Patients seeking assistance with weight loss can find a solution with liposuction treatment. Liposuction can remove fat cells from the abdomen, legs, arms, neck, or face to reshape your body. Liposuction can help a patient lose weight, but to get the health benefits of weight loss, a patient may need to make lifestyle adjustments. Dr. Leslie Smith, a cosmetic surgeon serving Minneapolis, discusses the role of liposuction in overall wellness improvement.
Triglycerides are a type of fat that can enter your bloodstream when there is excess fat in the body. These cells can then contribute to major health problems such as heart disease. Liposuction can remove excess fat from the body, though triglyceride counts will remain unaffected for healthy patients after this procedure. Some patients who remove a large amount of fat through liposuction can see lower triglycerides in their bloodstream. Though this is not enough to impact risk factors for heart disease or other issues, liposuction can be the first step to improved overall patient health.
A major part of forming a healthy lifestyle is getting an appropriate amount of exercise. Doctors usually recommend at least 30 minutes of activity five days per week. Walking, running, swimming, and cycling are good examples of exercise that can strengthen your muscles and keep the rest of your body healthy. Exercise routines can also help patients maintain their body shape after liposuction treatment. It can also lower your risk of heart disease or other health problems that are not resolved with liposuction.
Certain workouts can also tone and tighten skin after a liposuction procedure. You will need to wait until your doctor confirms it is safe to do these exercises after this procedure. With these goals in mind, you can feel motivated to exercise more and contribute to improved full-body wellness.
Liposuction can help you achieve your aesthetic goals by sculpting your body the way you want it. When you feel comfortable with the way you look, your confidence in your appearance can carry over to other aspects of your life. A boost of self-esteem can improve your mood and increase your desire to tackle other wellness goals. You can be motivated to improve your diet, foster more social connections, and enrich your mental health. Liposuction can be a good start, but reaching overall wellness takes additional effort from a patient.
