Many women undergo liposuction procedures every year to firm up their bodies and reduce the fat that exercise and diet just won’t. But after getting the procedure, the great body-slimming results can easily be lost by weight gain and lack of muscle tone. In order to keep your results lasting, you need to take some steps to ensure that they do! Read on below to discover some tips and ways to stay slim and gorgeous!
Diet is of course, one of the biggest causes of weight gain. Simply put, if you eat too much, you will gain weight. Likewise, if you eat too little you will lose weight too rapidly and cause sagging in the skin, as well as vitamin deficiencies in the body which can cause skin to look unhealthy.
The perfect diet for you after liposuction would be one that maintains a healthy body weight and gives your body all the nutrients it requires. You can achieve this by making sure you eat tons of antioxidant-rich foods: green, leafy vegetables, berries, omega-3 rich foods and whole grains.
Drinking enough water every day is the best thing you can do for your body! Water helps to hydrate your skin, helps the body to function properly, and helps keep hunger signals in check. Aim for 8 glasses per day, and add an extra glass whenever you drink a caffeinated beverage or workout intensely.
Working out isn’t just for losing weight – it’s a great way to keep the areas you had liposuction performed on toned. Lifting light weights and doing some toning exercise such as Pilates it yoga can protect the areas against sagging, and keep them toned and firm.
Cardiovascular exercise such as walking running – anything that gets your heart pumping is especially important to keep up your looks. Cardio burns calories the fastest and keeps weight off. Even better, doing regular cardio keeps your heart pumping, warding off signs of aging, helping you to stay younger looking, longer.
Besides having a good exercise routine, another great move is to use all the innovative beauty products at your disposal in every department store, drug store, and online! Your doctor can recommend some great products to use after liposuction too. These creams all contain ingredients known to firm skin and keeps it looking smooth. Look for creams that are ‘firming, slimming or toning’
Your liposuction result can be kept up for life – all you have to do is put a little extra effort into how you take care of your body!
