before you even schedule the surgery. Decide what you’re going to do and how you’re going to live and what kinds of changes you’re going to make, and stick to them when you return home.

The technological advances that have been made in cosmetic surgery make it a very effective choice when you want to tone up or trim down in ma hurry. Just remember that the surgery is just a surgery and even though it looks and feels incredible, it’s up to you to keep it that way.
