I want a small waist but I know liposuction on my waist won't make a huge difference so I was thinking about getting waist training after liposuction to get maximum results, is this safe? would this be effective?
Is It Safe to Get Waist Training After Getting Waist Liposuction
Doctor Answers (8)
The more you exercise after lipo, the quicker you see the great results!
I start patients walking right away the next day after liposuction and they can start strenuous exercising 1 week after the procedure. I do the tumescent technique local liposuction and the patients walk out after the surgery just fine. Good Luck.
Weight training after liposuction
Resuming exercise too soon after liposuciton can increase swelling (edma) and possibly even cause small areas of bleeding that produce firm hard bumpy areas. To minimize this exercise should be avoided for 3 weeks. I prefer a course of Pilates style exercise regimen to promote core strengthening.
In general people who undergo liposuction can return to light exercise in 24 hours
In general people who undergo liposuction can return to light exercise in 24 hours, especially if done under local anesthesia. If the waist area is treated, then it is usually advisable to wait several dfays before really targetting this area in the gymn. Always ask your doctor what he/she recommends.

Exercise after liposuction safe and helpful
Exercising your waist after getting waist liposuction is safe and exercise will certainly help improve your results. Remember, though, that waist exercises may strengthen the muscles in your waist, but may not make your waist slimmer. You have to burn calories to lose fat, so you may need to incorporate cardio. As far as when it is safe to start exercising, let your surgeon guide you. I perform liposuction using local anesthesia only (tumescent liposuction), and I advise patients that they can return to exercising within the first week.
Resuming Waist Training After waist Liposuction
There should be no problem working out after you have healed from liposuction.
Abdominal liposuction is performed in a variety of ways. For this reason, you need to ask your specific liposuction surgeon when it is safe to return to vigorous exercise. I practice tumescent liposuction and generally patients return to their work outs in 2 to 5 days. However, many surgeons require their patients to wait a longer period of time before permitting a return to the gym. This time frame is based on experience with prior patients and how they have done. For this reason, you need direct guidance from your actual surgeon. It is not appropriate to follow another surgeon's time frame for returning to the gym. However, ultimately, no tummy lipo will in no way prevent you from working out like crazy after surgery once your surgeon releases you to return to the gym.
