Liposuction can be an effective way to remove excess fat, shape your body into a sleeker silhouette and boost your confidence and self-esteem. While you should see a beautiful outcome from your lipo procedure, following these simple tips can help you maximize your results.
Be a Good Candidate
The first part of achieving great results with liposuction starts with being a good candidate. You should be at or close to your target weight and have pockets of stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise.
Lipo isn’t a weight-loss procedure. It’s a body contouring tool that can bring definition to your body and remove smaller amounts of extra fat in the thighs, hips, love handles, upper arms, back, chin, neck and other areas.
After your lipo procedure, get up and get moving as soon as you can. Easy walking can reduce swelling and improve blood circulation to help your body heal. Set a goal of walking for a few minutes each hour or two inside, then work up to longer excursions outside.
Wear a Compression Garment
Throughout your recovery, wear your compression garment as directed by Dr. Meade. A compression garment should fit comfortably, yet snug. The garment helps to hold your tissue, muscles and skin in place together to reduce swelling, increase blood circulation, improve healing and ensure the best results.
Maintain a Stable Weight
As you enjoy your new look, keep in mind that your part isn’t over. You should still eat a healthy diet and exercise to help you stay at your goal weight and maintain your liposuction results long-term.
