If you’ve recently undergone a cosmetic procedure, you may be wondering how to maintain your post-surgery body.
For procedures such as a rhinoplasty and facelift, these are typically a one and done thing which requires no additional upkeep but for procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction and bum lifts, additional work is needed to help you looking and feeling your best.
When we say additional work, we don’t mean more cosmetic work, no we mean you need to put in the work to have you looking and feeling great.
Eating healthy and regularly working out is the best way to support your cosmetic surgery and its relativity easy to keep up.
Healthy eating is the best way to maintain your post-surgery results.
Undergoing a cosmetic procedure is a great way to make a change in your life so it only makes sense for it to be an opportunity to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
We’re not saying you need to diet for the rest of your life but instead make healthy choices. Instead of snacking on crisps and chocolate when you’re peckish opt for homemade health bars, nuts or fruit.
Make sure you’re having a balanced diet, avoid too many carbohydrates and saturated fats, opting for organic, homemade food over anything.
Everyone should be working out some way or another, whether it’s at the gym, going for a run before work or cycling of taking the bus.
Exercise is furthermore integral to your healing process and maintaining your post-workout body.
Before your surgery, you should aim to be a certain weight, as this may not only be safer for the procedure but it may also speed up your recovery and ensure you see better results.
For example, if you’re having tummy tuck surgery, you should aim to be a certain weight as the post-surgery work may be more difficult and results not as good.
When exercising after surgery, you should always take things slow and work at the rate of your body allows you. Don’t rush things but gently increase your workouts until you’re back to full fitness and you can resume a normal schedule.
