It is important to be mentally and physically prepared for the healing process post surgery. There are a few tricks you can pick up while getting ready; one of them is to cut any blood thinners you use BEFORE the surgery. This doesn’t have to be any drugs you use, many vitamins/supplements have blood thinning effect as an ingredient. Here is a list below of all supplement/vitamins also drugs (especially pain killers and/or anticoagulants) that have a blood thinning effect;
• Green tea
• Vitamin E
• Grape seed extract
Yes, the healing process might be exhausting, you will be swelled and bruised during this period. However, if you take precautions, the healing will be faster.
Of course, the skin quality of the patient has a big effect as well, some just simply bruise and/or swell more than others, but taking precautions against it, like not taking any blood thinners will help a lot.
