The importance of walking after cosmetic surgery
If you’ve undergone cosmetic surgery of any kind, you can’t expect to sleep at night and achieve your desired result the next day. Before everything else, you need to endure the recovery period where there would be pain and discomforts.
Of course, there are ways and proven tips to minimize the pain and discomforts, as well as the associated risks and complications. One of the recommended steps that your surgeon would tell you is walking.
How does walking helps you speed up your recovery?
Although you are advised to have complete rest, most surgeons encourage their patients to do light exercises and movement such as walking. Taking short walks with a good interval can help you a lot in different ways.
Walking around can save you from blood clots that can really be a threat to your life. It is crucial to keep your blood in circulation through your body. When the incisions have good and enough blood and oxygen flow, your recovery will be faster and smoother.
It can also save you from constipation because it improves your metabolism. But don’t make drastic movements or strenuous activities. Do walks lightly for a few minutes with two hours interval.
