4 Aftercare Tips For Liposuction D.C. By Hadi Rassael on January 06, 2014

Liposuction surges in popularity during the winter months. People everywhere are going through the post-liposuction healing and transformation process under their cold-weather clothing. Come spring, they can shed the heavy coats with confidence.


Liposuction D.C. plays an integral role in many people’s weight-loss plans, but, in order to be truly successful, liposuction should be complemented by a good aftercare regimen. Eating well and exercising regularly in conjunction with liposuction will provide the longest-lasting results. In short, people who are dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle gain the most from their procedure.


Below, you will find four aftercare tips that can help you have success with liposuction. If you choose Millennium Medical as your liposuction clinic, you will receive a more comprehensive list of aftercare instructions following your procedure. We believe in helping our clients achieve and maintain their results. To schedule a consultation, Call Us At 301-652-9005 Today!


1. Make Exercise A Habit


Imagine you buy a house that has potential but needs a lot of work. Imagine that you spend the better part of a year fixing everything that you can before calling a contractor to finish everything else. What do you do after your house looks great? You switch gears to maintain your investment.


The same is true for your body. Liposuction is a contouring procedure aimed at getting your body to a place where you can be confident looking in the mirror, but it is up to you to keep your new shape. Find a gym, or take up running or cycling. Make sure that you set clear goals for how many hours you will exercise each week, so that it becomes a habit.


2. Limit Your Salt Intake


Immediately after your procedure, you should start watching your salt intake. Livestrong recommends limiting salt for at least two to four months after your procedure. Sodium can affect the healing process and cause bloating.


Take the saltshaker off the table, and cook with a greater variety of spices to keep your recovery on track. After you make a full recovery, why not keep it up? Putting limits on the amount of salt in your diet decreases your risk for dehydration and high blood pressure.


3. Cut Sugary And Processed Foods Out Of Your Diet


Eating foods with large amounts of sugar can cause you to gain weight during the healing process. After your procedure, you should focus on structuring your diet around foods that are nutritious. Don’t eat anything that doesn’t add nutrients to your body.


4. Leave Alcohol Behind


For the first few weeks, you will be instructed to stay away from alcoholic beverages, because they could interact with your pain medication. Your recovery is a great time to change the way you think about alcohol. Rely on water to keep you hydrated and suppress your appetite instead of drinking wine.
