New Year’s Resolutions beneficial to Cosmetic Surgery

It’’s the New Year – …have you decided 2011 would be a good time for a “New You” with some cosmetic treatment?

Why not also make your New Year’s Resolutions work for you? Did you know that although surgery can make dramatic improvements to you, physically and emotionally, it is not a “miracle cure” alone: there are often other contributing factors in your lifestyle that will effect the outcomes of your surgery, the results achieved and how long they may last.

The great news is that some of the things you can do to help this are typical New Year’s Resolutions, anyway: quitting smoking, for example. Getting your Body Mass Index down to an optimal, stable level (ideally below 30).  Or even just improving your skincare regime.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) procedures particularly benefit from weight being at a sustainable level prior to surgery.  So, too, do Breast Augmentation and Uplift (Mastopexy) procedures where your surgeon’’s good work can be undone if you dramatically change weight after surgery.

Both smoking and being overweight puts patients at higher risk for wound healing problems. Hence, it really is in your best interest to begin the New Year on a healthy note if considering 2011 surgery.

And for those considering facial rejuvenation treatments to freshen up for the year ahead: whilst facelifts, Botox and dermal filler treatments can do wonders for your facial appearance, prolonged youthful beauty in the face comes from the glow of great skin condition.

The best skin regime for stimulating collagen (the factor which makes us look younger and healthier), repairing and regenerating involves layering a serum and a moisturiser, packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Niacinamide.

At Aurora, we stock the Endocare and Flavo-C ranges which are perfect for this… and our friendly aesthetic practitioners will be more than happy to advise you on a skincare regime for you!

So, Happy New Year from all here at Aurora Clinics: let’’s make it a beautiful one, …but, above all, a healthy one!
