What Are the Best Ways to Improve Liposuction Results?

Even if you’re in mostly good shape, there may always be one or two areas that you wish you could slim down, whether the stubborn fat forms love handles, a belly bulge, thick thighs, a double chin, or something else. The reason why liposuction surgery is so effective is because it directly removes the fat cells that you can’t lose from select areas through exercising and dieting. When you’re having surgical body contouring at our Los Angeles-adjacent plastic surgery practice, what you do before and after the procedure can play a major role in the results. This is why it’s important for patients to do their research on both surgical preparation and aftercare.

Ever wondered if there were a way of getting better liposuction results and healing at a faster rate after surgery? Here are three tips for maximizing the outcome of this fat-reduction technique. 

Maintain Good Health

The ideal candidates for liposuction are in a good state of health with no urgent medical issues and are close to their ideal weight. In the time leading up to your surgery, exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet. Quit smoking, as the habit could increase your risk of complications from surgery. Drink plenty of liquids to avoid dehydration. 

Wear Your Compression Garment 

Compression garments help to relieve the discomfort and swelling that are known side effects of liposuction. They help your body to absorb some fluids and prevent a buildup, as well as help your skin to retract smoothly around your newly slimmer contours. This allows you to heal faster and look better once your body adjusts to its new shape. 

Start or Resume Working Out 

If you aren’t exercising already, start a workout routine after we give you approval to do so following your liposuction surgery. If you’re already a workout regular, we’ll let you know when it’s safe to continue your typical routine. Exercising helps to build muscle tone, which will make you look more sculpted and avoid future weight gain. 

If you’re ready to sculpt more balanced and proportional contours to enhance your body shape, talk to our team at Cosmetic Surgery Institute for more advice on liposuction for body contouring. Contact us by calling (760) 837-0364 or submit a contact form to request a consultation and find out what to expect before and after this surgical fat-reduction treatment.

I'm into 1 year after having my saline breast augmentation and I can't be happier. The results are exactly what I wanted; they look and feel super natural. The staffs are helpful in making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you may have. The doctor is very pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend him to any one of my friends and/or family!

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.
