It is very important to exercise post liposuction surgery. The key benefit of doing so is that you’ll avoid weight gain. Gaining weight after liposuction is not recommended, as it will negate the positive impact of the procedure. In addition, any weight that is gained may not be evenly distributed under the skin (in the area where you had lipo). This means that the area may look rippled and uneven, which is obviously the last thing that you want.
Benefits of exercise post liposuction
If you’ve spent good money on liposuction, your results will last much longer when you exercise in order to burn calories…and in order to stay toned! Of course, exercise has other benefits, including giving you access to the “feel-good chemicals” known as endorphins.
Any kind of cardio exercise which is performed for at least twenty minutes should give you access to endorphins, which will give you a natural high. Endorphins promote an excellent mood and a positive mindset. In addition, exercise is just so good for the cardiovascular system.
To summarize, you’ll need to avoid weight gain after liposuction. If you do gain weight, it may spoil the results from your surgery. So, try to commit to exercising at least three to four times per week, in order to enjoy the benefits of liposuction for a lifetime!
Experiment with different exercises
If you’re not fond of exercising, try to find an activity that you enjoy. There has to be something physical that you’ll love doing, whether it’s swimming, Hatha Yoga, Pilates, team sports or what have you. Just experiment with different types of physical activity until you find something that is fulfilling to do. While you may need to force yourself to exercise at first, you’ll soon become hooked on the feel-good chemicals and then you’ll be more motivated to get in your workouts each day (or a few times per week).
The good habits that we practice every day contribute greatly to how we look and feel. You’ll find that regular exercise post liposuction and a healthy diet will work wonders in terms of keeping your fat loss results truly superb.
Now that you understand the link between exercise and maintenance of liposuction results, you’ll be able to take care of yourself properly after your procedure. Your plastic surgeon will be able to give you more information about aftercare for liposuction. In the meantime, why not plan out a post-recovery exercise plan which is enjoyable and healthy?
