There are reasons why liposuction has become so popular in a very short period of time. You can achieve the desired shape of your body within no time, as through liposuction you can get quick results.
Liposuction is not only opted by people who are over weighted, but also popular in between people who are very active but for some reason, they are unable to get rid of accumulated fat from certain areas of their body, even after following diet plans and working out regularly.
Even though liposuction surgery has benefited a lot of people, but for every new patient who wants to undergo this surgery has common questions regarding the procedure, which could be “will liposuction remove the fat permanently or can the fat return after the surgery”
Will liposuction remove the fat permanently?
No matter what technique your cosmetic surgeon opt for your liposuction, the only results your cosmetic surgeon will target is to remove fat cells from all the unresponsive pockets of fat cells, permanently.
And yes, through liposuction surgery fat cells are permanently removed.
Can fat return after the liposuction surgery?
Post liposuction treatment if the patient follows all the instruction provided by your cosmetic surgeon, chances are next to nil that your fat will return.
But in case, if you are a bit sloppy in maintaining the diet plan and workout suggested by your cosmetic surgeon chances are that fat cells can redevelop, but results from liposuction surgery will be visible, as new fat cells are likely to develop throughout the body.
So you might not see a massive difference after surgery but, your body overall shape will improve after you opt for a liposuction surgery, then to people who do not opt for the surgery.
Let’s understand returning of fat cells after the liposuction treatment through an example:
Suppose ‘A’ is our patient.
Weight before surgery 100 KG
Fat cells removed from body 10Kg
New weight post-surgery of A is 90 KG
Now, if ‘A’ gains 6 Kg weight post liposuction surgery than the new fat cells will grow in different areas of the body and will attain a great body shape.
But in case, if ‘A’ gains 20% weight of new body weight, which will be 18 Kg post liposuction surgery, chances are that ‘A’ will not attain very good results post-surgery.
How to stop the fat cell from redeveloping after liposuction surgery?
The best ways to retain results attained post-surgery are:
- Opt for a healthy lifestyle
- Follow all the post-surgery precautions given by your cosmetic surgeon
- Increase protein and healthy carbohydrate intake and reduce caloric consumption
- Eat small meals throughout the day instead of eating big meals and never skip your meals as scheduled
- Drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated
- Workout regularly
Thus for good results after liposuction surgery you need to follow all the post-surgery instructions given by your cosmetic surgeon and fat cells will never return to areas where the liposuction procedure was conducted.
