Cosmetic SurgeryGetting cosmetic surgery done – or any form of surgical treatment, for that matter – can be risky – noting that complications may arise at any given time, either during the surgical procedure or afterward, during the healing procedure. Therefore, taking certain precautions would be advised to ensure the entire process moves smoothly.

One useful tip that you can follow – especially if you happen to experience some form of pain after the surgical procedure, which is common – is to start a regime of anti-inflammatory medication (as recommended by your surgeon or doctor) or to apply a cold compress to the inflamed area – which helps deal with the pain, and brings any swelling in the room down as well.


One precaution to take – especially when going for a facelift or any other surgical operation that happens on your face, like a nose job; for example, it is recommended that you don’t wear any form of moisturizer or lotion on your face. This is to prevent any allergies or infections. This precaution can be extended to cosmetics, and it is recommended that any makeup shouldn’t be worn lest a condition occurs. Make sure that the area of surgery is kept clean and should be washed regularly.

Another tip to remember is to stay indoors for the time being – as the sun’s ultraviolet rays can harm the stitches and the surgical region – and applying sunscreen isn’t a useful substitute. Once the sutures are removed, apply any antibiotic or ointment per the surgeon’s or doctor’s recommendation.

Following a healthy diet is always a good recommendation and good advice to follow – especially because the medication you may be on because of the surgery may cause gastric problems – and if you have undergone facial surgery, you should stick to a liquid diet or a diet that your doctor has recommended. Avoid certain substances, like alcohol or nicotine, as there is no way to predict how these substances will react with your medication. While on any form of drugs, staying away from smoking or drinking is advised until the drug is fully out of your system.

One final tip is to stay in touch with your surgeon – to make sure that your diet is healthy and that you’re following the right precautions and steps to ensure that the healing procedure is smooth and effortless.
