With the summer season fast approaching, one of the more commonly requested procedures, is patients asking for liposuction. The decision to undergo liposuction can result in an improvement in the appearance and contour of your body. Most people undergoing liposuction report a boost in self-esteem after the process ends.

However, returning to the same old habits which led to your decision to have liposuction in the first place is one of the common misconceptions which leads to unsatisfactory changes. Liposuction is NOT a weight-loss treatment. Its purpose is to re-sculpt the body by removing stubborn fat deposits. You might lose two sizes; however, it is rare for someone to lose more than 7 pounds from the procedure.

Liposuction Does Not Remove Toxic Fat: The fat that lies directly underneath the skin is the only fat that can ever be lipoed. The most amount of fat is no more than 2-3 pounds of fat can be lipoed safely. What can not be removed is the toxic fat, or excessive intra-abdominal fat which is associated with heart disease and diabetes, can never be lipoed since it lies deep inside the abdomen below the abdominal muscle. The only way to reduce that excess fat load to normal levels is to adopt healthy lifestyle choices. Remember in case if you regain the weight you’ll probably be adding more inside your belly and make it more complicated. Come on, everyone. Get that healthy lifestyle going right now and avoid this gain and regain cycle altogether.

On the contrary,
Lifestyle and dietary modifications helps in maintaining the liposuction results. It is not magic even though, liposuction can improve your body contours as you imagine. Gaining weight after liposuction is one of the issues many people complain of, in different areas of your body. It is an invasive procedure that costs money and time.

healthy diet most of the visible benefits of exercise won’t be appreciated. In general, diet after liposuction surgery should include following modifications at least to maintain liposuction effects.

Doctors at SPARKLE recommend that patients should walk as much as possible in the days and weeks following surgery.

The main causes of weight gain after liposuction surgery is stress.This means that you’ll need to learn to relax to avoid weight gain.

Stress raises levels of cortisol in a person’s system, which in turn creates a craving for all kinds
of unhealthy foods. Some studies even suggest that raised cortisol levels reduce the number of
calories burned by the body. Higher levels of insulin released because of the junk food eaten
