[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic treatments performed in the US. It involves suctioning out diet and exercise-resistant fat from areas such as the abdomen, upper arms, back, thighs, and hips.
This popularity is attributed to the fact that liposuction is minimally invasive, its results start to become noticeable almost immediately, and the procedure simply works.
However, it is worth noting that liposuction is not an alternative to traditional weight loss solutions. It is recommended for removing pockets of fat that refuse to respond to diet and exercise. As such, it is not unusual to see even the fittest individuals going for liposuction.
Does Liposuction Remove Fat Permanently?
Despite the popularity associated with liposuction, many people still wonder if liposuction offers a permanent solution to the problem of stubborn fat deposits.
Although there are several liposuction techniques used by plastic surgeons, liposuction involves using hollow tubes and suctioning devices to suction out fat from a target area.
The results will be permanent since liposuction permanently removes fat cells from an area, and fat cells do not grow back in the area where liposuction has been done.
Can Fat Return After Liposuction?
Although liposuction permanently removes fat cells from a particular area, this does not in any way stop the body’s natural process of producing fat. Unfortunately, it is possible for fat to return after liposuction… if you allow it to come back. You must remember that fat is just storing extra calories.
Even after liposuction, as a way of preparing itself to survive in the event of starvation your body will continue converting the excess sugar into fat and storing it in other parts of the body (or in the remaining fat cells in the treatment area).
Therefore, it is essential to maintain your liposuction results after your treatment.
