How to Stay Slimmer for Longer After Lipo or a Tummy Tuck
With a surgical procedure like an abdominoplasty or liposuction, we can help you get rid of stubborn fat from your body. However, to ensure that you get long lasting results, we encourage all of our patients to create a post-surgery plan before they go under the knife. By creating a plan before the surgery even takes place, you can start on it as soon as you are out of recovery. From creating a diet plan to getting enough sleep, this article will list three ways you can keep the fat off once and for all after your surgery.
Create an Eating Plan
One of the best ways you can keep the weight off after surgery is to eat a diet high in protein and low in carbohydrates. However, make sure that you create an eating plan that you can stick with for the long run. Diets that are too restricting are hard to be consistent with and usually result in patients gaining the weight back. For instance, make small changes like only eating carbohydrates that are rich in whole grains like whole wheat pasta and bread.
Work It Out
More than just to keep weight off, working out is also good for your head and your heart. Plus, those extra endorphins can give you the energy you need to tackle your long list of daily tasks. When creating a workout plan, make sure to choose something that has a combination of cardio and weights.
Get Enough Sleep
The more tired and exhausted you are, the more likely you are to overload your body with sugar, carbohydrates, and processed foods to help maintain a healthy energy level. Everyone needs at least eight hours of sleep every night to get enough recuperative rest.
Undergoing a tummy tuck or liposuction are life-changing procedures that will give you great results. However, to make sure that your results are long lasting, you need to eat right, work out often, and get enough sleep.
