Will My Plastic Surgeon Offer A Nutrition Plan After Surgery?

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


Cosmetic treatments can tighten abdominal muscles, remove excess fat, and reduce sagging breasts and loose tissue. But when going under the knife, you want to make sure to do everything possible for maintaining your newer and slimmer self. This is why patients at Morales Plastic Surgery often turn to nutritionists, fitness experts, and life coaches after surgery.

The best way to achieve an ideal body is through perseverance and hard work. Even though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales doesn't create diet and exercise plans himself, he can suggest trusted professionals in Houston, TX who do.

What kinds of procedures do you offer?

Morales Plastic Surgery performs a variety of cosmetic treatments for men and women looking to achieve certain body goals. A mommy makeover, for example, can target multiple areas and improve your figure. This may include:

  • Breast augmentation: Enhance breasts with a boost of volume

  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck): Remove excess abdominal skin

  • Liposuction: Reduce fat pockets from areas like the abdomen, hips, and thighs

Each procedure can give you a slimmer and more sculpted silhouette that may have been lost during pregnancy or after weight loss. Dr. Morales can also discuss whether one or a combination of treatments will help.

Why do I need to maintain my results after cosmetic surgery?

Surgical procedures are an effective way to reshape your body, but you still need to maintain a generally healthy lifestyle in order to keep your outcomes. Gaining or losing too much weight can easily affect your results. For this reason, Dr. Morales recommends staying within 10 – 15 pounds of your original weight to avoid this risk.

How do I choose a diet and exercise plan?

We know it's challenging to maintain your weight and fitness levels after cosmetic surgery. In fact, some patients return for additional procedures because they weren't sure how to move forward. Getting support from a specialist is a great way to get support and stay motivated. Here are some examples of specialists who may help:

  • Nutritionist: A nutritionist can tailor a diet in a way that makes eating meals healthy and enjoyable. If you're not happy with the food choices you make, they can change how you think about what you eat.

  • Personal trainer: Working side by side with a personal trainer can be one of the most effective ways to stay on track with a weight loss program. They can also create a customized training routine that meets your ability levels.

  • Lifestyle coach: A coach can set goals for your overall wellness. If you're feeling unmotivated or discouraged, this person will be there to support your efforts.
