Liposuction Treatment And Your Lifestyle: FAQs About Surgery, Diet, And Exercise


How can you use a liposuction treatment, dietary changes, and physical activity to get the body you want? Take a look at what you need to know about this cosmetic procedure and the lifestyle changes that can improve the way you feel.

What Is A Liposuction Fat Reduction Treatment?

Also known as lipoplasty or by the common shortened name lipo, liposuction is a surgical fat removal procedure. A plastic surgeon removes areas of fat from the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, or neck with a suction-assisted, laser-assisted, power-assisted, or ultrasound-assisted technique. This allows the surgeon to sculpt and contour the body using a slim tube, a vacuum, heat from a laser, or sound waves. The specific type of treatment you choose depends on the doctor's recommendations, your overall health, and your cosmetic goals.

Why Would Someone Choose Lipo?

Liposuction is a spot fat reduction option for people who have persistent problem areas that don't change shape or go away with diet and exercise. If you've changed the way you eat, added physical activity, and made other adjustments to your lifestyle, lipo is a way to smooth and contour specific parts of your body.

Is Lipo Permanent?

The answer to this question is yes—and no. This surgical treatment removes fat deposits from the body. But this doesn't mean you can't or won't gain weight again. Without lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, it's possible the problem areas will return.

What Types of Lifestyle Changes Do You Need To Make With Lipo?

There are no universal lifestyle changes that work equally as well for every liposuction patient. If you've already made significant diet and activity changes (prior to the lipo procedure), you may not have to do anything different after your surgery. But if you haven't made any changes, you may want to:

  • Review your daily diet. How many calories and how much fat do you eat in one day? Do you have a balanced diet that includes healthy foods? Talk to your doctor about your individual dietary needs and the changes that you will need to make.
  • Increase your physical activity. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults need at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week along with two days of strength training activities.
  • Discuss other lifestyle factors. Your doctor can help you to understand the impact that alcohol, cigarettes, and other substances may have on your weight, surgical recovery, and the maintenance of your new shape.

Learning About Dying Your Hair At The Salon

Hello, my name is Nina. Welcome to my site about having your hair dyed and styled at the salon. I started going gray at about 30 years of age. As the gray hairs overwhelmed my formerly gorgeous locks, I knew that I needed a quick solution. Unfortunately, the box hair dye products didn't always work well and the results did not last nearly long enough. I started to go to salons to rectify the problem and was instantly hooked. I will use this site to talk about the different dye products and techniques used in the salon. I will also talk about salon styles for your hair.
