Avoid Leaving Out the Details

If you’re considering liposuction, one thing you should definitely keep in mind is how important it is to communicate clearly with your surgeon. Your surgeons are big believers in this, and for good reason! By sharing your aesthetic goals, expectations, and overall health with your surgeon, they can create a customized plan that’s just right for you. Whether you have specific concerns or unique health considerations, providing as much detail as possible will help ensure that you get the results you’re looking for. So don’t be shy – speak up and let your surgeon know what you want!

Avoid Certain Medications, Supplements, Vitamins, and Smoking

It’s important to keep in mind that being well-prepared for a surgical procedure, such as liposuction, goes beyond simply communicating with your healthcare provider. Proper preparation also involves taking into account substances that can impact the surgical process. Specifically, before getting liposuction, it’s crucial to avoid certain medications, supplements, and vitamins that might increase the risk of complications. For instance, blood-thinning medications, including aspirin, can heighten the chances of excessive bleeding during surgery. Similarly, certain supplements and vitamins, such as vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, can also increase the risk of bleeding.

It’s not just medication that can have an impact on the success of the surgery, however. Smoking is also strongly discouraged, as it can impair blood circulation and delay the healing process. This is because smoking causes narrowing of the blood vessels, which can reduce blood flow to the surgical site and slow the body’s natural healing process.

At the end of the day, your safety is our top priority. That’s why we strongly recommend a thorough review of all medications, supplements, and vitamins you’re currently taking, as well as any lifestyle choices that might impact the surgery. By doing so, we can help ensure that you have the best possible outcome from your liposuction procedure.

Avoid Weight Fluctuations

It is important to maintain a stable weight before the procedure. In fact, it is critical for both your health and the optimal results of the procedure. We advise against crash diets and sudden weight fluctuations as they can negatively impact the body’s balance, which can ultimately affect the outcome of the surgery.

To achieve the best possible results, it is essential that you maintain a healthy and well-balanced diet leading up to your liposuction procedure. This means consuming a variety of nutritious foods that provide your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its best. Additionally, maintaining a stable weight promotes a smoother surgical process, reduces the risk of complications, and contributes to a more predictable and satisfying aesthetic outcome.

Dr. Lee and Dr. Tantillo further emphasize that liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, and it is crucial to maintain a healthy weight after the procedure as well. By adopting healthy habits such as regular exercise and a nutritious diet, you can help ensure that the results of your liposuction procedure are long-lasting and satisfying.
