There are fewer factors in recovering from bariatric surgery and maintaining a healthier lifestyle after weight loss as critical as good nutrition.
Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies
Proper nutrition and correcting nutritional deficiencies are extremely important for people considering post-weight loss plastic surgery such as abdominoplasty, body contouring, or even liposuction.
Having a proper nutritional base helps avoid complications in surgery or later in the healing process.
Remember that the lasting value of your plastic surgery procedures depends upon keeping your weight stable and your body healthy. Even older patients can slow down the effects of age with a comprehensive nutrient-based regular diet. They maintain better bone density, muscle tone, skin elasticity, and internal organ function.
All our patients are required to observe good dietary practices before their surgery. Dietary discipline is a vital component of both the bariatric surgical process and the plastic surgery performed later to remove excess skin and return the curves and aesthetic to the body. Nutrition has been shown in numerous tests to be an important correlation to a successful outcome.
