Why You Shouldn’t Break Up with Your Workout after Liposuction

fit woman exercising in gymLeading up to your liposuction, you may have been hitting the gym a little extra and paying close attention to your diet. But you shouldn’t kick these healthy exercise and diet habits to the curb just because you’ve had a body contouring procedure. Here’s why.

Not All Fat Is Created Equal

It’s important to understand the distinction between the two different types of fat within your body — visceral and subcutaneous:

  • Visceral fat lies deeper within the body and surrounds your organs. This type of fat cannot be removed through liposuction, so the only way to get rid of it is to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
  • Subcutaneous fat is the layer of “pinchable” fat just beneath your skin. This is the type of skin that liposuction targets, although it is still recommended that you try to lose weight before getting liposuction or other body contouring treatments.

You Should Still Exercise after Liposuction

Body contouring does not make it impossible to gain weight in the future, so exercising after liposuction is an important component of maintaining your new look.

Remember that liposuction is a body contouring tool, not a weight loss tool.

No cosmetic procedure can eliminate the need to get enough exercise and eat a balanced diet to keep your body healthy. So even after body contouring treatments, stick with your exercise schedule and healthy eating choices to not only help to maintain your results but to also to maximize your health and happiness.
