Spring is a time to rejuvenate and renew. Warmer weather inspires us to get outdoors and engage in more physical activity, too. As we look in the mirror, we may notice a few extra pounds that need to come off before summer months and swim-suit season. We may say to ourselves, “it’s time to lose the jelly belly or spare tire.” Why? Because spring increases our desire to look and feel great.
If you are already hitting the gym or the hiking and biking trails, good for you! Keep it up. For many people, regardless of their physical activity, they may not be able to get rid of the extra flab and weight around the mid-section and waist. This can be a result of genetics, age, lifestyle changes, diet, medications, hormone shifts or due to pregnancy.
Liposuction is a great option to lose the extra “spring roll” around the tummy. By surgically removing the subcutaneous fat beneath the skin, lipo specialist can help you get a flat stomach before summer. However, researchers at University of San Paola found that exercise before and after the procedure will prolong the benefits and help you maintain your new shape in the long-run. In a study of 36 women who had liposuction to remove fat in their abdominal region, the women who participated in cardio activities, light weight lifting and exercise routines decreased their chances of gaining visceral and subcutaneous fat.
Fabiana Benatti, head researcher of the study encouraged exercise after liposuction to reap the long-term benefits.Tweet
