Detoxification, more commonly known as detox or body cleansing, refers to a number of practices that some people believe will help cleanse the body of harmful toxins.

Detoxing can involve obeying a strict diet, fasting or avoiding or favouring certain food groups. It also commonly incorporates other alternative medicine practices, such as colon cleansing.

Detox diets have faced heavy criticism from the scientific and medical fields, due to the lack of evidence presented to support the claimed medical benefits. Those following strict detox diets also risk disrupting the natural detoxification systems of the body, which could have consequences for their health.

Detox diets and cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery patients who are following detox diets will need to discuss this with their surgeon during their consultation, as they may need to alter their diet prior to undergoing treatments to ensure their body is sufficiently fit and healthy.
