Liposuction is an effective way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Bottger regularly performs liposuction on patients in the Philadelphia area to help them achieve the toned, sculpted body they desire. In order to maintain your results for many years, it is important to understand how liposuction affects your fat cells. Once fat cells are removed by liposuction, they will never return. However, your remaining fat cells can still expand in size if you gain weight. This may result in accumulations of fat deposits in parts of your body which never previously stored fat, creating an unbalanced body contour. In order to maintain your results long term, you will need to live a healthy lifestyle. An exercise regimen including at least 30 minutes of cardio exercises 3 days a week should be the bare minimum. In addition, you should eat a healthy diet and be careful of the calories you consume on a daily basis. By getting liposuction, you are making a considerable investment in your appearance. You may as well make the continued effort to maintain your newly sculpted body contour after your procedure. Please contact Dr. David Bottger today to schedule your initial liposuction consultation.
