How to Improve Your Figure Over Winter By Joseph M. Brown, MD, FACS on December 23, 2020

Winter is the best time to get plastic surgery for almost any part of your body. It's excellent to improve your figure over winter. Even minor operations like liposuction are best done over the winter months, as the timing allows you ample time to heal prior to slipping on your favorite swimsuit. However, that doesn’t mean the work is over. You’ll need to maintain your figure over winter if you want the chance to show off your results once summer rolls around. Your plastic surgeon Tampa is here for you.

Laser lip Tampa works by physically removing fat cells from your body. They can never grow back, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put weight on ever again. Rather than creating fat cells when we fail to balance our caloric intake, our body just enlarges the existing fat cells to accommodate the change. Regardless, failing to maintain a healthy regimen will eventually reverse your results, so it’s really important to establish regular lifestyle changes.

How to Improve Your Figure Over Winter

We all tend to struggle with our weight over the winter. It’s cold outside with more frequent weather events. There’s all that delicious holiday food, and there’s a strong instinct to just nestle down. However, there are a number of minor steps that you can take to stay on track. Using a calorie counter and drinking plenty of water are great ways to maintain balance during your recovery. Still, once your surgeon at Tampa Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery says it’s safe to resume normal activity you should add regular exercise to your routine to stay fit.

Find Indoor Activities

There are a lot of great exercises you can do in the comfort of your own home. A recorded HIIT workout is an easy way to combine cardio and body weight exercises for the most effect in a short period of time. However, when you aren’t feeling up to this more intense option, find something fun that gets your heart pumping. Dancing in your own living room to a high tempo song is a great way to get in your cardio while simply enjoying life. If you have access to a VR set-up, then VR boxing is another great tool in your arsenal that won’t even feel like a work out until it’s over.

Set a Schedule

You know yourself better than anyone. Think about the time of day where you feel most motivated and are most likely to commit to an activity. Then work it into your schedule every day with a corresponding alarm. You really only need to exercise a few times a week, but for most of us it’s actually easier to keep it up if it’s a part of our daily routine.

Enlist a Workout Buddy

Misery loves company, and if you aren’t a big fan of exercising, then bringing a friend or loved one along can really improve the experience. You’ll have the opportunity to push each other forward, while enjoying the company of a person you care about. It’s a win-win situation that will leave both of you feeling better about working out.

Keep it Simple

One of the biggest bonuses about exercising every day of the week is that you can complete your exercise needs in a short period of time. The average HIIT workout is only 20-30 minutes. And running a mile often takes less than half that time. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can go hog wild on the calories. You will definitely still need to track what you’re eating because 20 minutes of exercise probably doesn’t burn what you think it does.

Ultimately Be Creative and Try to Have Fun

There are so many ways you can stay physically active over the winter months in order to keep your figure. Go skiing, take a cycling class, or do yoga in the comfort of your own home. Just make sure you aren’t consuming more calories than you burn, and you’ll keep your results.
