Listen Up! Exercise before Plastic Surgery, Houston!

Plastic Surgery Houston

When you are ready to make the decision for Plastic Surgery, our staff is committed to determining whether the decision is right for your goals, your body, your relationships, and your life. Often we recommend changes to diet and exercise long before a surgical procedure. So check this out …

Researchers reporting in the March issue of Cell Metabolism found that when healthy but inactive men and women exercise for a matter of minutes, it produces an almost immediate change to the DNA in their muscle structures, similar to effects of caffeine in the morning.

Although exercise is not going to change the underlying genetic code in human muscle, the DNA molecules within those muscles are chemically and structurally altered in very important ways. Those modifications at precise locations, appear to be an early indicator of genetic reprogramming of muscle for strength and, ultimately, in the structural and metabolic benefits of exercise.

What does this mean for our patients considering Plastic Surgery – Houston listen up – you must work on your body first, before we can. Dr. Clayton Moliver and his staff are passionate about people trying to get healthy in a holistic way. Learn more on our Healthy Lifestyles Resource Page.

Broadly speaking, the exercise and DNA findings offer more evidence that our genomes are much more dynamic than they are often given credit. Epigenetic modifications that turn genes on, and back off again, can be incredibly flexible events. They allow the DNA in our cells to adjust as the environment shifts.

“Exercise is medicine,” says Juleen Zierath of Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, “and it seems the means to alter our genomes for better health may be only a jog away.”

So it looks like exercise is Mother Nature’s idea of body augmentation!
We suspected as much.
Listen to her.
