Healthy Lifestyle Improves Plastic Surgery Results

A Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon is making it clear that what he does is only the beginning of your new and better body. The rest is up to you.

Dr. David Stoker of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates in Southern California is saying that people who try to get healthy before undergoing liposuction and stay healthy afterwards have the best long-term results.

He explains that a lifestyle of exercise and smart eating are the perfect fit for body contouring methods such as liposuction.

Liposuction is a procedure where fat is aspirated or suctioned through tiny incisions allowing the surgeon to contour areas of excess fat.

The procedure is very effective with high patient satisfaction.

This information is not new as these original findings were published in 2006 in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the premiere journal in the specialty, by the plastic surgery group at the University Texas Southwestern Medical Center .

The researchers found that success in body contouring surgery was heavily dependent on the patients embracing positive lifestyle habits of proper diet and exercise for long – term success.
