Maintaining Results After Liposuction

January 21, 2014

While it is true that liposuction removes a large portion of the fat cells in the body area that is treated, some fat cells are always left behind. It would be completely impropoer technique for a plastic surgeon to remove all the fat cells since this would inevitably lead to an unnatural look with contour irregularities. The idea is to remove the right amount of fat cells that brings the body region to be treated by liposuction into proper proportion with the rest of the body. The fat cells that are left behind will behave normally in that if a patient eats a poor diet or cuts back on exercise, these fat cells will enlarge and the appearance will be that of weight gain in those areas. The overall message is that liposuction results need to be maintained by a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
