AddThis Social Bookmark Button

After you’ve undergone a successful operation, all you want is a healthy recovery period and a quick return to your daily life. However, the days following your surgery are just as important as the procedure itself.


You shouldn’t try to rush through the process just to get back on your feet sooner. However, when it comes to how to improve your recovery after surgery, there are a few things you can do to make sure the process goes as smoothly and comfortably as possible.

A Different Kind of Force – Policing Mental Illness

Listen to Your Doctor

The most important piece of advice for how to improve your recovery after surgery is one you’ve heard over and over again: always follow your doctor’s orders. As obvious as it is, this is crucial to a successful recovery process.

Pay attention to your doctor’s instructions regarding medications, incision care, activity levels, and more. Don’t neglect your follow-up appointments in the weeks following your procedure.

This kind of open communication is important to your wellbeing. The more you listen to your doctor, the easier it’ll be to address any potential complications both before the surgery and during your recovery. You should always feel comfortable asking your doctor about any questions or concerns you might have.

Take Care of Your Body

Your body needs a lot of time and energy to heal after surgery. The best thing you can do is to take care of yourself and allow your body to do what it needs to. This includes behaviors like eating well, staying hydrated, and caring for the surgical site.

Staying Healthy During Summer - and Year-Round

Eating and drinking well are always a crucial part of a healthy lifestyle, but they’re particularly important after a surgery. Many patients lose their appetite after a surgery, but your body still needs the energy and nutrition from a healthy diet in order to heal. Make sure your diet includes plenty of protein, vitamins, and minerals—and don’t forget to stay hydrated.

It’s also important to care for your surgical site. Make sure you follow your doctor’s orders regarding how to wash, dry, and re-dress any incisions.

Keep the area clean and dry and be sure to watch the area for any sign of infections or other complications. Your doctor might prescribe a compression garment to help stabilize and support the surgical site.

If this is the case, make sure you work with your doctor to find the perfect style and fit. For example, if you’ve had breast augmentation surgery, finding the right post-surgery bra is crucial to taking care of the surgical site and recovering safely and comfortably.
