You don’t need a perfect body to benefit from plastic surgery, but we’ve found that healthy, fit patients typically achieve the best results. If you’re thinking about plastic surgery, spend a little time getting in shape first.
Focus on the Goal
Getting in shape can be hard, but it is often easier when you have a concrete goal in mind. Think of your new body and use it as inspiration to keep trying, even when things are difficult. You can do it!
Many people incorrectly assume that plastic surgery is a substitute for getting in shape. The reality is a complete opposite. When you’re in shape, your results are better and the surgery is safer. Take liposuction for example. Liposuction isn’t a weight loss treatment. It is best performed on patients that have lost the weight, but are struggling with isolated fat pockets. When we treat these specific areas, we can make lasting changes to your physique. Those fat cells will be removed forever. Even if you gain weight, the concentration of fat in the treated areas will likely be significantly less.
Seek Improvement, Not Perfection
You don’t have to do everything alone. Plastic surgery is here to help you achieve your ideal body, after all you can do. Lose the weight and then choose liposuction to finish the process and shape your body. Do what you can to prevent aging with proper sun protection and then choose a cosmetic procedure to help reverse the signs of aging that do occur. Do what you can on your own and then come see us to finish your transformation. You improve and we’ll perfect.
One of the best things you can do for your health before plastic surgery is to quit smoking. We recommend that all patients stop smoking before surgery, and avoid smoking during recovery. Your health will thank you if you stop altogether.
Choose Fruits and Vegetables
A healthy body starts with healthy fuel. Be careful about what you’re eating and focus on fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet. Get in the habit of eating right before surgery so you can maintain your results through good habits.
Do you exercise enough? If you want to get in shape for plastic surgery, make exercise a priority. You’ll likely need to skip the gym for several weeks after surgery, so establish good habits now. Regular exercise can help you to maintain a healthy weight, especially important after body contouring and abdominal procedures, like a tummy tuck or liposuction.
