Liposuction – or “lipo,” as it is commonly known – is a body contouring procedure that removes fat deposits that won’t respond to diet and exercise. It actually removes fat cells from treated areas and they won’t return unless significant weight gain occurs. However if that does happen, a patient’s body can lose some of its new shape and can even take on strange contours as fat is forced to accumulate in different parts of the body. That’s why it’s vital to monitor weight gain closely and keep it in check following surgery.
To maintain post-surgery results, patients should:
- Eat a healthy, well-rounded diet low in fats and sugars
- Follow a regular exercise regimen
- Increase daily water intake
If you are considering liposuction, consult a plastic surgeon to decide if the procedure is right for you. Many residents of Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg, Sarasota, and surrounding areas turn to Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Bayshore Plastic Surgery. Dr. Greenwald was educated and trained at Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and the University of Chicago. He has extensive experience performing liposuction and can help you learn how to maintain the final results.
