Slim Lipo is an effective fat cell removal technique that uses laser beams of high frequency to melt the fat. The results of Slim Lipo vary, but the body will look fitter and the skin will tighten. Post surgery care can help in achieving great results and avoiding complications; the effects of Slim Lipo can be maintained in the long run if you have a proper lifestyle.

Lifestyle Post Surgery

After the Slim Lipo procedure it is important that you follow the surgeon's recommendations, so that the wounds won't get infected or you suffer from other post surgery complications. The constrictive bandage should be worn for 2 or 3 days, and it shouldn't be removed. You will experience drainage and this is normal, as the not all the melted fat cells are extracted. Don't do any strenuous activities for 4 to 5 days and avoid exercising for 2 weeks. Brisk walking or light activities may be performed. After this period, you can start exercising, but limit yourself to light exercises. Gradually, you may introduce more difficult exercises.

Lifestyle and Maintenance after Slim Lipo

Even though Slim Lipo extracts fat cells, this doesn't mean that you won't deposit fat in the treated areas if you gain weight. The effects of Slim Lipo can be maintained if you lead a healthy lifestyle. This should include a harmonious diet and an exercise program.

Diet after Slim Lipo

A nutritionist can tell you what is a suitable diet adapted to your weight, height and lifestyle. Generally speaking, women require 2,000 calories per day and men need 2,500 calories. If you exercise or have an active life, you may require more calories, while if you have a sedentary lifestyle, the calorie requirement may be reduced. It is important that the diet is also balanced, so these calories should be from different sources including proteins, fibers and carbohydrates. When you eat more calories than you burn, you will gain fat and this will be distributed on your body, including the areas that have been treated with Slim Lipo. Aging will contribute to the slowing down of the metabolism, so the calorie requirements will need to be altered. Your nutritionist can inform you about these changes.

Exercise after Slim Lipo

As mentioned earlier, exercise is not recommended 2 weeks after Slim Lipo, to make sure that the incisions heal properly. However, after the healing period, you should exercise to maintain the effects. Exercising 3 times per week can keep you fit. Choosing an activity you like can guarantee that you will stick to your exercise plan. You may choose jogging, brisk walking, biking or swimming. Even playing with your kids can count as exercise. If you have some health problems that won't allow you to exercise, you can opt for walking. 50 minutes of walking per day can burn some calories and you will keep fit.

In addition to diet and exercising, you may also opt for slimming massages that can maintain the effects of Slim Lipo.
