At the Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we invite you to make your surgery as healthy an experience as possible. Although you can be assured that Dr. Bassichis and his staff will take excellent care of you throughout the entire surgical process, there are many things that you can do as the patient to facilitate your best and healthiest healing. Our approach to a healthy surgery incorporates selected recommended homeopathic remedies to promote recovery including Arnica Montana.
Known for its mind and body healing properties, the herb Arnica has been harvested for centuries from the mountain pastures and lowland marshes of Europe and North America. The perennial plant with orange-yellow, daisy-like flowers has a pleasant spicy smell and is renowned for its curative and restorative powers. Arnica can significantly decrease healing time associated with plastic surgery and injection therapies. The plant’s ingredients (flavanoids, carotenoids, phenols, lactones, etc.) act on capillaries, veins, and skin to produce a range of anti-inflammatory, anti-swelling, analgesic (pain-relieving), and anti-bruising effects. Arnica Montana is also referred to Mountain Tobacco, Mountain Arnica, Common Arnica, Leopard’s Bane and Sneezewort.
Happy Healing from your staff at ADVANCED.
