Pre & Post Operation IV Infusions London
Pre & Post infusions are crucial for those planning to undergo a planned procedure or cosmetic surgery.
Our consultants will support your journey by creating your bespoke plan coordinated with your surgery date. Our goal is to prepare your body and strengthen you towards a timely recovery with the support of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Surgery is a trauma to the body and can cause both physical and emotional stress.
The skin is one of the most important barriers that protects us from foreign bacteria entering our bodies. During surgery this protective barrier is broken and its function compromised.
The body needs to repair the traumatized area and requires a huge amount of “building blocks” such as amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. When these are present in sufficient quantity, the healing process can occur quicker. Healing occurs in three distinct overlapping phases, with the bulk of healing occurring within
the first few weeks following surgery.
The Inﬂammatory Phase
Phase 1 (up to 5 days)
The body’s ﬁrst response to injury involves forming a localised blood clot to stop bleeding.
Infection ﬁghting cells (neutrophils) and debris cleaning cells (macrophages) are recruited to the traumatised area.
Phase 2 (1 week – 3 weeks)
The body starts building tissue with specialised collagen-forming cells called ﬁbroblasts.
This new tissue is called granulation tissue and special growth factors to stimulate skin formation (epithelialisation).
Phase 3 (4 weeks – 1 year)
The body transforms and replaces the collagen that was placed during the proliferative phase into a stronger collagen to support structure and function over the long term.
It is essential to be as healthy as possible and nutritionally maximise health prior to surgery, this will support optimal healing.
While many vitamins, minerals and amino acids are used during the healing process, there are speciﬁc ones that are known to benefit not only the healing process but also improve the immune response.
Vitamin C: Necessary to rebuild collagen throughout the body. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that supports the immune response.
Vitamin C works as a protection barrier within your body, providing the ultimate natural support.
Magnesium: A mineral involved in approximately 300 biochemical reactions such as maintaining normal nerve and muscle function, supporting a healthy immune system, regulating the heartbeat, and helping bones remain strong. It also helps adjust blood glucose levels. It aids in the production of energy and protein.
Lysine: Has a major roles in protein synthesis, hormone, and enzyme production and the absorption of calcium. It’s also important for energy production, immune function and the production of collagen and elastin.
Methionine: Plays an important role in metabolism and detoxification. It’s also necessary for tissue growth and the absorption of zinc and selenium, minerals that are vital to your health.
Glycine: Is an essential component of important biological molecules, a key substance in many metabolic reactions, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the spinal cord and brain stem, and an anti-inflammatory, cytoprotective, and immune modulating substance.
Some of many benefits
Zinc: An essential trace mineral used in enzymatic reactions involved in tissue and wound healing, regenerate, and repair. Zinc supports the process of healing surgical incisions.
B-Vitamins: Cellular metabolism, tissue repair and immune support.
Vitamin D & Calcium: Important for bone health.
