Will I Still Need To Diet and Exercise After Liposuction?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


We have often emphasized on this blog and throughout this site that liposuction, while extraordinarily effective at helping Denver-area residents remove stubborn deposits of fat, is not a weight loss procedure.

It’s also important to understand that diet and exercise are still crucial after liposuction. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is still necessary if you are to look and feel your best.

Liposuction will remove the fat cells from the treatment area, which means that part of your body will be rather resistant to new, unsightly fat. However, calories added after liposuction have to go somewhere, and other parts of your body can still grow in less-than-ideal ways after your procedure.

In short, if you’re undergoing liposuction because you have unwanted deposits of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, that implies you’re doing all the right things and just want your body to reflect your efforts. Keep up the good work after liposuction and you’ll be fine.

Our plastic surgeons will be happy to answer all of your liposuction questions, including those related to your post-surgery lifestyle.
