Is it good to work out before a lipo?

I will get a lipo in a few months and I was wondering if it's a good idea to work out before the intervention... I know that working out after is good but is it good to do it before AND after? I'm afraid that the muscles will transform into fat later if I stop (I don't plan to but we never know). Thank you!

Working out before liposuction is no problem, but more importantly, it is best to avoid large weight fluctuations so you can have a predictable, satisfactory outcome . . .

Working out would be fine prior to liposuction.

No specific advantage to working out before liposuction.

It's always a good idea to remain fit but pre liposuction workouts probably won't influence the performance of the procedure.
