When patients choose to undergo cosmetic surgery, they do so expecting long-term results. There are also some steps that you can take to ensure your results are long-lasting. Read on for some tips on what you can do to ensure long-lasting surgery results.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

Cosmetic surgery can provide physical and emotional benefits due to the resulting improvement in self-image and the correction of anatomic issues of the body. Other issues such as maintaining proper weight through appropriate exercise and improved diet are very important for all types of surgery, whether that is breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, or even facial surgery. Significant weight changes can drastically affect the appearance of certain parts of the body.

Practice Skin Care

When it comes to maintaining facial surgery results, skin care is vital. Good skin care is an important part of the overall appearance of the face, and a good skin care regimen can help to improve issues such as acne, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. “Also, protection from ultraviolet light, including the sun and tanning booths, is very important for overall skin care because ultraviolet light is very detrimental to skin and can greatly accelerate the appearance of aging,” Dr. Wiener said. Dr. Wiener carries a full line of skin care products to help with minimizing and correcting signs of facial aging.

Avoid Nicotine

When nicotine and the sun’s rays mix, it can greatly accelerate the appearance of aging in the skin. The nicotine causes premature skin aging along with the other many problems that are caused by nicotine. “To maintain the results of your surgery, a consistent exercise program involving both aerobic exercise and weight training, proper eating habits to maintain a healthy weight, and a constant non-fluctuating weight will help to maintain the results of your surgery.” If you are interested in improving your appearance with plastic surgery, contact us today to schedule a consultation at our Houston practice.
