Bromelelain for swelling; arnica for bruising - start taking two weeks PRIOR to surgery for optimal effect and continue taking two weeks after surgery. I didn't realize that and was only taking the AM/PM vitamins 2 weeks prior. I'm almost one month post surgery and have had such minimal swelling after a body lift, my dr. was amazed! My scarring is healing beyond our expectations and it's nearly all a finely healed line with very little scab still remaining. (Also painted scar with ScarGuard since 1wk post). I have had other prior surgeries (BA, lipo) and wasn't advised these supplements - My healing process involved much greater bruising and swelling and the whole process was much more uncomfortable. I think the drainage aspect was facilitated as well because I was able to have my drains removed by end of week 2. I was able to find Bromelain and Arnica at the Vitamin Shoppe and Amazon for under $15 -- check for comparable doseage when comparing prices - I recommend taking those two specifically after you run out (4wk supply given here). It helps with the "swell hell" everyone talks about (I haven't experienced that at all!)

MakeMeHeal Surgery Healing Supplements & Vitamins Kit (Pre & Post-Op Formulas)

This Pre & Post Op Multinutrient Kit (no Vitamin E) has been designed specifically to help patients accelerate healing and obtain better cosmetic results following plastic surgery (as well as general surgeries) by providing all the vital healing supplements, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been shown to be vital for preparing the body for surgery and for helping one have a faster recovery. Taken in tablet/pill form starting anywhere from 1-2 weeks pre-op or several days before the surgery up until 30 days post-op, the Multinutrient Kit helps build and maximize your body’s tissue reserves of nutrients that are important for the healing process, helps speed up recovery by strengthening the body’s natural healing process, helping reduce swelling and bruising, supporting wound healing, promoting repair and growth of tissues damaged by surgery, and by protecting the body from infection by enhancing the immune system defenses. Appropriate for both women and men of all ages.
