Undergoing a plastic surgery procedure can be an excellent way to help someone get themselves into better shape. Especially body contouring procedures like liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, or non-surgical fat reduction with SculpSure®. However, getting trim and staying trim in the years following plastic surgery are very different challenges. This is why it’s very common for patients to hire a personal trainer after plastic surgery.
I often speak to people who are interested in plastic surgery to help achieve a more trim and healthy-looking physique. In many cases, stubborn, diet-resistant fat and/or loose skin can result from weight fluctuation, pregnancy, gravity, or natural aging over time. Even people who are careful about eating right and exercising regularly may not be able to prevent these aesthetic imperfections, no matter how hard they work. In these cases, plastic surgery can be incredibly helpful.
However plastic surgery results, even the best ones, are not meant to last forever. And making unhealthy lifestyle choices can negatively affect or even negate the results achieved with a cosmetic procedure. This is where a personal trainer can help. A personal trainer can help keep people in shape after plastic surgery, and instill healthy, productive lifestyle habits that can last a lifetime. In addition to helping to develop and maintain an exercise regimen, this can also include nutritional advice and help making gradual, positive changes to a person’s diet and other important lifestyle factors.
Together with this new healthy lifestyle and exercise plan, people who have undergone body contouring surgery should have a much easier time making the results of their surgery last as long as possible. For some, prolonging the results of a cosmetic procedure can be motivation enough to make healthier choices in the years following surgery. But extra motivation and assistance can also be extremely helpful.
Another important factor to consider is that in addition to helping a person look their best, a personal trainer can also help actually improve their overall health and wellness. I often say that looking good and feeling good go hand in hand, and I do believe that finding the right personal trainer can be an integral part of getting healthy and keeping the body in shape, both inside and outside.
I like to think of working with a personal trainer as just one more way to accentuate and prolong the effects of plastic surgery.
