Safe Cosmetic Surgery

May 9, 2008
Cosmetic surgery, just like any other medial procedure is inherently risky and can carry potentially devastating consequences which can scar you for the rest of your life. Luckily, most doctors and surgeons are highly skilled professionals, having worked years learning their trade and usually some more years after that before they are able to get to the stage of carrying about invasive procedures, which usually means the cosmetic surgery will be conducted by a highly skilled, highly experienced and consequently safe professional.

Unfortunately, however, this isn't always the case and sometimes problems may arise, whether it's a result of negligence, human error or just simple bad fortune. For the patient, there isn't much he or she can do while lying on the table, but there are ways before and after the procedure you can deploy to help you avoid infection and prevent most of the difficulties that can arise with such cosmetic procedures.

Cosmetic surgery usually entails major trauma to the body, while it is generally conducted privately for cosmetic reason (as the name implies), this kind of surgery can also be carried out for appropriate medical reasons such as low self esteem and disfigurement as a result of fire. As a result, you can never truly be prepared for any plastic surgery procedure unless you are consciously choosing to have the procedure carried out on your behalf.

If you have made the decision to have the procedure carried out, the first process you should attempt to do would be to improve your general fitness and health by increasing the amount of exercise you do and changing your diet to one that is high in vitamins and minerals. The fitness aspect of things will ensure that your body is able to cope with the trauma it will sustain and it will help you on the road to recovery sooner than if you were unfit. Likewise, the improvement in your diet will not only benefit your health, but it will also help provide a means in preventing infection and ensuring your recovery process will similarly be improved as compared to someone who has maintained a poor diet thus having a weaker immune system.

Another thing you should note before you have any cosmetic surgery is to refrain from smoking (if you're a smoker) for several weeks either side of the operation or alternatively you could just give up smoking altogether. Smoking can cause infection and will easily run down your immune system and your body's natural defenses that naturally help you recover from your condition and fight off any germs that make their way into your wound. Ideally, you would want to kick the habit altogether due to wider health implications, but if that is not an option for you, you should at least try to hold back smoking for at least a month or so until things have settled down.

Finally, it is very important that you ensure you take plenty of rest following the operation and do not go back to work or any other strenuous activity too soon. Whatever the procedure, there will be a period of time that you will require to recovery, so make the most of your time to relax and practically do nothing.
