5 Tips to Maintain Your Liposuction Results
Liposuction is a great procedure that patients in The Woodlands choose when they have stubborn areas of fat they can’t seem to burn off. A common misconception about liposuction is it’s one of the top weight loss solutions available. In reality, the procedure will actually help patient’s, who exercise regularly and are in generally good health, sculpt their body.
The one thing that patients in The Woodlands always ask is how can they maintain their liposuction results. Patients who already have an active lifestyle and eat a healthy diet shouldn’t have any problems maintaining their results, but here are the top five tips to be aware of so you can keep your liposuction results for years to come.
There are plenty of reasons why being hydrated is good for a person’s health. Many people who are actively trying to lose weight will drink a significant amount of water every day to help them do so. While patients who have recently gone through a liposuction procedure may not be looking to lose weight, drinking enough water can help maintain the results by making them feel fuller and reducing their appetite.
A diet high in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins are perfect for patients in The Woodlands who have recently undergone a liposuction procedure. These foods will keep the body lean and prevent fat cells from growing in those stubborn areas of the body again.
Increasing movement throughout the day will go a long way in reaping the benefits of liposuction for many years. Many of Dr. Myers’ patients in The Woodlands have a job requiring them to sit at a desk for most of the day. Simple activities like stretching for a couple of minutes every hour, walking around the office once or twice every hour, standing up and stretching often and taking the stairs instead of the elevator will keep liposuction patients in excellent physical condition.
Stay Away from Stressful Situations
Stressful situations are sometimes unavoidable, but there are ways to ensure the stress doesn’t linger more than it has to. Take some time to relax, go for a walk, think about the good things in life and anything else that creates happiness. Stress can cause unhealthy eating habits and snacking throughout the day. These habits can quickly add the unwanted fat cells previously removed through liposuction. Reducing stress as much as possible will allow you to maintain your newly sculpted body.
Establish an Exercise Routine
Even before patients in The Woodlands undergo liposuction, they should begin the habit of regular exercise. This isn’t a requirement, but it does make getting into a routine following liposuction much easier. Dr. Myers suggest light exercises starting a few days following the procedure and gradually increasing intensity. Getting into the habit of exercising is possibly the number one way to ensure the results of liposuction are enjoyed for many years.
