Maintaining Your Body Contouring Results: Tips for Long-Term Success

July 15, 2023

Joining the over 15 million other plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures that take place in the United States every year can feel like a great thing. Being able to undertake an endeavor just for you, helping you return or bolster your confidence, is what cosmetic procedures are all about. However, though the procedure is over, the process is not. If you’ve recently undergone or are about to go through a body contouring procedure, you’ve got to know how to maintain your results well into the future. If you’re wondering how to best prolong the effects of your body contouring procedure, then keep reading for the helpful tips compiled by the team at Body By Ravi. 

Maintain A Diet And Exercise Regimen 

You may have gotten help to achieve the body of your dreams, but now you have to do the work in keeping it. Though there are many body contouring procedures, generally speaking, they all tighten the body by helping remove excess fat and skin. However, the procedures are not a permanent cork, blockading any further development of fat or stretching of the skin. Without a diet and exercise regimen, you could possibly gain enough fat to restretch the skin, potentially undoing the procedure you received in the first place. The diet and exercise plan does not have to be a strict one, but rather one of maintenance. 


A good course of action could be to monitor your weight through weekly or biweekly weigh-ins that can help you track your body weight. Keep in mind that if you do choose to exercise through resistance training, you may gain weight through muscle which is denser than fat. So less muscle gain would account for more weight on the scale but provide less threat to your skin overstretching.
