The incidence of the breaking of the prosthesis is drastically decreased due to the scientific progress.

Is Lipofilling suitable to increase the breast size?

This technique has not yet had a long experimentation, so there are many conflicting opinions about this, certainly, it would eliminate the complications and the importance of a surgery, but since the autologous fat could be absorbed the patient must go on diet and practice sport activities to get lasting results.

I want to make my nose, But ... I'm afraid of pain.

Rhinoplasty is not painful. the intervention is carried out under general anesthesia or in neuroleptanalgesia, which consists in the intravenous administration of drugs that induce a state of mental relaxation and calm; there is still no pain during the operation. After surgery, you will feel for the next few hours a slight stinging or button easily controllable with mild analgesics. The most delicate issue is the first night: A nurse will be exclusivly at the disposal of patients and spend the whole night with them, following them in the hotel room, ready to intervene for every need, even to bring a glass of water.

I want to make my nose but  I'm afraid I do not like later.

"Recognize" in the mirror after a rhinoplasty, is undoubtedly the biggest question that faces interventions. The anxiety and doubts pertaining to the psychological side rather than that of health, is to have different difficulty breathing, for a detour, and objective sleep problems.
Post –intervention dissatsfaction will be confronted more in the second case, with a brief but psychologically difficult phase made of a swollen face, sleep in non comfortable position, with the head raised, blocked nose from scabs and daily routine, completely changed. Under these conditions it is not uncommon to feel depressed, especially around the third postoperative day, fomenting what is undoubtedly the greatest concern related to the intervention: namely, the fear that the result will not be what you want, especially if you do not just forced to ' intervention by a functional problem. The techniques are essentially unchanged over time, but today there is a greater emphasis on the harmony of the face and this explains the use of graphics, photos of previous patients, the surgeon's personal operating statistics (classical the question "How many cases like mine worked?"), reassurance on how to protect themselves in case the result is not what they want.
All anxieties and doubt can only be solved after the intervention; even the communication between the patient and the surgeon plays an important role in revealing these anxieties. the clearer the communication is, the most comprehensive 'preoperative information will be provided.

Cosmetic surgery and nutrition.

Cosmetic surgery results are expected that all too often do not  relate only to the clinical sphere but also to the broader field of quality of lifeof the patient. It does not emphasized the importance of the nutrition and the exercise. From liposuction to breast plastic surgery of the buttocks, a proper metabolism, adequately stimulated by a proper diet, helps the skin to regenerate in the best way leading to more rapid and long-lasting results.
The healing factor is crucial especially for breast cosmetic surgery  than abdomen cosmetic surgery (tummy tuck) and a rhinoplasty surgery. The common factor appears in the evidence of scars, however, those incisions are invisible, because they were practiced inside the nose, all with a proper diet to avoid surprising effects. The cosmetic surgery has better results with a pre-surgery appropriate and balanced, including the most important micronutrient for healthy skin: Vitamin A, Vitamin B7 or biotin, vitamin C, copper, iron, zinc and chromium. Furthermore, the pre-intervention must include a constant supply of proteins.

Any deficiency of vitamins, minerals or protein can cause weakness and fragility of the skin, with adverse outcomes in the postoperative period. Accordingly, any low-calorie diets based on an intake of protein and fat significantly lower than the daily requirement have to be abandoned before any cosmetic surgery.
But beware: not all proteins are created equal. Those of high quality organic contain a higher percentage in eggs, fish, milk and dairy products. The same goes for fats: those derived from animal products (butter, lard) are preferred. vegetable fats contained in olive oil, and also the oils of sunflower and soybean oil, rich in linoleic acid, a panacea for the skin. But even dried fruit is an important source of “noble”fat, as well as protein, soluble and insoluble fiber, vitamins and minerals.
As in all things, the main advice is moderation: those who take excessive amounts of carbohydrates and fats tend to produce local irritation phenomena such as itching and eczema.
Before any cosmetic surgery, the patient should be given foods that occur in association biotin and folic acid, which are the main responsible for the metabolism of the tissues, with generous portions of:

  • Citrus
  • Beets
  • Broccoli
  • Calf's liver
  • Grains

 

it is omprtant to consult a dermatologist after aesthetic surgery in order to avaoid adequate diet, which allows the skin to get more responsive operation, and then to heal the best for faster post-operative course.
