One of the most important things you can do before any surgery or procedure is to have your blood tested. This will give your practitioner a good barometer of your general state of health. We recommend getting the following tests performed at least one month before your procedure. All of these tests can be performed with a single visit to any lab.
-CBC: The Complete Blood Count
-Chem 7: The blood Chemistry Panel
-Liver Function Panel
-PT/PTT/INR (Coagulation Study)
-Arterial Blood Gas (ABG)
Along with these lab results, your practitioner will ask you to refrain from: Smoking/Recreational Drug Use/ Drinking/Taking Certain Vitamins and Supplements.
Now that you have a better idea of your general health, it is time to plan how to get your body into the best condition possible for optimal results and a speedy recovery. After standard blood screening, most patients discover a myriad of vitamin and mineral deficiencies that plague their health and well-being. Come of these deficiencies can severely impact your body’s ability to heal and regenerate.
the most common nutrient deficiencies include vitamins D, K2, B12, E, and A, Omega-3, Magnesium, Iodine, Calcium, iron, and ability to recover. A great way to heal quickly and efficiently before any procedure is through IV Nutrient Therapies. IV Nutritional Therapy is prefect for individuals looking to improve their overall health, speed recovery time, improve their overall health, speed recovery time, improve athletic performance, reduce the effects of aging, manage stress, and enhance physical appearance.
We suggest IV Nutritional Therapies before and after any procedure for any deficiencies you may have, as well as IV supplementation of Vitamin C infusions. The body uses a lot of Vitamin C to make connective tissue and high levels of the vitamin speed the healing of surgical wounds. We recommend 2 Vitamin C IV treatments starting two weeks before surgery and continuing a week post-surgery
After any cosmetic procedure there is swelling. Even with the minimally invasive and quick recovery time of the Brazilian sculpt technique you will experience some swelling and minimal tenderness in the area treated. Programming your body to keep inflammation to a minimum is a key factor in your speedy recovery. Compression therapy can speed recovery tenfold.
Whole body cryotherapy can help relive the swelling and inflammation that often cause pain and restrict movement. With a higher pain threshold and increased production of collagen, you’ll be able to move more freely and return to your everyday activities more quickly.
Compression garments are important after any liposuction procedure. Wearing these garments ensures proper recovery. Doctors have found that patients who comply with recommendations to wear compression garments following Liposuction have better results and are happier with the outcome than patients who do not wear them.
Liposuction removes subcutaneous fat, which is located between the skin and muscle. When it is removed, the layer of skin does not immediately adhere to the muscle underneath; rather, fluid accumulates in the space previously filled with fat. Cryogenic therapy and compression therapy both help minimize the swelling and disperse fluid rather than letting is build up. it is recommended and well worth using both therapies.
