4 Steps To Take Before Your Liposuction Procedure By Hadi Rassael on May 19, 2014

You’ve decided to get liposuction, and you’ve selected a time to get it done and the surgeon who will do it, so now it’s all about waiting until the day comes, right?


Wrong. Now is the time to start preparing for your procedure. Liposuction is an investment in yourself, so why not give your investment the best chance of producing great returns? There are many measures that you can take to ensure the success of your treatment. Ask your doctor to give you some advice or continue reading to learn to find four easy ways to prepare for your procedure.

If you are planning to have liposuction in Washington D.C., come talk to us. At Millennium Medical, our business is structured entirely around our clients and making sure they have a safe, relaxed and fruitful experience with liposuction. If you would like to set up a time to discuss your procedure, give us a call at 301-652-9005.

1. Ditch Some Weight

It’s never too late to lose a few quick pounds. Patients who are close to their weight goal experience the best results, because their surgeon is better able to identify and contour stubborn problem areas. Think of it as training for your post-liposuction life when you will be eating better and exercising more to maintain your great new look.

2. Prepare Yourself Psychologically

Most people are so busy getting their body prepared that they don’t stop to consider if they are mentally ready. It may sound strange, but take some time to make sure that you are ready to look better. If you have the procedure done but you are not ready to commit to a healthy lifestyle after, you could gain the weight back.

Yahoo News recommends that you ask all of the questions you have before the procedure. No one wants you to walk in on the day of your surgery still wondering whether or not this is the right treatment for you, least of all your surgeon, so don’t hesitate to voice concerns.

3. Build A Lipo Recovery Nest

Most patients hear that they should take a few days off of work, and they wonder what to do with all that time. Some imagine going stir crazy in their house during recovery.

Trust us: Following your procedure, you’ll be ready to relax and recuperate. After liposuction, you may not feel sore and swollen, but you’ll definitely feel tired, so plan ahead and prepare for your recovery.

Grab some healthy snacks, freeze some meals, and gather all of your tools for relaxation—books, computer, magazines, etc. Also, make sure to have plenty of fluids nearby to keep yourself hydrated.
