BODY CONTOURING/ SCULPTING

PRE & AFTERCARE

PRE-CARE

It  is  ESSENTIAL  that  you  follow  these  instructions  for  optimal  results  from the treatments!! 

 

 

WEEK PRIOR TO TREATMENT IF POSSIBLE- IF NOT, DAYS PRIOR: 

 

  • Liberal water intake: More than 32 ounces of water per day

  • OK to take ALL medications, even diuretics (substance that increases flow of urine) 

  • DO NOT BINGE EAT! 

  • DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE! 

 

 

DAY OF TREATMENT- PRIOR TO TREATMENT: 

 

  • Drink 24 ounces of water (coffee, tea, cola DOES NOT count as water!) 

  • HOLD diuretics until day after (if applicable) 

  • Take normal medications, but DO NOT take diuretics 

  • Do not drink caffeine 3-4 hours prior to treatment 

  • Do not have a heavy meal prior to your treatment. Not eating will make your body go into starvation mode and your treatment results will not be as significant

AFTERCARE

IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE:


● YOU MUST PARTICIPATE IN AEROBIC EXERCISE​ - i.e Walk or run on the treadmill or go for
a walk outside, cycle, or elliptical exercise. The longer the exercise, the more likely it is that the fat
that was mobilized into the circulatory system will leave the body! Drink another 36 ounces of water after hard effort (exercise)


30 minutes exercise = 40-60% of fat metabolized = FAIR results
45 minutes exercise = 60-80% of fat metabolized = GOOD results
60 minutes exercise = 80-100% of fat metabolized= EXCELLENT results


● DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL and DO NOT BINGE EAT!! You may experience hunger
cravings because a lot of fat has been metabolized and your body is not used to that! Fight the hunger pains (if any) and stick to good eating habits

 


DAY AFTER TREATMENT:


● Continue liberal water intake (more than 32 ounces of water per day)
● Resume diuretics (if applicable)
● Watch your appetite as it may be increased- DO NOT increase normal calorie intake

● Exercise if possible- remember a large amount of fat has been dumped into the
circulatory system and it’s important to burn all that you can to prevent it from restoring


PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE LOST A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF FAT FROM ONE AREA OF YOUR BODY BUT THE WEIGHT LOSS CAN BE REVERSED BY:


● DRINKING ALCOHOL
● BINGE EATING (eat 4-6 meals daily and spread out your calorie intake)

● EATING TOO MUCH CARBOHYDRATES (avoid eating too much carbohydrates like wheat and flour, foods high in gluten, sugar etc.)​
