Prevent blood clots after buttock augmentation surgery
Any type of surgical procedure is associated with the risk of having blood clots. Fortunately, there are proven tips that you can do to prevent them.
Most patients that have undergone buttock augmentation tend to believe that when the surgeon tells them to rest, it means to do bedrest. However, it is no something you should be doing. When you are on a bedrest, the tendency of the blood to pool is higher. When there is no proper blood circulation, a cascade of reactions can be triggered that can cause blood clot in the leg. If this blood clot becomes severe, it can trigger pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.
When the surgeon tells you to rest, it means that you have to avoid rigorous activities but you still need to stay active. You can go for a 5-10 minute walk with three to four hour interval. You need someone to help you move around the house of do the heavy activities, but do not pamper yourself to the point that you almost become immobile.
Also, drinking a lot of fluids is highly recommended. Gatorade is among the recommended drinks as it contains nutrients and electrolytes that keep you hydrated. When your body is well-hydrated, you can easily prevent the blood from getting thick.
