How I Lost 40 pounds and 6 Dress Sizes in Six Weeks

I am a CosmetiCare Ambassador

It had been a year that I was on the fence about whether or not to have liposuction done at CosmetiCare. I had already tried every diet available, and although liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, I felt that it would be the best way to attempt to get my pre-baby body back.

I ended up making the final decision to have liposuction with Dr. Champion at the end of December. Dr. Champion did a fantastic job perfectly sculpting my figure to even better than it was before giving birth to my son. She removed nine pounds of fat and sculpted my body during the surgery, but it was what I did following the surgery that gave me the optimal results.

Before going in for the surgery, I had committed to taking better care of myself after the surgery, especially ensuring that I was eating well. After the surgery, I kept myself on a very strict diet. I cut out all carbohydrates, dairy, sugar, and alcohol. I focused on eating as much protein as possible and drinking a lot of water every day. It was not an easy adjustment, but I knew it was a lifestyle change that I needed to make.

I was able to stick to my diet, and I lost 40 pounds (49 if you count the 9 pounds Dr. Champion removed) and six dress sizes in six weeks – and I have been able to keep the weight off. As my appetite started to grow after recovering from my surgery at about six weeks, I began intermittent fasting and exercising daily. With the fasting, I have had an increase in energy, and I feel like a teenager again. I learned how powerful it could be when you fuel your body with healthy foods and how you’ll get to reap the benefits by having a beautiful figure.

Getting liposuction at CosmetiCare changed my life. If I had just lost the weight on my own without liposuction, I would have been thinner, but I wouldn’t have this beautifully contoured body that I currently have today. If you want to get your pre-baby body back, I recommend going in for a consultation at CosmetiCare. They will personally help you to decide what surgery is best for you to achieve your goal and feel good in your skin again.

Again, I want to stress that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure.
