Is the fat removal from liposuction long-lasting?


Have you wondered how to get rid of stubborn areas of fat?

Typically, when you gain weight, fat cells within your body undergo physical expansion in size and volume. This process is dictated by multiple factors, such as gender, genetics, age, race, etc. After puberty, we do not generate many new fat cells. Thus, the fat cells removed by liposuction will not be replaced, and if your weight is stable, the results can be long-lasting. Should you gain weight, the remaining fat cells within the liposuctioned area can still expand to some degree. However, this will not be as noticeable as expansion of the fat in areas that were not liposuctioned. So, even if you have stubborn areas of fat that has not responded to diet and exercise, you may be able to get rid of that fat forever, if you maintain a stable weight post-surgery.


Many families experience the same characteristic fat deposits in the tummy, under arms, under the chin, in the thighs, buttocks, back or calf, which may diminish some with exercise and diet, but never go away to the extent the person wants. Liposuction is a great solution for people frustrated by these stubborn fat deposits.
