3 tips to maintain the results after an aesthetic procedure

aesthetic procedure

Any aesthetic procedure is an investment. Literally speaking, if you perform a blepharoplasty, for example, you are investing money in your health and appearance. It is also an investment of time and energy, and surely you want to make sure your efforts are worthwhile.

In our case, from BrightGlance and in my experience, current aesthetic procedures have high satisfaction rates from our patients. And most of them are delighted with the results after many years after treatment.

However, it is important to understand that your results require maintenance to keep fit. And that nothing can totally stop the effects of aging, life habits and genetics.

The good news is that there are some things you can do to successfully maintain your results in the coming years. That is the goal of what I want to share in this article.

1. A healthy diet and regular exercise are key

The procedures that seek to transform your skin and in general the contour of your body, have results that may seem magical. But the aspect achieved can only last if you remain at a healthy weight. For example, fat removal procedures such as liposuction, permanently get rid of specific fat cells, but if you gain weight, you will see that other remaining areas of fat cells expand.

This is why it is even more important to keep your weight within a stable range, especially if you have had a surgical procedure of elevation (such as tummy tuck or body lift) because that way you avoid stretching the skin, something for which you have surely worked hard to achieve .

The best way to maintain body contouring results, including for your eyes, is to continue exercising regularly and eat a healthy diet. In addition, emotionally you will feel very well, while taking care of your appearance.

Tip: Recovery after an aesthetic procedure can be a challenge for active patients. The required recovery time will put a brake on your regular exercise routine. Do not be discouraged and understand that it is normal to gain some weight during your recovery period. Eating the right thing and starting non-energetic activities when it is safe can help you stay healthy and make the return to the gym easier once you have recovered.

2. Skin care before and after requires good practice

Immediately after your procedure, proper care makes a big difference in healing. And as time goes by, your skin care will help make your results as good or better than ever.

First, healing is a necessary aspect of many surgeries and procedures. And while the surgeon does his job, making sure he heals optimally and everything fades very well over time, this is only part of the job. Above all, it is very important to follow the postoperative activity restrictions; These rules will help you avoid skin tension or possible stretching.

Second, be sure to protect yourself from the sun, keep the area clean, and use specialized skin care creams, such as the ones we have in BrightGlance that have been specially formulated by Dr. Noemí Lairet. Check them out on this link.

Then, these medical quality skin care products help you improve and maintain the results of the cosmetic procedure, especially when they are facial procedures (eyelids, dark circles, eye contour). Skin care is vital, in our case we take care of guiding patients and guiding them in best practices. Even if you already have a routine for your skin care, it is best to ask about specialized practices and products, such as Smart Bright.

Tip: Follow your doctor's aftercare instructions to the letter. There are many products on the market for skin care, which really have no medical endorsement and do not serve for post-aesthetic treatments.


3. Internal health is also external

What you put in and on the skin of your body not only influences the surgical results, it can be a big difference in your overall health. For example, many doctors require patients to quit smoking for at least a few weeks before and after any cosmetic procedure.

Nicotine greatly affects the body's ability to heal, resulting in prolonged recovery times and, potentially, complications can lead to more visible pain, bleeding and scarring.

For its part, excessive alcohol consumption is another obstacle that you will want to avoid; There are a number of health problems when we talk about alcoholic beverages.

Tip: You should be honest with your doctor about your lifestyle habits. Let him know if you smoke, the amount of alcohol you drink, any medications you are taking, and even the supplements or vitamins you use both internally and externally. Your doctor will indicate the steps you should take to prepare for the procedure to ensure your results are optimal.
