What can I do to prepare for my upcoming facelift? Are there any special regimens, supplements, or products that might help me achieve better results (or help me recover)?
The most important preparation for the coming facelift is avoidance of blood thinners and control of health-related concerns such as high blood pressure. Some surgeons believe in Arnica Montana or Bromaline however studies have not shown a significant benefit from these medications. We are not opposed to patient’s taking these medications but we do not universally promote their benefit either. Generally patients are in good health and good nutritional status and so therefore no particular supplements are required.
