How to Get the Best Liposuction Experience
Are you thinking of getting a liposuction procedure? If yes, then there are quite a few things you should know first to get the best results possible. Of course, you would want to consult with a qualified surgeon first. Someone who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Second, you need to maintain a regular exercise routine and healthy diet to ensure optimum health. Third, and probably one of the most important reminders of all: don’t smoke, or take in any anti-coagulant medication for around 2 weeks before the liposuction procedure.
Not all liposuction procedure candidates are considered overweight. They don’t really have loose and sagging skin. Are you excited for your upcoming procedure? To ensure lasting results, be reminded of the following towards better liposuction recovery:
Maintain a regular exercise routine.
As much as possible, avoid being sedentary while on the way to recovery. Walk comfortable to reduce blood clot risks, a common complication that may happen after a liposuction surgery.
Not only will it help you lower complication risks, it will also help you feel more normal and healthier after the procedure. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise for around 4 weeks, and just resort to a regular, light exercise routine for a safer recovery period.
Now that you have lesser fat, exercising will feel even more rewarding. Trust me, you will see results more quickly, and it will motivate you to continue on with this healthier lifestyle.
Make sure to keep a healthy diet.
Your road to recovery should be also be guided not just by an exercise routine, but also by a healthy diet. Right after the surgery, make sure to drink lots of water and other liquids for hydration. Hydration is important because your body may swell for many days—you wouldn’t want to be dehydrated at this period of time.
To improve the long-term result of your procedure, you need to restricting your calorie and fat intake. You can still gain fat easily, so you need to be very careful with your choice of food.
One thing you should remember is that liposuction is not in any way a substitute for weight loss. A healthy diet is still they key to maintaining and enhancing the well-loved result.
Don’t forget to wear a compression garment.
After the liposuction procedure, your body will fill the treated area with some fluids. This is a natural response. During your recovery period, wearing a compression garment will decrease the swelling and pain that you are feeling. Moreover, it can help your body take on a new, improved shape.
It is highly recommended to wear your garment for at least 2 weeks, though some patients prefer to wear them on a much longer time period for more comfort.
Enhance the long-term results!
Some patients heal faster than others. The most important thing is, leading yourself healthily to full recovery by following the aforementioned guidelines. Doing so would enhance the results of your liposuction procedure. Don’t panic about initial swelling—it will go away after the first few weeks.
The recovery period may differ from person to person. However, the beautiful long-term result of a more proportionate, slimmer body remains same for every patient.
