Las Vegas – At the fall edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), attendees learned the value of optimal nutrition before, during and after aesthetic procedures.
Surgical nutrition represents a missed opportunity, said Englewood, Colorado-based plastic surgeon Gregory A. Buford, M.D. When he was growing up in the Pacific Northwest, he said, farm to table simply meant “We knew the people who grew our food. Fast food wasn’t really big. But unfortunately, that is changing America.” High-tech aesthetic devices are great, he said, “But we’re forgetting something very basic that can make a huge difference.”
Optimal healing requires micronutrients and macronutrients, he said. “You have vitamin D receptors throughout your whole body. Vitamin D helps with weight loss, energy and many different things besides avoiding rickets. Vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B, magnesium – all these things are important before and after surgery.” When patients have proper nutrition, “Your filler, laser and skincare results will look better. And when patients look better, you look better.”
