3 Ways To Get Tighter Skin After Having Lipo

by for content

Liposuction provides you with a great way to get rid of excess fat around your midsection, arms, thighs, and buttocks. While it is effective and provides fast results, it is also known to cause loose skin. Here are some ways to tighten your skin after having liposuction. 

Start Exercising

One of the best things you can do to help improve your loose skin and tighten it up after liposuction is to exercise more. This is recommended to anyone who loses a lot of weight in a short period of time, whether through traditional methods or liposuction. It is likely that you already had some loose skin if you were losing weight prior to completing the body makeover with liposuction. Exercise should combine cardio and strength training. With resistance and weight training, you are able to start improving your muscle strength with lean muscles, while the tissue that helps keep your skin up will begin to tighten. Make sure you have gotten permission from your doctor to start exercising and have waited the recommended amount of time after the liposuction procedure. For further assistance, contact local professionals, such as those from Dr. Vitkin's Weight Loss Clinic.

Get a Massage

Believe it or not, some massages can also help to gradually tighten your skin. While those won't help severely loose skin, you can add it to these other methods and see some excellent results. Speak to a local massage therapist about the issues you are having and they will choose the right massage methods for the loose skin. When you get the massage, you have better blood circulation in the skin, which may start to liven and tighten it up. It is also good to do if you had liposuction but haven't yet noticed loose skin, as it may help prevent it.  

Consider Cosmetic Procedures

There are surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can help remove excess skin and tighten the skin you have. If you don't want to go through an invasive surgical procedure to remove the loose skin, try skin tightening treatment. This is a cosmetic procedure that uses lasers instead of scalpels and needles. Radio waves will penetrate the skin and start tightening it from the inside-out. For more serious loose skin problems, you may need to have the excess skin removed, then suture it. This will leave behind a scar, but if you lost a large amount of weight through weight loss and liposuction, it may be the best method.
