Ways to Prepare for Your Liposuction

by Kevin Smith Author

Want to achieve a beach body through surgery? Any plastic surgeon in Tacoma, WA will recommend trying liposuction. This method adds contour to your body and effectively gets rid of extra fat deposits in the buttocks, thighs, hips, and other parts. It's done by inserting a needle that extracts fat.


Pair lipo with diet and exercise, and you'll soon achieve your goal. Here's how to prepare for it.


Consult Your Surgeon

Before a procedure, your board-certified surgeon will ask about your health status, medical or surgical history, and your expectations. Don't omit relevant details during the consultation. Your information will be used to properly prepare you for any risk factors.


To ensure the success of the entire process, the surgeon will check your BMI. Those who are overweight will undergo a nutrition management program because one should be no more than 15 lbs above their target weight. The program may last for 3 months to give enough time to heal from the procedure.


Stop Smoking and Drinking

To get your body ready, refrain from smoking at least 2 months before your procedure. Otherwise, it will reduce blood flow and affect your recovery. Alcohol consumption is also discouraged at least 2 days before the surgery as it can thin your blood, prolong your healing, and make you prone to bruising.


Avoid Certain Medications

Certain medicines and supplements can interrupt your the body's normal blood clotting process. Medications like ibuprofen, aspirin, vitamin E, birth control, dietary add-ons, and herbal therapies aren't allowed unless your surgeon tells you otherwise.


Dos and Don'ts

A few days before your appointment, don't shave the hair around the surgical site to stop post-surgery ingrown hairs that are prone to infection. Don't eat or drink anything the previous night to prevent vomiting while under anesthesia or having your procedure rescheduled.


On the day of your surgery, wear comfortable clothing. Remove any makeup, nail polish, false nails, contact lenses, hairpins, jewelry, and other items on you. You may also want to bring the following:

        Antibacterial soap

        Robe or pajamas

        Low sodium snacks


        Magazines or movies to keep you occupied while waiting


To have a successful procedure, follow the recommendations and steps above. You are attending plastic surgeon in Tacoma, WA will guide you throughout your preparation.
