With the advent of new technologies, techniques and even financing options for plastic surgery in response to increased demand, it may seem that exercising and eating right are outdated notions. Realistically, plastic surgery and exercising should be viewed as complementary therapies for men and women who want to look and feel their best.
A Healthy Lifestyle is Paramount
Plastic surgery certainly can help you look better, but it does not replace a lifestyle that keeps your body operating at peak performance. Cardiovascular health, digestion, strength and endurance are just some of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and proper nutrition.
How Plastic Surgery Complements a Healthy Lifestyle
Despite the many benefits of exercising and eating right, these approaches cannot solve every aesthetic concern. Exercise does not change the shape of your bone structure, and it cannot eliminate sagging skin. Exercising also cannot help when you lose fat in your face that makes you look older, and exercising does not help with wrinkles. Plastic surgery helps with all these problems, and you have both surgical and non-surgical options, such as:
- Dermal fillers and injectables
- Light and laser treatments
- Nose surgery
- Arm lift
- Breast augmentation
- Gynecomastia (breast reduction) surgery for men
The Role of Diet and Exercise in Plastic Surgery
Many of our body contouring procedures are best suited for men and women who are near their ideal weight for at least one year before having the procedures, including a Mommy Makeover. Weight changes may reduce your need for plastic surgery or put you at risk for needing revision surgery in the future. We also evaluate your lifestyle prior to recommending any procedure because you will need to maintain the same dedication and commitment after surgery. In many cases, exercise and diet may extend the results of your procedures. Exercising also helps your body heal better after surgery, so you should be in good shape before the procedure so that your body is used to the extra energy expenditure.
