Get liposuction, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. But what they didn’t tell you is that you could totally screw it up if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you really wanna get slim, sexy and safe results, pay attention to what not to do before liposuction.
Taking Secret Medication or Supplements
Secrets, secrets, they’re no fun…especially when they could cause serious problems during or after your liposuction appointment. For real, let your plastic surgeon know about any and all medications and supplements you’re currently taking, and listen to his advice about what to quit taking before lipo.
Yes, vitamins count as discloseable medications, people!
You’ve probably heard by now that lipo isn’t a realistic weight loss method, and neither is crash dieting. To get the best results from liposuction, set realistic diet and exercise goals and maintain a stable weight for a few months beforehand.
Staying on a weight-fluctuating rollercoaster and then starving yourself right before your procedure isn’t going to do you any good. Not only will you just gain all that weight back after lipo, but you’ll also be weak and unable to heal properly for lack of nutrients. You’re a smart cookie—so eat like one!
Driving Yourself to Surgery
Okay, Miss Daisy, you’re not superwoman and you do sometimes need to ask for help. Especially when it comes to driving yourself to and from a surgical procedure. Even though lipo is a relatively low-key surgery, you still shouldn’t be driving yourself home. Case closed, find a driver.
