Liposuction can be a great way to remove stubborn deposits of fat that don’t seem to go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. However, lipo isn’t able to keep the weight from coming back later. Here are 4 ways you can make sure you have the best liposuction results:
1. Stay Active
Although you should listen to the advice of your plastic surgeon before adopting any exercise regimen after lipo, getting back to the gym is one of the most important parts of maintaining your liposuction results long-term. Lipo targets diet- and exercise-resistant subcutaneous fat, but exercise plays an important role in keeping weight gain to a minimum.
2. Adopt a Healthy Diet
When considering a diet to help you maintain a healthy weight, a whole foods-based diet may be a good choice. Include plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, drink lots of plain water (instead of soda or caffeinated beverages) and enjoy lean protein choices at your meals.
To get the best results from your liposuction, you should make sure to commit to leading a healthy lifestyle that’s rich in whole foods and exercise.
3. Travel by Bike
Bicycling is an increasingly popular way to get around many places. Whether doing your part to help the environment by commuting to work by bike or simply coasting around the park on a nice day, leaving your car at home can save you money while keeping your activity level up for the best long-term liposuction results.
4. Drink Plenty of Water
Staying hydrated is key to maintaining an optimally functioning body. The human body is made mostly of water, so prioritizing proper hydration keeps skin healthy and supple and may even help you maintain a steady weight. Together, these factors can help ensure the best liposuction results over time.
