Why Exercising After Liposuction Is Essential

Liposuction is a popular procedure among people seeking to lose excess body fat. It is by no measure a means to an end when it comes to sustainable fat loss.

Liposuction is a popular procedure among people seeking to lose excess body fat. It is, however, by no measure a means to an end when it comes to sustainable fat loss when it comes to the whole body.

Where Does The Fat Go After Liposuction

Liposuction permanently removes fat and fat cells from the treated areas and reduces the chances of regrowth considerably. However, other parts of the body that were not treated may experience growth in the number of fat cells as the body readjusts.

So what can you do? The answer is exercise.

The Importance Of Exercise

Exercise, as we all know, is good for the body. It is even more so when it comes to maintaining fat loss post-liposuction. A key reason is it helps in preventing the redistribution of fat to other parts of the body that were not involved in the procedure. This redistribution is also known as compensatory weight gain. During liposuction, adipose tissue is removed from the body which can result in the “compensatory growth of visceral fat” as according to Fabiana Braga Benatti, PhD, of the University of Sao Paulo, who is also the lead author on a study done on the role of exercise post-liposuction.

True Result Is Down To Due Diligence

Liposuction may be the solution to permanent excess fat loss but true and lasting result is down to simple due diligence, and this involves eating healthy and exercise. Walking or jogging coupled with some light weight training will go a long way in preventing fat accumulation and the forming of visceral fat especially on the other body parts that were not treated. Additionally, they help to enhance the effect of your newfound healthier and slimmer physique.

As effective as liposuction is in eliminating excess fat in the intended areas, it does not prevent fat accumulation on parts that were not treated. A key thing to take note is not to jump straight into an exercise program immediately after the procedure, as the body needs time to heal.

Consult your doctor on when it is best for you to start exercising and start with something light
