Will exercising improve my results?

Exercise after Liposuction and body lift
Thanks for your question. Liposuction permanently removes excess fat and a lower body lift removes excess skin. Exercise goes hand in hand with these cosmetic surgery procedures. An exercise routine and good eating habits will certainly improve your results. Just check with your plastic surgeon as to when your are allowed to exercise and what, if any, restrictions you have.
Lower body lift - when to exercise?
Thank you for asking about your lower body lift.
- You need to be guided by your own surgeon -
- But in general, walking is fine the first month after a body lift.
- Then non-impact exercise is ok to start - such as gentle stretches, swimming, dance.
- But impact - running, jumping - is not done for 6 - 8 weeks
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
