Are Liposuction Results Permanent?
This is an excellent question that it asked quite frequently by women and men considering this popular fat reduction treatment. The short answer is yes. However, this is only the case if a healthy lifestyle is maintained following the liposuction procedure. During treatment, fat tissues are broken up and removed from the targeted region, leaving behind a small fraction of the total number of fat cells that were originally present in the area. Since the residual fat cells in the region will not multiply, the results attained with liposuction can be permanent, as long as you maintain a relatively stable weight. If you do happen to gain weight, the remaining fat cells will grow in size in order to accommodate additional fat, ultimately impacting your outcome. Contrarily, should you lose a significant amount of weight post-surgery, the leftover fat cells will diminish in size.
