I recently read some comments by a Dr. Adam Howawy. His practice is in Princeton N.J. He does his cosmetic procedures and then tries to engage patients into adopting a healthier lifestyle. This will involve diet and exercise counseling – I guess it goes to the heart of Cosmetic Surgery – how we want to look better – more youthful – healthier.

 Many of my patients ask me about weight loss and in the end we want our patients to be at their ideal weight but many are not. I have 4 simple principles – you have to be motivated; it is a lifestyle change – set a goal, and finally incorporate some form if exercise. A survey of hundreds of liposuction patients done in 2004 came to the conclusion that successful body contouring requires a patient to enbrace a healthy lifestyle.
