How Active Should You Be After Liposuction

Published on November 27th, 2017

Liposuction produces slimming results for your body, but it is important you maintain a healthy lifestyle to sustain the toned, fit look! For lasting benefits, follow these guidelines to feel and look your best after the procedure:

Post-Liposuction Care

After you have undergone liposuction in Schaumburg, you are typically able to perform light physical activity one to two days after the procedure. Light activity such as household chores and walking are important when recovering to avoid blood clots.

When you feel ready to engage in activities that require more strength, it is also suggested you only exercise at 25% your usual activity level. You can then gradually increase your routine as you feel stronger.

Working Out After the Procedure

When you are back to feeling 100%, increasing your overall activity level is recommended after getting liposuction. Harness your positive energy from feeling thinner and toned into staying active! Take more walks, join fitness groups, and stay vigilant about your diet.

Be sure to pay attention to how your body reacts when you begin a new aerobic or resistance exercise and that your incisions from surgery heal appropriately.

With regular exercise and a healthy diet, patients are likely to be more satisfied with their long-term cosmetic surgery results.  If you are interested in liposuction in Shaumburg, contact Ashpole Plastic Surgery to learn more about our procedures today!
