How Long Does Liposuction Last?

We all know liposuction is a great solution for those who are interested in seeing concentrated areas of fat disappear. Liposuction is especially useful when you are already working out or eating healthy but can’t seem to lose that one problem area of fat, no matter how hard you try. Whether it is your tummy, back, arms, thighs, or another problem area, we all have a part on our body which seems to stubbornly hold onto weight, no matter how much we work out or amend our lifestyle. What keeps many people from getting liposuction is the fear that it will be a waste of money because they have heard the results don’t last long, and that fat tissue eventually returns.

Despite the misconceptions, the truth is this: the effects of liposuction can be permanent, but only if you work to keep them that way. If you get liposuction and think you now have a free pass to giving up working out and eating healthy, then the fat will obviously return. There is no magic trick in the world of plastic surgery that will allow you to eat whatever you want and never gain a pound–the lucky few who can afford that simply have a naturally fast-acting metabolism.

As long as you maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle after your liposuction procedure, your results should remain permanent. Liposuction involves remove excess fat from a particular region, which means a very small percentage of fat cells will remain. If you continue a healthy lifestyle, your fat cells will shrink even more. If you do not, instead of multiplying they will simply expand, thus undoing the work of liposuction.
