Recognizing the integral role of proper nutrition in the healing process, plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Romo is now an affiliated physician-distributor of MAP.

New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Romo, world-renowned for developing cutting-edge cosmetic and reconstructive surgical techniques, is breaking new ground in the area of post-operative healing. Dr. Romo now suggests patients take MAP™, a pure and virtually calorie-free protein supplement. MAP™ is a proprietary, patented formula of essential amino acids, proven in clinical studies and scientific research to be more nutritious, more easily digestible and safer than dietary proteins.

“My patients who use MAP™ prior to and following their procedures not only feel better faster, but have become regular daily MAP™ users,” says Romo. “The anecdotal evidence is overwhelming, and underscores the importance of a properly nourished patient, both pre- and post-operatively.” MAP™ is taken in tablet form; therefore requires just slight facial movement. This is a critical factor, especially in the hours and days immediately following surgery.

Further, MAP™ provides sufficient protein intake, without upsetting the digestive system. This is due to its efficient absorption rate, especially compared to that of dietary proteins. MAP™ may also mitigate post-surgical nausea caused by anesthesia, thanks to more balanced blood-sugar levels, even on an empty stomach. MAP™ also supports better sleep and wellbeing because its amino acid formula supports production of serotonin.

Clinical studies show MAP can act as a precursor for the synthesis of new lean tissue, such as skin and muscle mass, creating and environment an opportunity for the body to heal more quickly. As such, MAP™ augments longer-lasting results and prevents the formation of loose skin tissue. MAP™’s proprietary formula also promotes smoother skin, and therefore yields a more youthful look.

“Adopting a total-health approach is an emerging area in the field of plastic surgery, and I’m delighted to include MAP™ in my rapid recovery protocol,” says Romo.

Dr. Romo is the Director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and The Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York City, as well as the Director Emeritus of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.

He is past president of New York Facial Plastic Surgery Society and served as Eastern Regional Director of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery Society and Reconstructive Surgery from 1999-2004.

Dr.Romo has been cited as “Best Doctor in New York” for almost a decade, in the Castle-Connolly peer review survey. In addition, he is the author and editor of the textbook "Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery:A Mulitdisciplinary Approach" (Thieme Publishing, 2000).
