Tips for Maintaining Liposuction Results
One of the biggest struggles that I have heard from women who have had liposuction is how to maintain their results. Liposuction is a major surgery, and it can be very easy to gain back the weight removed during the procedure. Unfortunately, it is easier to gain weight than it is to lose it, so these are my tips for maintaining your liposuction results.
Eat a Healthy Diet
I know? It is easier to say than to do, but it is very important. Having liposuction done and then eating a very healthy “clean” diet following the surgery not only helped me to lose additional pounds but provided me with even better results than I expected.
Once your doctor clears you to begin exercising – do it. It doesn’t have to be high impact exercising, but you need to stay active. I don’t like going to a gym, so I started out by walking and then increased my cardio into running. I fit one hour of physical fitness into my schedule five days a week, and it has been key to maintaining my results.
Care for Your Skin
It might sound silly, but it is very important. As moms, we get tired, and it can be easy to climb into bed after a long day. But, it is essential to take a few minutes every morning and evening to hydrate your skin – and not just your face. I have been using the Kayo body products since having my breast surgery last year. It keeps my skin nourished, hydrated and “oh so soft.” I used the Kayo Concentrated Firming Serum on all parts of my body where I had liposuction done twice a day, and it has helped with creating a nice smooth stomach.
Drink a Lot of Water
Right after your surgery, you’re going to be extremely swollen. The more water that you drink, the faster the swelling will start to go down. Drinking large amounts of water following my surgery got me into the habit of continuing to drink a lot of water (and tea). I stopped drinking soda all together, and will only have a coffee when meeting with a friend or special dinner. It not only helps to maintain your results, but you’ll have glowing skin – I promise.
If you follow these four steps following your liposuction surgery, you’ll be so happy with the results. You’ll not only look good but will also feel amazing!
