5 Ways to Get the Most From Your Liposuction

You are determined to say farewell to stubborn fat once and for all. Fortunately, your resolve is possible with the help of today’s non-invasive fat removal technologies.

Liposuction and advanced laser fat removal techniques–such as SculpSure, Liposonix and SmartLipo– can help you perfect your shape and lead to enduring results. But how can you ensure that your body-sculpting investment continues to pay dividends over time?

When asked about the best way to maintain results after liposuction, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, an internationally renowned fat removal specialist, emphasizes the power of healthy habits. Here are his top 5 tips for staying trim after liposuction:

  • Exercise. Although it may be tempting to skip that trip to the gym after liposuction, a fat removal procedure should be viewed as part of an overall slimming strategy. In fact, exercise is the most important factor in maintaining your lean, sculpted figure.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet. Like exercise, diet plays a crucial role in keeping the body in top form. After liposuction, fat cells are permanently removed. However, a poorly managed diet can lead to weight fluctuations, which can diminish the benefits of liposuction.
  • Manage your stress. From energy levels to the quality of our skin, the effects of stress on our bodies can be significant. Unfortunately, a high level of stress can also be a predictor for fat accumulation. Cortisol, a stress hormone, is linked to unhealthy food cravings–specifically, a desire for food that tends to expand the waistline. When you are facing a deadline at work, avoid reaching for a bag of chips.
  • Stay hydrated. Laser liposuction techniques take advantage of the body’s own waste removal system to flush out fat cells once they are destroyed by laser energy. Give your body a cleansing boost and drink plenty of water, particularly in the 6-12 weeks after treatment.
  • Quit smoking. After a liposuction procedure, you want to encourage the body to heal. Even if you are a moderate smoker, smoking not only puts your health at risk, you are slowing your body’s ability to bounce back.

Summer Ready Stomach

For many people, summertime is that unique time of the year when they wish to be in the best shape possible. It is the time to hit the beach and take in the sun. However, one major concern people face is the fact that they just can’t get rid of the “love handles”.

The long process of going on diet after diet and following a strict exercise regimen can be tiresome and frustrating, especially if you fail to remove excess fat. Dr. Paul J. Frank offers several ways to eliminate fat, including Exilis Elite, SmartLipo and VASER, and Liposonix.

  • Exilis Elite: As we get older, the skin on our neck and chin loses crucial proteins, like collagen and elastin, which maintain the tautness of the skin. This is the primary cause of developing loose, sagging skin. Exilis Elite is a non-surgical and innovative treatment method which restores the collagen in the skin. It targets the very origin of the skin to tighten and tone the region of the body. Plus, the results can be seen right away and will continue to improve over the next two weeks.
  • Liposuction: Among several other techniques, Dr. Frank uses two primary liposuction technologies called SmartLipo and VASER. These will work great for you if you are physically fit for the most part, but are having trouble getting rid of fat stored around the torso, thighs, chin, neck, arms, and knees. Thanks to Dr. Frank’s ingenuity, liposuction procedures are minimally-invasive and recovery period is just 48 hours.
  • Liposonix: Like SmartLipo and VASER, Liposonix can also be used in many different areas of the body to remove fat. This procedure attacks the fat cells underneath the skin and heats them up. Once these cells are killed, they are naturally removed by the body in about twelve weeks.

All three of these treatments have been proven to give results. So, which one should you choose? It is recommended that you consult Dr. Frank before choosing a procedure. Feel free to contact him and set up an initial consultation.
