A few extra steps can make plastic surgery recovery quick and easy

When preparing for any plastic surgery procedure there are some simple things you can do to prepare yourself.  The first step is to make sure you feel comfortable with the decision and are as stress free as possible.  Stress puts unneeded pressure on the body which can make it slower to recover.  Research relaxation methods such as deep breathing or meditation practices.  Remember that doubt the day prior to any procedure is normal and it’s best to plan on ways to cope with it.

Avoiding smoking and drinking two weeks prior to the procedure will also help speed up the recovery.  This can obviously be difficult for some people to do but will provide positive results for the sacrifice.

It’s also important to check your refrigerator.  This might sound weird, but healthy eating is critical to recovery so make sure you have the right foods before hand.

Arranging for someone to be close by during recovery is also important.  This will help limit stress and make it easier for you to rest.  They can also help with any emotions that can arise from surgery.  Doing these things will make it possible for you to enjoy your new look more quickly.

Covering up immediately after plastic surgery can help you feel more comfortable.

Many people are improving their appearance with plastic surgery and winter is a great time to go for it.  Most people are home more in the winter and able to take time off more easily.  The cold also limits many activities.  This makes it easier to recover from any procedure that is done.

Most any plastic surgery will require a small amount of time for recovery and cause some bruising which many may prefer to avoid being seen with.  Since people are less active and not out as often in the winter they are able to limit their exposure with the bruises.

If they do need to be seen in public there are some easy ways to cover the blemishes up.  Normal concealer can work wonders on lighter bruisers.  Products such as Dermablend to cover facial and neck marks or Kat Von D tattoo concealer which can cover large marks.  Erase Paste by Benefit can also work when using it in combination with foundation makeup.  If the bruises still need a little bit more then consider trying a mauve lipstick with concealer under.  Bruise covering kits are also available.

By trying some of these things people are able to still be active without having to continually explain what the bruises are from.
