With summer almost approaching, one of the most commonly requested procedures that patients ask for is liposuction. Liposuction is perfect for an improved appearance and contour of the body. Most people have a boost in self-esteem after liposuction.
One of the common misconceptions about liposuction is that you will go back to the same old habits that led you to the get liposuction in the first place and reverse the procedure. It is true that maintaining results after liposuction requires the adoption of certain lifestyle modifications.
One of the most important changes is to exercise regularly. In the early postoperative period, it is best to avoid strenuous exercise while you are recovering from your liposuction procedure. I recommend that patients walk as much as possible in the days and weeks following surgery. Not only will this help prevent blood clots and other complications, it can help you get back to normal faster. Once you have fully healed, your accredited surgeon will instruct you to return to a regular exercise regimen.
An important complement to a regular exercise routine is healthy eating. It is true that most of the visible benefits of exercise are not appreciated without a healthy diet. Be sure to incorporate more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins into your diet, and reducing the intake of sugars, simple carbohydrates and saturated fats. Eating several smaller meals throughout the day will help maintain your energy levels and avoid feeling deprived between meals. It is also important to drink a sufficient amount of water during the day. Staying hydrated helps control hunger, maintains a healthy metabolism and aids in digestion.
Although liposuction can significantly improve the contour of your body, it is not magic. You could still gain weight after liposuction in different areas of the body. It is an invasive procedure that costs time and money. Invest in your body now and start making lifestyle changes before the procedure. Maintaining a regular exercise routine and a good diet will lead you to choose a happy and healthy lifestyle regardless.
