From the Desk of Dr. Farzad R. Nahai: How Long Liposuction Results Last
Liposuction is consistently one of the top, if not the number one, most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States year after year (according to ASAPS statistics). It is often performed as a stand alone procedure or as a procedure done in combination with other procedures (such as a tummy tuck or with a breast procedure for example). I am often asked what happens to the areas on the body where liposuction has been performed, specifically regarding whether patients can expect to gain weight in the future. This is what I tell my patients; there is a finite number of fat cells in the body and if patients maintain proper diet and exercise, the areas where liposuction was performed will stay the same. With weight gain, other areas of the body will gain disproportionately more than the areas that had liposuction. So it is really important after liposuction or any form of body contouring to maintain good diet and exercise habits in order to maintain the results. If you do that, you will enjoy liposuction results for a very long time.
