Good Nutrition For Surgery Patients

Dr. Hasen understands that many patients take nutritional supplements in increasing amounts. While generally safe, their use around the time of surgery is not always desirable.

For this very reason, Dr. Hasen prescribes for his surgery patients VitaMedica's Surgery Supplements which provide nutrients that support internal wound care by enhancing the body's natural mechanisms for repair and healing. These have been specially formulated and do not contain nutrients that may have an adverse effect on the surgical outcome and improves surgical safety.

Surgery Program:

For his patients undergoing extensive surgeries such as face lift (rhytidectomy), breast reduction or reconstruction, liposuction, and abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, Dr. Hasen prescribes the VitaMedica Surgery Program which is a comprehensive pre- and post- operative nutritional supplement system.

The Surgery Program provides nutrients to speed wound healing, support the immune system, prevent infection, minimize inflammation and reduce bruising. The Surgery Program allows you to take an active role in your health and healing. The result is improved surgical safety and an optimal surgical outcome.

The Surgery Program includes the following nutraceuticals:

  • Clinical Support for Surgery - a specialty multi-nutrient formula to enhance wound healing & speed recovery.
  • Bromelain with Quercetin - natural ingredients with excellent anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Arnica Montana 30X - a homeopathic formula to reduce bruising and swelling.

Healing Supplements Program:

Dr. Hasen prescribes the Healing Supplements Program - a healing system designed for less extensive procedures such as nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), chin augmentation (mentoplasty), breast augmentation, and some non-surgical procedures such as chemical peels and fat injections.

When you've had surgery, your body can respond with inflammation, bruising and swelling. Inflammation is a defense reaction caused by tissue damage, and is characterized by redness, heat, swelling and pain. Bruising occurs when the tissues underlying the skin are injured. While the skin is not broken, the blood collects under the skin, resulting in pain, swelling and "black and blue" marks.

VitaMedica's Healing Supplements Program is designed to support the body's healing process. And, because the products are natural, they are milder, safer and are far less likely to cause negative reactions than prescription medicines. These supplements provide nutrients to speed patient recovery by reducing bruising, swelling and inflammation.

The Healing Supplements Program includes the following nutraceuticals:

  • Bromelain with Quercetin - natural ingredients with excellent anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Arnica Montana 30X - a homeopathic formula to reduce bruising and swelling.

Age Management Supplements:

In addition to offering his surgery patients surgical vitamins to help the healing process, Dr. Hasen offers VitaMedica's line of Age Management Supplements. Currently, many purported "anti-aging" products and services are available to prevent the inevitable effects of aging. Because virtually none of these products has been demonstrated to reverse aging, we prefer the term age management.

The goal of an anti-aging program is to extend a person's lifespan for as many years possible. In contrast, the goal of an age management program is to extend a person's healthspan - the number of healthy years that one can expect to live.

Dr. Hasen carries a number of age management nutraceuticals from VitaMedica that are designed to maintain health, wellness and beauty. In addition, we offer targeted supplements for specific skin issues such as acne, and aging of the skin as a result of free radical damage. Since many of our employees take these Age Management Supplements daily, you should feel free to ask our staff any questions you may have about these vitamins.

The Essentials Program:

The Essentials Program is designed for individuals who want to look their best, but may not eat the variety and quality of foods to obtain optimal levels of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and other nutrients.

The Essentials Program provides internal skin care by enhancing the body's natural systems for building, repairing and protecting the skin. The result is beauty that comes from the inside out. These supplements boost the effectiveness of the topical products recommended by our skin care professionals. The result is a comprehensive, bi-directional approach to naturally support healthy-looking skin.

The Essentials Program is also ideal for patients who have just completed the Surgery Program or the Healing Supplements Program and want to maintain their new look.

The Essentials Program includes the following nutraceuticals:

  • Multi-Vitamin & Mineral - A high-potency, multi-vitamin & mineral in a morning and evening formulation.
  • Flax Seed Oil Capsules - Provides an excellent source of the essential Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

Broad Spectrum Antioxidant:

The Broad Spectrum Antioxidant includes a broad range of antioxidants to provide protection against free-radical damage. Free-radicals are believed to play a role in certain diseases and in the aging process itself.

The supplement also includes nutrients that support the development of collagen and elastin - proteins that are the key building blocks of the skin. It is designed to boost the effectiveness of the topical antioxidants currently recommended by your skin care professional. The result is a comprehensive, bi-directional approach to provide photo protection and to naturally support younger-looking skin.

Key Features

  • Includes vitamins A, C and E - key nutrients for the skin
  • Natural vitamin E and BetateneĀ®, a natural carotenoid blend
  • Contains lutein, milk thistle, alpha lipoic acid, grape seed & green tea
  • Easy-to-swallow capsules

Healthy Skin Formula:

Healthy Skin Formula is designed for individuals with inflammatory skin problems. The supplement is safe for patients 12 years or older. VitaMedica's Healthy Skin Formula is a nutritional supplement that provides internal skin care by enhancing the body's natural systems for repairing, cleansing and healing.

Many topical treatments for the care of acne and inflammatory disorders of the skin are available. While effective, these regimens contain products that generate activity primarily on the outer layer of the skin. Although the topical approach represents the foundation of good skin care, it also makes sense to address what is going on internally. That's because what you put inside your body is just as important as what you apply externally.

VitaMedica's Healthy Skin Formula is designed to boost the effectiveness of the topical products currently recommended by your skin care professional. The result is a comprehensive, bi-directional approach to naturally support proper skin functioning and a healthy-looking complexion.

  • Addresses the various stages of acne development
  • Includes vitamin A, Zinc, Selenium and Chromium - nutrients that promote skin health.
