Things you should pay attention to before and after liposuction

Liposuction is performed to get rid of the fat that won’t leave your body, no matter how much you diet or exercise. It is a technique generally used on the hips, abdomen, thighs, breasts, arms, face, and neck. Liposuction can also be performed along with a number of aesthetic procedures such as facelift, breast lift and neck lift.

The most important information you need to know about liposuction is that it is definitely not a weight loss application. At the same time, it is not a cellulite treatment. Therefore, you should make sure that your general health is good. For example, you must have tight but supple skin, be close to your ideal weight and, if possible, not smoke. If you are taking medications such as blood thinners or antibiotics, your doctor may recommend that you stop taking them 2 weeks before the procedure. Therefore, a good consultation with your doctor is important.

During your consultation with your doctor prior to liposuction, your doctor will explain in detail the points you need to pay attention to, as described above. After the procedure, there are some specific things you should do and follow. After the procedure, you will usually be discharged within a few hours. Depending on the technique your doctor uses, you may experience edema, pain, and swelling throughout your body. It depends not only on the technique, but also on your body and skin type. To prevent this, your doctor may ask you to wear a corset for 3-4 weeks. After the procedure, you can fully return to your daily routine within two days, and after 6 weeks, you can perform your daily activities such as sports.

After liposuction you can:

  • Be very careful not to gain weight. Therefore, stay away from pastries and sugary foods. Instead, try to eat protein-rich foods, fruits, and low-fat foods. Do light exercises, taking care of yourself and the areas where you are having liposuction.
  • Try to consume plenty of unsweetened natural fruit juices, water, and herbal teas. Remember that regular fluid intake is an important part of the treatment even after the procedure.
  • Eat fresh vegetables and fruits.
  • Try not to eat fruits with high sugar content.
  • Eat fish, walnuts, and foods high in omega 3. A whole grain diet may be recommended for this purpose.

Don’t do the following after liposuction:

  • Eliminate sweets, candies and pastries from your life.
  • Avoid salty foods after the procedure. Salty foods can cause edema in your body. This leads to an increase in swelling after liposuction. It will cause significant regression in your treatment process. Be sure to avoid salty foods for 2 to 4 months.
  • Be sure to avoid alcohol. Alcohol should be avoided not only after the procedure, but also 2 weeks before the procedure. Alcoholic beverages will cause your body to become dehydrated. We have found that fluid intake after the procedure is an important part of treatment.
