The Critical Role of Nutrition in Facial Plastic Surgery.Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2019; 27(3):399-404FP
Nutrition plays a key role in optimizing healing following surgery. The increased catabolic state postoperatively, coupled with a propensity for patients to be suffering from marginal nutritional deficiencies at baseline preoperatively, necessitates that the surgeon be attuned to the need for optimal perioperative nutritional support. This ensures the smoothest recovery and best possible outcomes in facial plastic surgery. Key nutrients include vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, bromelain, arnica montana, arginine, glutamine, hydrolyzed collagen, vitamin B complex, and protein. The ability for patients to obtain this optimal supplementation in a single product is the ideal solution for both surgeon and patient.
