Liposuction removes excess fat to slim and contour various areas of the body. It is a highly requested procedure at our Lone Tree practice because of the dramatic improvements it can achieve. Patients often notice that their clothes fit better, their bodies look slimmer, and their self-confidence is higher after liposuction.
However, despite all that it can do, liposuction is not magic. Maintaining liposuction results takes some commitment. You will need to follow a healthy lifestyle to protect your new figure, and that includes eating a balanced diet.
Diet and Weight Gain After Liposuction
Keeping your weight stable is crucial when it comes to making your new contours last. That is because weight gain after liposuction will cause your remaining fat cells to expand. The more weight you gain, the less optimal your results will be. A balanced diet will help prevent weight gain that happens due to unhealthy eating habits.
To maintain your figure following your procedure, strive to include these foods in your diet:
- Lean protein
- Healthy fats
- Whole grains
At the same time, reduce your intake of sugars, highly processed foods, empty calories, and trans fats. Reach for healthy snacks to curb your cravings and prevent blood sugar levels from dropping significantly between meals.
Staying hydrated is also important. Drinking enough water throughout the day helps with hunger control, metabolism function, and digestion.
Not only will a balanced diet protect your liposuction results, but it will help you maintain good overall health. A healthy diet gives your body the nutrients it needs to work properly. Without good nutrition, you may be at a higher risk of fatigue, low performance, disease, and infection.
