Liposuction is a fantastic option when it comes to trying to shave those few extra curves that have escaped you at the gym. This procedure can come in and help you achieve the look you’ve been dreaming of and will have you turning heads in no time. However, contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not an alternative to working out. In fact, after receiving liposuction is may be even more important to work out than it was before.
The simple fact is liposuction is a contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure. Most who receive this type of procedure are those who have been hitting the gym consistently but aren’t seeing the desired results in certain areas. Weight loss may come as a result of the procedure, but it is not the specific goal.
Once you have received liposuction, the fat and fat cells that were removed from those troublesome areas are removed permanently from those areas. Fat regrowth in this area won’t occur due to the markedly fewer fat cells, but because of this fat cells in other parts of the body may pick up the slack. Diet and exercise after liposuction play a very important role in maintaining your new look, and continuing your healthy lifestyle should remain a top priority to ensure your results will last.
After you have received this procedure, it should be obvious that there is a time to heal (and heal well, we might add) before returning to your normal workout procedure. Make sure to get plenty of rest and drink plenty of water while eating healthy foods, and also following any additional instructions Dr. Kadz has given you. Healing is crucial to your liposuction – more so than the exercise routine you’ll return to afterwards.
Once you’ve healed, you can return to your normal routine but make sure to start off slowly. Ease yourself back into it. If you’re vigilant in your exercise, you’ll want to stick to weight lifting but at a lower intensity than you were previously at. Aim for lower reps and lower the weight for now while your body continues the healing process.
Should you have any additional questions or concerns, Dr. Kadz, with his twenty-plus years of experience as a board certified, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, will be there to guide you in your healing process.
