Is Liposuction Really Permanent?
Posted October 11, 2017 in Liposuction
Candidates for liposuction frequently wonder whether they can trust the claim that liposuction results are permanent. Is this procedure something that can genuinely improve your body contours and eliminate unwanted fat forever? The truthful answer is indeed YES, but it is up to the patient to maintain his or her post-liposuction weight to be able to enjoy the results through the coming years.
How Liposuction Permanently Gets Rid of Fat
Liposuction with MagicSurgeon Dr. Palladino is a careful sculpting and etching procedure to remove fat and refine your body shape. MagicSurgeon will place incisions in strategic locations and insert a thin, hollow tube through the incisions into the fatty tissue. He will then artistically extract some of the fat cells from your body using suction technology. These fat cells will never be a part of your body again, and the amount of fat you have in your body will be reduced.
Will Your Body Contours Be Permanently Slimmer?
Liposuction permanently removes excess fat and makes your body contours slimmer. However, no surgery, technique, or treatment that can prevent you from gaining weight in the future. Therefore, even though liposuction permanently eliminates fat, you can still gain weight. A small amount of weight gain (e.g. five pounds) is not likely to affect your results by a significant amount. All that is likely to happen is that your existing fat cells will grow slightly in size, and your contours will generally remain the same.
A more considerable amount of weight gain could lead to an increase in fat in all areas of your body, including the areas that were treated with liposuction. However, because these areas are now smaller due to liposuction, fat accumulation in these areas will likely be less than in untreated areas. Thus, even with weight gain, you may still look better than you would have if you had not undergone liposuction.
What to Do to Maintain Your Results
When it comes to body sculpting, maintenance and prevention of weight gain are usually much more effective than trying to improve your body shape with weight loss. After all, you chose to undergo liposuction in the first place because you were unsuccessful in losing weight through diet and exercise. Liposuction gives you the means to turn the tide from an uphill battle to smooth sailing.
Once you have undergone liposuction, you are in the perfect position to maintain your new figure. If you adopt a healthy lifestyle and avoid weight gain or pregnancy, you can help your body to maintain its new smaller size. Regular exercise and a healthy diet can help you prevent future weight gain so that your results can last forever.
