How to Keep Weight off After Liposuction

Posted November 05, 2012 in Body Contouring

Ok so you have met with Dr. Ackerman and you have decided to move forward with liposuction Newport Beach.  Now is a great time to make some healthy changes to your lifestyle so you keep the weight off after your liposuction Newport Beach procedure.

The first step to keeping the weight off is to start a healthy diet and exercise program that is suitable for your body type.  In addition by starting this now before surgery you will heal quicker and have favorable results because your body is operating at its best.

  • small changes to your diet can help keep the weight off after your liposuction procedure.
  • reduce hunger by drinking lots of water and aid your body in flushing out toxins.
  • make a healthy breakfast as a way to start each day.
  • eat fresh foods preferably organic and make sure your plate has plenty of fruits and vegetables on it.
  • avoid sugars read labels and keep your carb intake derived from sugars to a minimum.
  • eat more super foods that are rich in antioxidants
  • boost your metabolism and energy by exercising for at least 30 minutes a day.
After you have your surgery you may feel sore for a few days following.  You will get back to your normal routines rather quickly.  In most cases you will be able to start your normal work out routines at about 6 weeks following your procedure.  Start slow and listen to your body, you will be back to your normal work out regimen in no time.

If you find yourself falling back into bad habits, make a weight maintenance commitment with a friend, co-worker, or relative who also wants to maintain a healthy weight. Supporting each other can help you both resist temptations. With a balanced diet and regular exercise, you’ll keep your new contours for a long time.

Liposuction isn’t magic. You can still gain weight after the procedure, although it may appear in a different area of your body. Stay motivated. Hang on to the satisfaction and renewed self-esteem you felt when you first looked in the mirror after the surgery. By making lifestyle changes before your procedure, you can get the most out of liposuction: a better proportioned body that reflects the new you—a healthy, vibrant, active adult.
