Congratulations! We’re sure you’re feeling pretty excited (and maybe more than a little nervous) right now, but rest assured: you’re on your way to your new self! But first, it’s important that you prepare your body for plastic surgery to ensure a smooth procedure and fast recovery. Whether you’re getting a Brazillian Butt Lift, a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, or another procedure, Dr. Barrett has curated a whole host of pre-surgery care, tips and best practices to prepare for plastic surgery.
In the weeks leading up to your surgery, it’s very important to be as healthy as you possibly can for at least two weeks prior to your surgery. This means:
- No fad diets;
- No excessive exercise;
- No alcohol for at least two weeks pre-surgery;
- No illicit drug use for at least two weeks pre-surgery (if you’re in a legal state, cannabis is ok, so long as it isn’t smoked);
- No smoking for a least six weeks pre-surgery;
- For women over 50 on hormone replacement therapy, discontinue use two weeks prior to surgery
If you’re feeling anxious, CBD is exceptionally helpful to treat anxiety and help you relax. Barrett Recovery CBD, a full spectrum organic CBD that’s formulated with 1500mg of pure, therapeutic cannabidiol per bottle, is really a game-changer for pain management, anxiety and sleep. CBD can also help with post-op swelling by affecting the signals in the body’s endocannabinoid receptors, which are found in the body’s central and peripheral nervous systems.
Another good way to combat pre-surgery anxiety is to ensure you’re fully prepared with everything you’ll need for your recovery. Dr. Barrett has discovered hundreds of products aimed at ensuring his patients have the best plastic surgery healing process possible. Complete with everything you need for a speedy recovery, the Essential Surgery Recovery Optimization Kit is a whole-body approach that reflects a holistic healing path to health and wellness.
One of Dr. Barrett’s most-recommended pre-op supplements is Healfast Pre-Op. Specifically formulated to prepare your body for surgery, it provides the optimal level of nutrient support for enhanced recovery after surgery. Its blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, probiotics and anti-inflammatories are designed to aid the healing process by reducing swelling, bruising and inflammation, and aiding in pain control, while also maximizing your nutritional status and preventing the depletion of key nutrients that occurs when undergoing your BBL, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or any other surgical procedure
