This is a question that is asked often. It is always better to loose weight before a procedure including liposuction.
yyou're much better losing weight before your liposuction as this will give you a better result. However it is not critical and you need to work around what's right for you.
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided
information as well.. This is the surgical
procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most
performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order
to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It
can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin,
abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small
incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied,
it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After
liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months
after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment
for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at
least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many
time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain.
Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an
accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also
really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery,
that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your
body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use
compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure
and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing
it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on
your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult
with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than
fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed
performing a thigh lift…
Generally, I recommend for patients to be as close to ideal body weight as possible prior to liposuction. I suggest a formal consultation with a VASER HI DEF body shaping physician who can contour and shape while also using fat to lift and sculpt. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- I suggest you do the liposuction first.
- I also suggest you discuss it with your surgeon.
- If you lose a few pounds after liposuction and keep them off, the fat will not return anywhere in the body.
- Please be aware that the 'reset' is selling you a lot of supplements you probably don't need and a diet -
- Short term diets, especially if very low calorie, do not lead to long term weight loss and can lead to eating disorders -
- So if it seems too aggressive, find a different approach.
Always see a Board

It's best to do lipo at your stable weight. So, if you are at your baseline weight, it's best to do lipo before doing a program to "lean down". If you are heavier than typical, though, do the exercise program first to get down to your usual baseline.
It's best that you are at your ideal weight before proceeding with surgery. I would wait until after to do the surgery but depending where you are at it might be ok after. It's best discussed directly with your surgeon.
