This is a great question. Absolutely! With any body contouring procedure, it is mandatory to establish a healthy diet, exercise and lifestyle both before and after surgery. I always feel like it is 50% surgery and 50% lifestyle that leads to your final result. Furthermore, if you are muscularly fit, you will be able to lift and move easier in the early postoperative period. Your contour will be enhanced as well!
