Liposuction Results

Following liposuction, some bruising and swelling are to be expected. With proper surgical preparation and aftercare, these things should subside within a few weeks, allowing your newly contoured shape to fully shine.

Once you have fully recovered, your new contours will be permanent… to a point. The process of aging and your lifestyle choices will play determining factors as well.

Nothing can stop the process of aging. Gravity will, eventually, cause the skin to sag and may, in some people, make weight management more difficult. This makes how you live the biggest factor in how long your liposuction results will last. You can expect long-lasting results if you choose to eat a healthy diet and engage in sufficient amounts of exercise. These simple steps will go a long way towards helping your liposuction results last forever.

Do I Have to be a Triathlete?

You do not have to be an endurance athlete to maintain liposuction results. The CDC recommends adults aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise weekly. This, combined with simple weight training, is all many people require to maintain a healthy physique. You may want to work with a personal trainer while figuring out your routine to help ensure it is optimized for your needs.

The same is true of diet. Making smart choices is essential for maintaining results, but these can be hard to determine on your own. Consider working with a nutritionist to find a diet that is suitable for your anatomy, blood type, and activity level to help ensure the longest-lasting liposuction results.
