Stubborn fat deposits that do not go away even with a strict weight loss diet and a rigorous exercise program can be addressed by liposuction. Miami is popular for its beaches and the bodies that line the shore. If you want to have a body that is ready for the beach season, consider liposuction in Miami. Before you do, you have to understand that it is not a magic pill that will give you a wonderful figure for life. Maintaining your body requires you to do a couple of things.
Put on your compression garment
After surgery, the body responds by filling the treatment area with fluid. By putting on a compression garment, pain and swelling will be reduced. Dr. Serure will provide instructions on the length of time you have to wear the compression garment.
Follow a healthy diet
Swelling takes place for a couple of days after surgery so you have to increase your fluid intake to prevent dehydration. Limit your intake of fatty food and be conscious of your calorie consumption. Eating healthily helps in maintaining the results and you can even enhance the results of liposuction. Keep in mind that the procedure does not give the assurance that you will not gain weight after surgery.
Do not be a couch potato after surgery. You can start by walking in order to minimize the risks of blood clots, which can happen after surgery. However, you have to avoid strenuous exercises for the next 4 weeks following liposuction. Also, you have to start with mild routines and slowly go your way up.
Every person is different, so there is no general rule on when you can appreciate the best results. Swelling goes away after a few weeks although minimal swelling can still be present for a few months. Furthermore, the skin slowly tightens over a couple of months. Thus final results may be seen several months after liposuction. Then again, it does not matter how long the recovery phase will be or when you will see the final results. What matters is that you can maintain your new body.
