Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country. It is the most effective way to eliminate excess fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Lipo can be done on trouble spots, some less common than others, around the body to help you sculpt your ideal shape.
After your liposuction procedure, it’s easy to fall back into old habits like covering up in oversized clothes or making unhealthy lifestyle choices. Don’t do it! Use these five tips to help you improve your liposuction results and show off your great new curves.
1. Wear It Well
Ditch the boring old wardrobe and invest in pieces of clothing that accentuate your new curves. Remember that proper fit is key. You may even want to consider having some pieces tailored to fit you perfectly. Having liposuction is the perfect reason to finally jump on to the skinny jean trend or rock that form fitting dress at your next big event. Don’t forget about swimwear, either. For many people who have liposuction, few things are more exciting than shopping for a bathing suit – or even lingerie – to show off that sexy new silhouette.
2. Eat Healthy Foods
Liposuction can literally eliminate stubborn fat. Even more exciting, those results can be permanent. Of course, a lot of that is up to you. Eating right is key in maintaining your results and keeping the fat from sneaking back to your treated areas. Avoid foods that are high in saturated fat and trade in those sugary drinks for water. Eat plenty of fruits and veggies, and up your fiber intake. You won’t just be making the most of your lipo results, you’ll look and feel better (and more youthful) as a result.
Fat that returns after liposuction can be especially troublesome.
3. Exercise Regularly
For the same reasons you should eat healthy after having liposuction, you should adopt a healthy workout routine afterward. When you gain weight back after having liposuction, it can be even harder to keep it off than before. Exercise is an effective way to keep fat away for good and improve on your lipo results. If you find it hard to commit to regular workouts, try diversifying your routine. Find sports and activities that you love and incorporate them into your regimen.
4. Be the Total Package
To showcase your lovely new figure, adopt an all-over polished look. Pamper yourself with appointments to the beauty salon for a new hairstyle and maybe a mani/pedi. Have a massage once in a while. When you look better, you’ll feel better. When you feel better, you’ll look better. It’s a win-win. One especially great way to improve upon your lipo results is to beautify your skin. Talk to your plastic surgeon about non-surgical medical spa treatments that can help rejuvenate your skin.
5. Be Patient
Obviously, you’ll be excited to get out there and show off your beautiful results. Of course, you can’t exactly hit the pool right after surgery. It will take time to heal from your liposuction and for the swelling to subside. Be patient as your final lipo results begin to take shape. By following your plastic surgeon’s post-op advice and taking good care of yourself while you allow your results to develop, you should be able to enjoy your beautiful figure for many years to come.
