What do we do to repair the body after surgery?

So, we’ve made it through the hard part! The search for the doctor who bests suits us is over, the consults are done, decisions have been made, the big day has come and gone, and now we are recuperating. We may be experiencing some discomfort, we know the medication is helping, but it may also be making us nauseous. So what are our options? What do we eat? What do we drink?

Most of us, whether we have had surgery or not, probably have not been eating properly in the first place, so what do we do? First things first, in the days following the surgery we are probably not in the mood to eat, so we should be drinking lots of water. Coconut water is excellent along with low salt light soups.

There could be some vomiting, a loss of appetite, or a very little desire to eat. In these cases try yogurt, greek yogurt, protein shakes and protein drinks instead of meals. Eat simple meals such as chicken with vegetable broth after surgery. Our bodies need their fair share of protein to repair cells, fight infection, and heal incisions.

As the days go by we will need to eat lots of restorative foods. Our bodies need to rest and repair itself, so getting lots of rest and sleep is key. If you feel the need to snack, walnuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds are a good way to go. Breakfast can be eggs, fortified orange juice or fortified cereal. Include lots of fruits like cantaloupe, papaya, oranges, mangoes, strawberry and kiwi. Our veggies should definitely include lots of spinach, broccoli, bell peppers and beans. If eating fruits and veggies seems like a bit too much. Making fruit/veggie smoothies using a blender like Nutribullet or Vitamix can be a great way to take in large quantities of fruits and veggies without eating them all day!

Of course remember portion amounts counts! It is great to retrain the body to take in smaller amounts and now is a great opportunity and time to start!

The Great Debate: Butt Implants vs. The Brazilian Butt Lift

The great debate: Butt Implants vs The Brazilian Butt Lift. We get tons of inquiries from prospective patients asking which one is the best. So we here at Morrison Plastic Surgery decided to shed some light on the subject for all the prospective women looking to enhance their beautiful derriere’s.

So whats the answer? The quick and dirty answer is, the Brazilian Butt lift wins hands down!

Why, you ask? No problem, here’s the skinny (no pun intended) :-)

Why Implants are Bad

  1. Implants are a foreign substance: Because implants are a foreign substance there’s a greater chance they will be rejected by the body which can create serious complications and cause for the removal of the implants. With the Brazilian Butt lift, we use our own fat to do the enhancing and since the fat comes from our own bodies, there’s a 0% chance of the body rejecting it.
  2. Implants don’t pass the feel test: It’s well known that implants just don’t feel as natural as the real deal, and by real deal we mean our own fat. A good percentage of our booty’s are made up of, well, pure fat. So using fat seems to make the most sense.
  3. Implants can become very  uncomfortable: Think about it this way, you are putting two foreign, solid objects inside of your buttocks. It’s only natural that as you are sitting or lying down, you’ll notice it and may even feel it moving around. With the Brazilian Butt Lift, the fat that is used, naturally takes on the characteristics of where it is being injected so it will better assimilate to its new environment and behave as it should.

Other Facts Specific to the Brazilian Butt Lift

  1. As discussed in a prior blog the fat used to enhance the shape is taken from our own bodies, usually belly, flanks, arms, thighs, etc… So with this you get added body shaping and contouring that will add to the look of your new butt.
  2. Minimal Scarring
  3. Shorter Recovery period
  4. Less chance of infection and side effects
  5. Better look and feel

At Morrison Plastic Surgery, Dr. Norman Morrison does not use butt implants due to the amount of possible complications, side effects, and all the reasons discussed above. Feel free to contact your friends here at Morrison Plastic Surgery for more info!
