Liposuction removes fat cells from areas of your body that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The fat is removed permanently, but liposuction isn’t a fix for weight control.
Some people are genetically predisposed to “pockets” of fat. Others have poor diet habits or get little exercise. In addition, metabolism slows as we age. Liposuction can address any one or a combination of these problems to contour the body of your dreams. But, you have to do your part to maintain the new body that liposuction helped you achieve.
A healthy diet is critical in managing your weight, which also helps you maintain your liposuction results. What’s a healthy diet? Eat more protein, fiber, fruits and vegetables. Say “no” to foods that are heavy in fat or sugar. Feed your body well to maintain your new look.
Make regular exercise a key part of your lifestyle. It’s a great way to boost your metabolism and burn calories. Strive to include both aerobic workouts and weight training in your weekly routines. Keeping fit will help maintain your weight and your liposuction results.
Losing sleep and stress goes hand-in-hand with weight gain. Taking time to relax so that you can sleep well helps reset your body and brain so that you function more efficiently. Awakening well rested can reduce cravings for foods that aren’t good for your health, so it’s easier to maintain your diet and exercise.
Water is very important for a healthy lifestyle. Staying well hydrated helps control the number of calories you consume, so it’s easier to maintain a healthy diet. Water also helps hydrate your skin, so you look your best. If you need to watch calories or don’t drink quite enough fluid, water should be your go-to beverage most of the time.
Develop healthy habits to help you keep your new slimmer, smoother body that liposuction helped you achieve. When you take care of yourself, the rewards will show in your appearance and your overall health.
