Why You Need to Keep Exercising after Liposuction

iStock_000047208028LargeMany people get liposuction to target the pesky areas of fat that diet and exercise can’t eliminate. Although the body contouring procedure can remove these fatty deposits,* it’s not a substitute for weight loss and it won’t prevent future weight gain. That’s why it’s important to keep exercising after your liposuction procedure.

Protect Your Investment

You spend valuable time, energy and resources to achieve your liposuction results, so it makes sense to protect your investment by committing to a healthy lifestyle. Many people are motivated by their liposuction results and continue their fitness routine or even kick it up a notch. In fact, exercise can be the perfect complement to liposuction. Although liposuction has the ability to sculpt away fat where exercise can’t,* regular activity and a healthy diet are the only ways to maintain a stable weight and keep those stubborn pockets of fat from making a repeat appearance.

Ease into Your Fitness Routine

It can take between 3 to 6 months to see your final liposuction results,* so don’t give up your exercise routine during your recovery and beyond. You certainly shouldn’t take up CrossFit immediately after liposuction, but you can gradually ease back into exercise as recommended by your plastic surgeon. Within two weeks, most people are able to resume their normal daily activities and can progress to moderate exercise, and participate in high-impact aerobics by four to six weeks after liposuction.*
