Undergoing liposuction takes planning and preparation to achieve the best results. If you do not follow instructions given to you or you make the wrong decision when you are caring for yourself afterwards, your results may differ from what you expected. Below, we will go over some tips to help you get the best results from your procedure.
Know about the procedure
Before you have liposuction performed, learn about the procedure and do your research. There is a lot of information you need to go over and it is easy to become frustrated. To prevent this from happening, simply take your time and do not rush. In addition, ask your doctor for his or her advice about the procedure and what you can expect.
Some of the things you need to consider when doing your research include looking for the right surgeon, choosing a facility, learning about your payment options, and more.
Know all of your options
To have a successful procedure, you need to know your options and then decide which one is best for you. For example, do you prefer ultrasonic or laser liposuction, traditional liposuction, general anesthesia? These are all decisions you have to make and having information about all of the options will help you make the right choice.
Reach your goal weight and maintain it
You should work hard to reach your goal weight or be close to your goal weight BEFORE you go in for surgery. If you are not, you will find that the surgery does not go as planned and you may be unhappy with the results you receive.
Since liposuction is not a form of weight loss surgery, you should not use it like it is. If you do need to lose weight beforehand, schedule your procedure out far enough that you can reach and maintain your ideal weight first.
Follow all post-surgery instructions
It can be easy to just want to sit back and let your body heal on its own, but it is imperative that you follow all of your doctor’s care instructions after the procedure. If you do not, you will find that your results are not what you expected and you may have undesired side effects.
Some of the things you need to do after surgery include:
- Continue eating healthy
- Avoid smoking
- Wear the compressions garment
- Take medication as instructed
- Avoid heavy duty lifting and activities
- Wear loose fitting clothing
Your post-surgery results may take some time to show, so you should not go into surgery thinking that you will come out of anesthesia and instantly look skinny or free from fat. If you follow all of the instructions given to you by your doctor, you will achieve the best results.
To ensure that your liposuction surgery goes as planned and you do in fact receive your desired results, talk to your surgeon about whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure.
