Are Liposuction Results Permanent?
This is a great question that is frequently asked by men and women interested in this popular fat removal treatment. In short, the answer is yes. However, this is only true if you maintain a nutritious, well-balanced diet and overall healthy lifestyle following liposuction. During the procedure, fatty tissues are disrupted and extracted from the targeted region, leaving behind a significantly smaller number of fat cells in the treatment area. These residual fat cells will not grow in quantity, so as long as your weight remains relatively stable, the liposuction results attained can be permanent. That said, in the event you do gain weight, the remaining cells will grow bigger in size to store extra fat, therefore affecting your results. Conversely, the leftover fat cells will shrink in size if you happen to lose weight after the procedure.
At Art Plastic Surgery, Dr. Luis A. Zapiach and Dr. John T. Cozzone employ VASER® liposuction and SmartLipo™, both of which offer unique benefits to qualified individuals.
