Undergoing any kind of surgical procedure can become very stressful. In the case of hair transplantation, even though the reward will be very high, it still means that stress can impact the patient to a large extent. We at Swiss Luxury Clinic promise the best to our clients. This means that we are prepared to offer you unique advice that will make the period after your hair transplantation easier in order to get the most out of the procedure.
First and foremost, diet plays a key role in how the body will react to a surgical procedure. Food can be used as a way to relieve stress and as a natural way to relieve certain post-surgical symptoms. For example, drinking pineapple juice is a great way to reduce swelling in the event that it occurs. Other anti-inflammatory foods include: tomatoes, olive oil, green leafy vegetables, fatty fish, and fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, and cherries.
In addition, your diet can help you in reducing stress levels. Non-Caffeinated tea is a great way to help manage stress levels. Moreover, green leafy vegetables contain folate, which produces dopamine, a pleasure-inducing brain chemical, helping you keep calm. Oatmeal is another great option since carbohydrates can help the brain make serotonin, the same substance regulated by antidepressants. Moreover, studies have shown that consuming probiotics, which can be found in yogurt reduces brain activity in areas that handle emotion. The omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon have anti-inflammatory properties that may help counteract the negative effects of stress hormones, adrenaline, and cortisol.
The antioxidants and phytonutrients found in berries fight in your defense, helping improve your body’s response to stress and fight stress-related free radicals. And of course, the healthiest sweet indulgence, dark chocolate. Research has shown that it reduces stress hormones, including cortisol.
Another way to reduce post-surgical stress is to try stress relief massage. A few full body massage sessions performed by a masseuse who specializes in stress relief can be the way to go. It may also be a good idea to talk to a specialist about your concerns since hair transplantation is a minor procedure but it is going to have a major impact in the way you look, which can be nerve-racking until the healing process is complete.
We at Swiss Luxury Clinic are going to do everything.
