Liposuction is celebrated as a highly versatile and customizable body contouring procedure that can be effective on almost any part of the body.*
Many adults have localized stubborn pockets of fat that linger despite diet and exercise, and liposuction can target problem areas. If you’ve got stubborn spots you’d like to tone up with lipo, there are several things you can do to optimize your outcome.*
Be the Right Candidate
Liposuction targets isolated fatty deposits, but is not a solution for weight loss. Being at a stable, desired weight is one of the most important criteria for being a good liposuction candidate.*
Being a good candidate for liposuction also means having a realistic understanding of what body contouring can do for you. Plastic surgery procedures are designed to enhance appearance but liposuction isn’t a magic bullet. It’s important to have clear expectations about what liposuction can achieve and to be patient with your recovery.
Support Your Recovery
Wearing a compression garment as you heal can improve your comfort and help manage swelling.* Another way you can support your recovery is to eat a low-sodium diet that’s packed with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Invest in Your Long-term Results
Maintaining your weight with diet and exercise is the best way that you can protect your liposuction results.* The body contouring procedure can eliminate fatty pockets,* but it won’t prevent you from gaining weight in the future. It’s up to you to invest in yourself through a healthy lifestyle.
