Does liposuction permanently remove fat?

Liposuction Makes Sense

Liposuction (lipoplasty) is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 200,000 people have the surgery each year. The primary reason, by and large, is that it is a quick and safe way to remove unwanted body fat. Specifically fat that accumulates in areas that diet and exercise do not have much of an effect controlling. If you have areas of fat deposits around your tummy, thighs, hips, and back you undoubtedly feel uncomfortable in a swimsuit. This procedure allows a plastic surgeon to sculpt and contour a new and shapely figure. In a very short time, you will have the body that you formerly had, or always wanted to have.

Why fat collects in hard to lose areas?

There are many reasons why unwanted fat collects in “hard to lose” areas such as the abdomen, waist, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, neck, and back. Genetics play a role. DNA controls our body type to a large degree. Pregnancy can add weight to the tummy and thighs, and volume to the breasts. Weight gain and middle age spread are a natural result of aging.

The liposuction procedure

Liposuction  is a cosmetic procedure that is relatively simple yet yields remarkable results. Your surgeon will use a stainless steel straw-like tube in small incisions to remove excess fat that has built up between the skin and underlying muscle. The number of areas treated determines the complexity of the operation. After an evaluation by your surgeon, he or she will decide whether a general or local anesthetic will be used. On an average, it takes forty-five minutes per section being treated.

Is liposuction permanent?

After the liposuction operation you new contours will be essentially permanent. However, if you put on a significant amount of weight, fat will accumulate in other areas other than the treated spots. Liposuction removes fat cells and these cells do not ever come back. Gaining as much as ten pounds might possibly create asymmetry in your figure. Therefore, it is advisable to maintain your weight with a healthy lifestyle. If they haven’t been, exercise and proper nutrition should be incorporated into your daily routine. Before you start an exercise regimen, you need to consult with your health practitioner.
