But at the Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery, our experienced greater Philadelphia facial surgeon Dr. Ken Morgenstern provides state-of-the-art-care and techniques to reduce your discomfort and downtime after your procedure. For our surgical patients, we recommend an optional vitamin regimen and Arnica to minimize post-operative bruising and swelling.
To minimize bruising and swelling after your plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Morgenstern and our staff recommend following an effective vitamin regimen one week prior to your surgery and for at least one week afterward.
Vitamins that can boost your strength and help your body cope with surgery are:
Please ask us if you have any questions about adopting a vitamin regimen before and after your procedure. You should take these vitamins with food. These supplements are available for purchase at the Morgenstern Center, and you can also find them at health food stores, GNC stores and a variety of other shops.
Specifically formulated to elevate results from ablative procedures while strengthening fragile compromised skin, minimizing the risk of complications, and supporting your recovery process.
Post-treatment care is the most critical aspect of the healing process. It is imperative that you support your skin through the recovery for superior outcomes. Use as directed by your physician 14-30 days prior to a procedure, and continue immediately after your ablative procedure.
“I did a lot of research before choosing a surgeon. I like and trust Dr. Morgenstern as he is artistic, he aims for a natural look and gives attention to detail. Dr. Morgenstern is a perfectionist.”
If you would like to do all that you can to minimize bruising, Dr. Morgenstern and our staff recommend using Arnica.

We are committed to helping you look and feel your absolute best. Using advanced techniques and technologies, and recommending post-operative aftercare measures are just a couple of the ways Dr. Morgenstern brings you state-of-the-art care and great results.
You can find Arnica in a number of over-the-counter products, including creams, tablets and gels. At the Morgenstern Center, we offer two forms of Arnica available for purchase at our office:
