Of course, we all want to look younger, but when is it time to move on from anti-wrinkle treatments and commit to a facelift? Tampa residents will find there are lots of tried-and-true ways to avoid wrinkles or minimize their appearance. Examples include wearing sunscreen and staying out of the sun, using a good moisturizer, eating right, exercising and drinking lots of water. No matter how hard we try, though, we can’t stop aging completely. Here are some signs to watch for which may mean it’s time to start thinking about a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedure.
Although it’s a good idea to prepare before your procedure by doing a little homework, you should also prepare ahead of time for your recovery from abdominoplasty. Tampa patients who spend time and energy focusing on the healing process have an easier, healthier recovery.
In our society, there’s a lot of pressure to be constantly doing things and being productive. When something comes up, like recovering from an abdominoplasty, most Tampa locals feel like they should be up and about as soon as possible. The truth is, forcing your body to be active before it’s ready is a really bad idea. Your body needs time to just rest in order to heal properly. Surgery, and especially a fairly involved surgery like a tummy tuck, is a lot for your body to handle. Muscles have been stitched together, skin has been sutured or stapled, and fat has been removed. All of these things take some getting used to, and your body needs time to adapt.
In fact, time is the best healing agent around. Instead of pushing yourself to get better faster, instead try just relaxing and giving your body what it needs: time to rest, time to heal, and a lot of time to catch up on your sleep. By getting enough down time, your body will recover much more quickly than if you force yourself to get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible. Just remember, your body’s been through a lot with this surgery. Give yourself a break, and just get better.
