Nutritional Benefits for Surgery at Boulder Plastic Surgery
Proper nutrition is very important in daily living, but it is essential before surgery and during the healing process after surgery. A well-balanced diet with proper vitamins and minerals is recommended for patients seeking a cosmetic surgery procedure, as your body will heal more quickly when given the nutrients it needs. Better nutrition can also decrease the chances of infection and speed up your recovery time.
Organic foods are on rise, which is good, because eating healthy, limiting stress, and exercise all help in maintaining optimal health. At Boulder Plastic Surgery, we are here to provide you with the knowledge needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle before and after surgery, and we encourage a well rounded health regimen for all of our patients.
Recovery From Surgery Requires Optimal Nutrition
If you do not follow a proper diet plan, you may not be giving your body the proper nutrients it needs on a consistent basis, and you may therefore be more prone to illnesses, fatigue, and stress. Proper hydration is also a key component in maintaining wellness and healing. This is why essential nutrients are so important during times of recovery from any injury, trauma, or surgical procedure. Our board-certified surgeons at Boulder Plastic Surgery have a disciplined program for nutritional support designed to get you ready for your surgical procedure as well as promote a quicker healing time so you can get back to your daily activities sooner.
Some nutrient programs may include intravenous therapy, in which nutrients are provided directly through the bloodstream. Nutrients given this way are highly beneficial, and can include vitamins, minerals, and amino acids specifically tailored to the healing process. While oral vitamins are always good, they sometimes have limited absorption due to the effects on the digestive process right after surgery. I.V nutrients can give double the nutrient value needed in the post-operative recovery stage.
Boulder Plastic Surgery offers a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere for all appointments and procedures, and immediate recovery is monitored by a registered nurse administering I.V. nutrients. The length of the infusion usually lasts about thirty minutes. The nutritional protocol regimen before cosmetic surgery contains vitamin/mineral consumption one week before surgery and three weeks after, although continuing to take vitamins on a regular basis with a healthy diet is recommended. In addition to the standard regimen of nutritional therapy, I.V. therapy may be given a week prior to surgery and during the week after surgery.
