Nutritional Plan

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”, which means that different factors are involved in a healthy life. The objective is to teach the population how to achieve and maintain good health and to encourage the practice of healthy lifestyle habits. It is important to emphasize that health must always be taken care of, and that is something that starts with oneself; we are the main people responsible for our health at NewFace MD, we give priority to prevention, teaching patients to lead a lifestyle that reduces the chances of getting sick.

Diet and exercise must be balanced to achieve successful weight loss. You can exercise all you want, but if you don’t eat healthily, you won’t receive the full benefits of weight loss and vice versa. We can educate you on ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise into your lifestyle and create an individualized plan to achieve your goals. Our nutritional coach Vanessa Lopes designed our nutritional plan to make your life easier without spending a lot.

Have you been told that you are too fat to have surgery?

Having a BMI equal to or higher than 30 is not ideal for plastic surgery; it is necessary to lose some additional weight before undergoing surgery; remember that the closer you are to your perfect weight, the better the final result will be.

It is essential to remember that a higher BMI also means higher surgical risks. Likewise, there is also a greater risk of patient dissatisfaction with the final result. Furthermore, there is a greater likelihood of future weight loss, which means more loose skin. In addition, the possibility of a secondary procedure is likely if a lot of weight is lost after surgery. To avoid this and get the best possible result, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight before surgery.
