Healing Following Your Plastic Surgery Transformation

Posted by Dr. Perry in Plastic Surgery

We know that the process following a cosmetic surgery involves a complex set of events. Besides the surgery itself and the recovery form the anesthesia your body will need to heal itself. Your body responds to the excitement of the cosmetic surgery by increasing your rate of metabolism in order to repair itself. At Chrysalis Cosmetics, Dr Charles Perry and his staff want to help you have a successful transformation and look you best. (For photos go to www.chrysaliscosmetics.com) Your cells begin to oxidize more readily, creating free radicals. These oxidized cells may create a detrimental effect on your healing through a byproduct call a free radical that can damage tissue at the cellular level. We believe that the essential antioxidants can minimize this free radical damage to your cells. Our formulation includes vitamin A (15,000 IUs of beta carotene), vitamin C (750 mg.), selenium and bioflavonoids — powerful antioxidants that lessen cellular damage and mitigate the free radical damage during the peri- and post-operative period. It also includes zinc, a mineral that helps facilitate chemical reactions within the immune system.

Rebuilding and regenerating tissue following a cosmetic surgery occurs in an orderly progression that is dependent upon the availability of essential nutrients. There is a whole science of essential targeted nutrients based on data gathered from controlled studies in the field of nutrient science. Vitamedica has created a product that contains a unique combination of vitamins and nutrients configured to meet your needs following plastic surgery.

The essential nutrients include a potent anti-inflammatory combination in bromelain and quercetin. Bromelain is an enzyme extracted from the stem of the pineapple. Together bromelain and quercetin work synergistically to reduce bruising and swelling associated with your surgical procedures. Bromelain inhibits prostaglandins that cause inflammation and promotes formation of anti-inflammatory mediators including histamine. Combined, these nutrients enhance the effects of each other and demonstrate significant anti-inflammatory activity.

In addition, Arnica Montana is supplied to help reduce bruising. Arnica Montana is a homeopathic remedy designed to reduce the discomfort, bruising and swelling associated with your cosmetic surgery. These homeopathic nutritional supplements assist in stimulating your body’s immune system and aid its natural healing processes.

An Arnica Montana 30X carried by Chrysalis Cosmetics is a formulation is also used to minimize your bruising associated with some injectable procedures such as Botox®, Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm.
