Post-Surgical Healing, Repair, & Recovery

If you are considering cosmetic surgery, give your body the advantage it needs to optimize healing and recovery. At our Metabolic Aesthetics Clinic, we created a post-surgical protocol that includes peptide therapy and IV infusions to help our patients from Washington, DC; Chevy Chase and Bethesda, MD; Arlington and Fairfax, VA; and surrounding areas reduce recovery time and achieve amazing results. Our clinic director, Tyler Chavez, PA-C, customizes the specifics of each protocol to the patient’s unique needs.

Our post-surgical protocol offers plastic surgery patients a variety of benefits, including: 

  • Expediting the healing and recovery process  
  • Optimizing surgical outcomes  
  • Prolonging the life of surgical results 

Many patients who have used our post-surgical protocols have been very happy with their results. 

Why Do I Need It? 

Recovery is necessary after every plastic surgery procedure, and most patients expect bruising, swelling, discomfort, and scarring during this phase. Our post-surgical protocol helps the body’s natural healing processes work faster and more efficiently. We use specific peptides to prepare the body for surgery and other peptides, such as BPC-157, to accelerate wound healing and decrease pain. 

Our Post-Surgical Protocol 

After surgery, the body must go to work and start the healing process. Our specialized protocol combines nutrients, IV infusions, and peptide therapy to optimize your body’s full healing potential throughout each stage of the healing process.  


1 week before surgery: Begin peptide therapy. 

Day of surgery: Receive a powerful IV infusion immediately after surgery. Begin your at-home peptide protocol. 

First post-opt visit: Receive a second IV infusion. 

Weeks 1 through 3: Continue your at-home peptide protocol.
