Should I Start Dieting After Smartlipo?

Doctor Answers (3)

Dieting is more appropriate before liposuction than to start after

Making sure you eat healthy is important to accomplish prior to liposuction so that you can adhere to this after the surgery as well. In this way you protect your investment in the surgery and may heal better! Liposuction is not a replacement for exercise nor dieting.

Healthy nutrition is important after smartlipo

The goal of liposculpture is to reveal the original musculoskeletal shape of the body. Good nutrition and exercise are essential to maintain that goal.

Smartlipoo and dieting

+2

It is always good to stay in shape after surgery.  Diet and exercise to maintain results or to lose more weight if you are overweight is a good thing.
