Summer can be a fantastic time to have plastic surgery. Many people usually have vacation time during this season. You can use this time to improve your appearance without needing to take time off work. Here are five tips to help you recover from plastic surgery faster this summer.
Stay in Cooler Temperatures
After certain plastic surgery procedures, you may need to wear compression garments or extra layers of bandaging. This can create increased sweating and itching that can harm your results. Staying indoors where temperatures are cooler can help you feel more comfortable.
Drink Plenty of Water
Proper hydration is crucial for recovery after plastic surgery. It can help your body heal more quickly. If you do not drink plenty of water, you can become dehydrated. Dehydration can cause nausea and other uncomfortable side effects.
Get Enough Rest
Summer can be a busy time for many people. If you plan to have plastic surgery this summer, you will need to give yourself enough time to heal. Plan to rest for up to six weeks if you have extensive plastic surgery procedures.
Protect Yourself from the Sun
Plastic surgery can affect your circulation and make you prone to sunburn. Scars can become prominent by turning darker or redder. Protect yourself from sun exposure by wearing a hat and extra layers or using sunscreen. Extra caution should be taken during plastic surgery recovery while incisions are still pink.
Limit Immersion in Water
During your plastic surgery recovery, you will need to avoid pools and other bodies of water for a few weeks. Immersion in large bodies of water can increase your risk of infection. You can take showers when cleared by your plastic surgeon.
