Your Role in Maintaining Facial Cosmetic Surgery Results

The first step toward ensuring optimal, natural results from your plastic surgery procedure is selecting a highly qualified Toronto facial cosmetic surgeon

While most patients recognize that a surgeon’s skill and expertise are vital to achieve the results they desire, they may not consider their own important role in ensuring the best possible outcome. The way that you prepare for surgery and follow recovery instructions closely is essential because once you go home, your surgeon is counting on you to continue their plan. As such, it is important to listen attentively to your surgeon’s advice and follow all pre- and post-operative instructions carefully.

Plastic surgery can be expensive, but it is an investment worth making

Protect Your Skin

To prolong the results of your procedure and ensure that your scars heal well, it is important to take care good care of your skin. To allow your wounds time to heal, avoid wearing makeup for the first few days after your facial plastic surgery procedure. Once makeup is reintroduced, take great care to ensure that it is thoroughly removed each night. Carefully select high-quality skincare products, paying close attention to their list of ingredients, to ensure that you maintain a youthful complexion to complement your look. Sunscreen should be applied liberally each day. Although this is particularly important during the first year of scar maturation following your procedure, it is advisable to continue wearing sunscreen regularly and avoiding prolonged sun exposure to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can cause premature aging.

To learn more about what you can do to maintain optimal results after your plastic surgery procedure, we invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Torgerson, a top facial cosmetic surgeon in Toronto.

Boost your confidence and improve appearance

Live a Healthy Lifestyle

Both before and after your procedure, it is imperative that you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patients who are in good physical health are more likely to experience a speedy recovery. A diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables will help you look and feel your best. Likewise, drinking plenty of water will ensure that you stay hydrated, improving your skin’s elasticity and encouraging a youthful glow. Conversely, alcohol and cigarettes should be avoided both before and after your surgery. Alcohol can be dehydrating, which may accelerate the aging process. In large quantities, alcohol can also affect bleeding, which is not desirable before surgery. Nicotine is known to impair circulation and starve the surgical site of much-needed oxygen. Delays in healing not only increase the risk of infection, but may lead to pronounced scarring. Thus, it is necessary to quit smoking prior to your procedure, and it is important to avoid it throughout the healing process. Your beautiful face will be well worth it!

Attend all post-operative appointments

Following your procedure, your surgeon will schedule one or more post-operative appointments to monitor your recovery and ensure that you are healing well. It is imperative that you attend all post-surgical appointments to have surgical dressings replaced, discuss any further instructions, and ensure that you are on track. These appointments will also provide you with the opportunity to ask questions and will give you peace of mind throughout your healing process.
