Changes to Make Following Liposuction

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

If you’ve finally decided that 2020 is the year you’re going to get long-awaited liposuction in Itasca, congratulations! Liposuction targets stubborn fat that diet and exercise cannot get rid of. However, it is always a possibility for those who have liposuction to ultimately gain back the fat that they lost during the procedure. It’s important that the liposuction procedure kickstarts a shift in mindset and behavior so you can continue to enjoy the benefits of your procedure.

Ease Back Into Activity

Although this is not a permanent lifestyle change, taking it easy the first week or two following your procedure is extremely important. You should avoid physical activity during the initial recovery period, including avoiding lifting heavy objects or working out. If your job requires a lot of physical movement, we suggest taking off or opting for less demanding tasks until your body is up for it.

Care for Your Body

There are a handful of simple ways to care for your body following liposuction in Itasca. Try to avoid medications that cause bruising. You should also aim to maintain a normal blood pressure so that your body isn’t working too hard to stay stable.

Eat Healthy

Of course, your diet is a major factor to keep in check following the procedure. Eating healthy foods will help keep the stubborn weight off and maintain the surgery’s benefits. Your dietshould consist of a healthy mixture of grains, fruits, vegetables and fats.
While liposuction doesn’t guarantee immediate and permanent results, many patients are extremely happy with their results. If you’re interested in exploring liposuction this year, please get in touch with our team today!
