What Should I Do To Prepare For A Body Contouring Treatment?

Posted September 09, 2014 in CoolSculpting®, EMSCULPT®, by Dr. Fiorillo

Whether you choose an intensive all over body contouring surgery, or non-invasive CoolSculpting or Emsculpting, you should be fully prepared, before starting the procedure(s).

First, you should be at your target weight. You cannot use body contouring as a solution to obesity or a means of losing extra fat. You cannot continue significant weight loss after your surgery or you will lose the results of the surgery.

Next, establish healthy habits before the surgery and be committed to keeping them after. A “new” body will not be the entire motivation for dieting and exercise, especially if you have food addictions, carb addictions or tend to do emotional eating. These habits after body contouring treatments, can reverse the benefits of the treatments. Also, healthy eating and exercise habits go a long way in reducing or eliminating the possibility of complications due to the procedures and help a lot in improving recovery time. Some people have food prepared and ready for their post-operative recovery time.

Third, be sure to have your support team lined up, ready and aware of your schedule and your needs. You will need a ride home, babysitter or childcare, someone to run errands or drive you or just be there for you, if you have discomfort. Be sure to inform your employer, and/or clients, and/or employees of your time off.

Finally, ask questions. Don’t hold back. You need to be the least stressed possible, so questions answered is the best way to have stress reduced upon arrival for your procedures.
