Nutrition and hydration are key pieces in the recovery puzzle after surgery. They are essential to strengthening the body so it can recover faster and better.

Besides taking prescription medication and resting to let the body focus on healing, medical practitioners recommend to be particularly mindful of food and water intake following a procedure.

Key nutrients play an essential role in replacing blood loss, help incisions heal, repair skin, nerves, blood vessels, muscle and bone, strengthen the immune system and increase energy. Hydration must also be replenished for all bodily functions to work properly.

On the other hand, nutritional deficiencies and dehydration can really negatively impact the quality and length of the recovery. This is why supplementation is such a game changer during the critical post-op time.

Dr. Hakimi’s Advice

Dr. Michael Hakimi is a board-certified plastic surgeon, operating out of Beverly Hills, using the most advanced techniques in the industry.

As a surgeon, Mike wants the best results for his patients. This means he wants them to take care of themselves after they leave the OR, so they can recover faster.

However, every day he sees dehydration and poor nutrition as common issues that make the post-op recovery much harder on the patient.

Intravenous treatments provide crucial vitamins, amino acids and electrolytes needed for effective and timely recovery.

Mike recommends our Immune IV Drip for post-op recovery because it provides the necessary nutrients for improved immune function, which enhances the body’s ability to protect itself -including fighting infections, healing efficiently, repairing cells and recovering faster.
