Your Guide to Pre-Holiday Season Liposuction

ben-lee-lipoThe cold season is the best time to get cosmetic procedures, including liposuction. One good reason is the chilly weather is an excellent excuse to bundle up with layers of clothes to conceal any scars, bruises, and swellings. Unfortunately, getting liposuction in time for Thanksgiving may be a bit late, as the recovery period requires at least two weeks.

However, if you are planning to strut your newly sculpted figure during the Yuletide festivities, now is the time to schedule a liposuction appointment with Dr. Ben Lee. Doing so will give you enough time to consult with him, complete the necessary tests, and prepare yourself for this minimally invasive procedure.

Once you have scheduled a date for your liposuction, the next question you’ll probably ask yourself is ‘What now?’

Preparing for Pre-Holiday Season Liposuction

For some patients, preparing for liposuction is stressful. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Keep in mind the following tips to ensure that you won’t encounter any delays or setbacks on your scheduled liposuction.

Lose Weight

As part of your preparation, Dr. Lee will ask you to go on a healthy diet and exercise to reach at least close to your ideal weight. The reason is you can achieve optimal results if you shed extra pounds before your liposuction.

With the Thanksgiving feast coming up, though, you might find it hard to resist sweet treats and calorie-laden dishes. Well, you don’t have to deprive yourself from the enormous gastronomic feasts you’re looking forward to. The tricks for sticking to your weight loss goals are to eat small meals spread throughout the day, drink plenty of water, moderate your sugar consumption, eat the right kinds of food, and never skip  your exercise routine.

Maintain Good Health

The cold weather can trigger certain illnesses, such as colds, flu and asthma, that could delay your liposuction. To avoid any delays, maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating right, exercising regularly, and keeping your body well hydrated.

Stop Smoking

Smoking affects your body’s ability to heal quickly. Therefore, it’s best to stop the habit in advance to reduce the risk of liposuction-related complications. Through this, your body will heal quickly, making you ready to show the new you this holiday season.

Completing the necessary preparations for your liposuction can increase the possibility of achieving your desired results in time for the Yuletide festivities. So what are you waiting for? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lee today.
