Does Liposuction Permanently Remove Fat?

Cellulite removal scheme on body girl.There are many different types of liposuction these days. Some of the most popular procedures include VASER LipoSelectionSmartLipo®, and GPS LipoControl. All of these options have something in common: they permanently remove unwanted body fat for long-lasting results. 

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction takes excess fat cells out of the treatment area using a thin tube called a cannula. Those fat cells are gone for good. Your body will not regrow them in response to surgery.

It works because we all have a relatively fixed number of fat cells in our bodies. These cells shrink and expand with weight fluctuations. However, it is unusual for their quantity to change.

Weight Gain After Liposuction

Liposuction is a reliable way to slim and shape your body. However, weight gain after the procedure can hurt your cosmetic results. As mentioned above, fat cells in and out of the treated area might grow.

In the case of considerable weight gain, it’s actually possible for brand new fat cells to develop. However, new fat cells usually appear evenly throughout the body. That means areas treated with liposuction will likely look better than if you never had the procedure in the first place. 

Maintaining Your Liposuction Results

Most patients enjoy their liposuction results for years to come. If you maintain a stable weight after your procedure, you don’t really need to worry about fat returning or appearing elsewhere.

Here are a few tips to help you keep your weight under control:

  • Eat nutritious foods
  • Watch your portion sizes
  • Stay hydrated
  • Exercise regularly
  • Get enough sleep
