Cosmetic rejuvenation should be viewed as an investment. You invest in your appearance and you manifest confidence as your ideal results come to fruition. However, money is not the only thing being invested when it comes to cosmetic surgery. It is also an investment of time and energy, and you want to make sure all the effort you put into your investment pays off.
*Individual Results May Vary*
Cosmetic rejuvenation is meant to last a long time and keep patients satisfied with their desired results, even years down the line. Just as it is important to take care of your body to stay in shape, the same must be done in the post-op stages of your cosmetic enhancements. Your results require upkeep and no matter how good the immediate gratification maybe, nothing can fully stop the effects of aging, lifestyle habits, and genetics.
The bright side is that these effects can be prolonged for as long as possible with proper maintenance. The below tips can guide you on how to live a healthy, stress-free life during recovery and afterward so that you can continue to look and feel great for years to come.
Sleep is an important part of healthy living. Cosmetic rejuvenation aside, it is recommended that healthy adults should get seven to nine hours of sleep every night to function at their best. Getting a good night’s sleep can boost your immune system, which aids your body with repairs. Even after the recovery period, getting enough sleep every night can work wonders for your body and overall well-being.
Some cosmetic procedures can transform your body, providing a more aesthetically pleasing look almost instantly. While the results are the closest thing we have to magic, this new look can only last if you remain at a healthy weight. The best way to maintain these results is to continue exercising regularly. Cosmetic rejuvenation aside, regular exercise can help you feel great and improve your overall health.
Eating healthy goes hand-in-hand with getting enough exercise. A well-balanced, nutritious diet will keep your skin looking fresh and youthful, which will enhance your surgery results, and keep it well-maintained for years to come. For the first week post-surgery, a nutrient-rich soft-food diet with low salt and sugar is recommended to prevent rapid skin aging. In addition, it is also recommended to stay hydrated, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and avoid excess alcohol and caffeine to maintain results.
Immediately following your procedure, proper care will make a big difference when it comes to scarring. Over time, great skincare will help your results look as good as new a few years down the road, just as they looked the day they were achieved. While it might come as a bit of a shock at first, scarring is a necessary aspect of many surgeries. It is critical to follow any postoperative activity restrictions and to protect incisions from the sun and from infection. Using topical scar creams and ointments recommended by your doctor can help with this. The right medical-grade skincare products can help enhance and maintain your cosmetic rejuvenation results long after the initial recovery stages. Your current skincare routine may have worked for you pre-surgery, but it is best to ask your doctor if any products you use will affect your results.
For the first few weeks during the initial post-op stages, it is best to avoid work and social obligations as much as possible. It is recommended to only associate with close family or friends who are supportive and positive to keep up morale, as it directly correlates with a healthy healing process. Any external stressors could potentially hinder your body from recovering properly.
Following all the above recommendations will provide you with your desired results that will look great for years to come. This newfound confidence will inspire you to maintain healthy habits, even post-procedure.

“I had a lower face and neck procedure around 1 month ago. Today I turned 65, so I wanted to write my review today. I had hoped I would look 10 years younger. I’m being told I look 20 years younger. The procedure was easy with minimal discomfort. The staff was great. Dr. Lanfranchi put me at ease during the procedure. His skills and bed side manner are excellent. I wish I could give him a higher rating. I’ve never been big on any kind of surgical procedure, but this was easier than some dental procedures I’ve had in the past. Would I do this again? No question…I would absolutely do it again. I now have confidence to hold my head high. I’m no longer afraid of pictures or to look in the mirror. My confidence level has gone way up. I love how I look. I only wish I had done this 10 years earlier. Thank you, Dr. Lanfranchi!” *
