Vienna, VA (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Dr. Shlomo Widder, widely known as the “D.C. Butt Doctor” in the Washington, DC metro area, knows that having a cosmetic surgery can be an exciting, yet nerve-wracking time for a patient: especially when they do not prepare properly. Dr. Widder strongly believes that careful preparation will help patients when having procedures to get the best results during and after their cosmetic enhancements.
According to Dr. Widder, preparation for a cosmetic surgery begins at least two weeks before the operation, although having healthy habits earlier is always encouraged. A healthy lifestyle starts with preparing nutritious meals. Eating healthy and regular meals will boost the body’s immune system and healing process.
Incorporating fruits, vegetables, and proteins with every meal is essential for a balanced diet. Patients though, are encouraged to stop their intake of foods that are on a list supplied by the surgery center. This includes, but not limited to, food or supplements with high levels of salicylates and sodium, as this can cause excessive bruising and swelling. Foods that contain salicylates include tomatoes, almonds, cherries, cucumbers, oranges, peaches, all berries, and vinegar.
“Preparation for cosmetic surgeries should be taken serious and treated similarly to preparing for a medical surgery,” said Widder. “Not following preparation recommendations can lead to severe complications. Knowledge and education leading up to and following the surgery are key.”
Patients should also cut out their drug and alcohol intake. Alcohol consumption should be suspended because when consumed close to the surgery date, could cause increased bleeding. Smoking affects a body’s blood flow throughout the body and should be stopped at least two weeks before the surgery. A patient who does not heed this warning could affect the healing process and be more susceptible to significant complications.
Medications should be checked to make sure they will not interfere with the surgery as well. Medications that contain blood-thinners, anti-inflammatory agents, and contain high levels of Vitamin E should be brought to the attention of the patient’s cosmetic team.
Widder’s best preparation advice is simple: “If you are unsure whether your pre-surgery preparation and post surgery care are benefiting or harming you, always contact your cosmetic team.”
