It is a fact, people are complex and our mood varies according to the day, depending on many factors such as environment, circumstances, weather, physical, emotional and diet. Due to the current situation, it seems that there are not many factors that could influence (the days in confinement seem the same) but with greater reason it is necessary to be alert to a perpetual negative state of mind.

It is predicted that by 2020, depression will be the illness that most people suffer from.
We understand that there are factors that we cannot control, such as climatic or genetic conditions, but there are other factors that are the same or more influential in our state of mind that we can control, such as diet. There are components in food that help a lot to improve mood, such is the case of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is synthesized through tryptophan, without it, there is no production of it. Serotonin deficiency can lead to an increased risk of depression, sadness, distress, irritability, or anxiety. Its presence in the system acts as a natural antidepressant, its presence in the body is linked to a greater feeling of happiness. And equally do not forget that tryptophan is essential for a proper functioning, then, what foods will help us in the search for the ‘’happiness hormone’’?

Dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt contain generous amounts of vitamin D and tryptophan, which not only promote sleep, but also help increase serotonin levels.
Eggs in addition to being a very complete and healthy food, improve mood, while treasuring a good amount of tryptophan, in addition to high-quality proteins, vitamins and minerals. Fish also provide omega 3, the polyunsaturated fatty acids necessary for the synthesis of tryptophan. Salmon, tuna, sardines, grouper and cod are some of the species with the highest proportion of this compound.

Almonds, walnuts and cashews are the richest nuts in magnesium, a mineral that intervenes in the production of tryptophan, on the other hand pineapple and banana promote the production of serotonin generating a feeling of optimism and vitality also contain great servings of vitamin B6, another precursor to serotonin, help relax the nervous system and promote a more relaxed mood.

Chocolate causes the body to be more receptive to absorbing tryptophan by increasing the level of serotonin in the brain, and legumes have been shown to be rich in zinc and magnesium, two minerals involved in the synthesis of tryptophan and, therefore, in the serotonin production.
Remember that a good diet is essential to better handle these difficult times. Check our blog every week for more health tips.

• Rhytidectomy (face lift)

It involves separating the skin from the fat and the underlying muscle, then tightening the muscle and the underlying membrane, pulling on the skin and removing excess, securing the layers of tissue and closing the incisions.

• Lifting with threads

Thread lifting is capable of naturally forming support tissue by producing collagen and fibroblasts around the inserted thread that tighten and redensify the skin.

• Fillers in dark circles, cheekbones, lips and hands.

The most widely used method is filling with hyaluronic acid, a molecule that acts like a sponge in the body by attracting water molecules.

Even though this procedure has been an alternative to solve this problem and recover firmness, at the moment of making the final decision and setting the date to perform the procedure many women postpone the intervention because of the time involved in recovering to return to their daily activities, they may consider that it’s too long and that their mobility will be limited.

For a more accurate notion, we will give you a guide on milestones during recovery from a breast lift, remember that times may vary between each patient.

3rd day: On the third day after surgery there is moderate pain that can be controlled through medication. There will be swelling and bruising. Wearing a special bra will help minimize discomfort and protect your wounds. The day after the procedure you can take a shower.

1st week: Activities that do not require much effort are allowed, such as returning to work, among other things. Avoid heavy lifting, bowing and any other movement that involves great effort.

2nd week: After this time you can resume many daily activities without discomfort. Any strenuous exercise should continue to be avoided. Wounds in general are already mostly healed.

4th week: At this point, most patients feel well and are already beginning to perform gentle exercises, but any exercise that concentrates on the chest should be avoided..

6th week: You can exercise without restrictions, sleep on your back and, if authorized by the doctor, wear a bra with rods of your choice.

  • Go promptly to all your subsequent consultations.
  • Use the post-surgical garments indicated by your surgeon.
  • Eat light, nutritious foods and drink plenty of water.
  • Consider at least 1 week off from your work activities.
  • Wear wide clothing, especially blouses that do not require too much movement to put on.

  • Limit any physical movement such as running or jumping until you are completely healed.

At the beginning of this year we return to take the goals that could be left unfinished in the past year, and a constant is to recover or have the figure that we consider an ideal.

Of course, there are many ways to get it, and although some seem easier than others, they all require great effort. An example of this is to resort cosmetic surgery to correct certain areas and at least as it seems, surgical interventions require investment as long as it is in the hands of professionals.

A practice that has become very popular over the years and that helps people who have a procedure in mind, but do not have the economic possibilities immediately, is the savings system, which provides the necessary amount to carry out the procedure and which can be covered later with payments at certain times, either weekly or biweekly and with a term to be settled between the next 10 or 12 months.

While the payment options seem accessible to the majority pocket, the risks are latent for the following reasons:

  • It is an informal saving, there is no means by which to demand compliance with the agreement.
  • The savings system only returns the money saved, does not generate performance and in some cases an extra payment must be made to the person organizing it.
  • Not all people comply with payments on time, this leads to a delay in the time it is appropriate to pay you to perform the procedure.
  • In some cases, at the beginning of the savings, an advance payment must be made as a “down payment”, which is generally more than half of the final cost.

If you are considering joining any of these savings groups, we recommend that you have to take in mind the aforementioned points so that you achieve your goals with satisfaction. Always consider options and possibilities when considering plastic surgery.

In Baja Plastic Surgery & MedSpa we offer payment facilities without charging interest or having intermediaries.

With this “ boom ” on the pursuit for a flat stomach, a large number of clinics and spas have included in their procedure a treatment called Mesotherapy which promises to help reducing sizes and defining the body contour, while not requiring of surgeries and mentions being a minimally invasive procedure.

The main contribution of mesotherapy is that it helps improve the lymphatic drainage of the fat itself, which helps the loss of a few centimeters.

It must be considered that if your goal is to have a notorious reduction in sizes, mesotherapy will not give these results.

If the objective is to reduce localized fat significantly (between 2 and 3 sizes) the most effective option is laser liposuction, which basically consists of extracting the fat through a cannula accompanied by a laser, which, increase the removal of it by melting adipose tissue.

Whether you opt for a less invasive procedure such as mesotherapy or laser liposuction, always remember to go with professionals in the area, as well as ask for answers to any questions you may have.

Polypropylene is used in various aesthetic and non-aesthetic operations. It is a painless material and is rarely rejected by the body.
