So lipo happened, and then you looked in the mirror. Before you panic about seeing a weird body shape after liposuction, here are a few things you should know about your results.

Hello, Swelling

As amazing at it would be to magically see your full liposuction results as soon as you get home from your procedure, the reality is that you’re probably going to look and feel bloated and not so slim at first. That’s because you’re going to experience some significant swelling and water retention during the first stage of lipo recovery.

But the good news is that this isn’t going to last forever, and you should start to see your slimmer, sexier contours taking shape as swelling diminishes.

Renew Your Gym Membership

Liposuction results can be very long-lasting, but there are a few caveats. First, lipo isn’t a license to get rid of your gym membership. In fact, keeping up with your workout routine is one of the best ways to make sure your liposuction results are here to stay.

Equally important is sticking to that healthy diet you probably worked so hard to develop leading up to your body contouring procedure.

Don’t blow your liposuction results with sugary drinks and fried foods. Treat your body to plenty of fresh fruits and veggies to help you keep your same results.

When to Consider a Touch-Up

Most people see great long-lasting results from lipo. But just like first-love butterflies and summer vacation, liposuction isn’t necessary permanent. Pregnancy, weight gain or even the natural aging process can all be cause for a touch-up procedure down the road to maintain those same smooth, foxy curves.
