Schedule a Consultation:

Maintain a balanced Weight:
Maintaining a healthy and balanced weight before your procedure could help ensure a faster recovery. Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and maintain regular physical activity.
Follow all PRE and POST-Operative Instructions
For every procedure there are pre-operative and post-operative instructions/guidelines. Carefully read through all guidelines and instructions that would be given to you. Follow these instructions to ensure a healthy recovery and to eliminate any future complications or risks. These instructions/guidelines usually cover: what to expect during your procedure and recovery, what to eat before and after your surgery, etc.
Prepare to get plenty of rest
It is also important to make necessary arrangements to take time off work, business or any rigorous physical activity. Be sure to get medical clearance from work or delegate your business tasks. If you are responsible for others, such as children or parents, arrange for someone else to care for them so you can take time to rest.
Get a Caregiver for your recovery
After your procedure, you will need to get plenty of rest. Make arrangements for a family member or friend that would render the necessary assistance to you during your recovery. The person may need to stay at home with you to monitor your progress for the first few days following your procedure and take you to your follow-up appointments if the need arises.
