Cosmetic Surgery Enquiry

The results of liposuction are permanent in the sense that the fat cells that are removed will not grow back. However, this does not mean that you will not develop new fat cells in the same area if you put on weight after surgery.

Prolonging Liposuction Results

The best way to maintain the results of your liposuction is to live a healthy lifestyle. This means being physically active and eating a healthy diet. You do not need to cut out all fat and completely avoid foods that you enjoy to maintain a healthy weight. However, you should try to reduce the amount of saturated fats and calories that you consume. You should also try to do at least thirty minutes of moderate physical activity a minimum of five times a week. This will help to keep your body healthy and tone the muscles under your skin making the results of your liposuction more defined.

Liposuction Results and Weight Gain

If you put on a large amount of weight after having had liposuction, you will put fat on. Although the fat is more likely to be distributed evenly across your body, rapid weight gain may cause the treatment area to become emphasised once more. If you notice that you have started to gain more weight than you would like to after your surgery, you should try to pin- point the reason why you are gaining weight so that you can tackle any issues you may have.

Liposuction Results and Aging

As you age your body naturally, changes accumulating fat in certain areas such as the neck, abdomen, and arms. Whilst liposuction can remove fat making you appear more youthful, it cannot prevent aging from forming new fat cells in the same area. The only way to limit the effects of aging on your body is to live a healthy lifestyle, which can help you to reduce the amount of fat caused by aging and keep your skin looking more youthful.

Liposuction Results after Pregnancy

Although no surgeon will perform liposuction on you if you are pregnant, you may become pregnant after having liposuction. This can be worrying when it comes to your figure, as pregnancy is known to make you gain weight. You should not try to restrict your diet during pregnancy to counter balance the weight gain as this can have a severe effect on the health of you and your child.

Weight gain during pregnancy is a natural part of becoming a mother and helps your body adapt to the child within you. This can have an effect on the results of your liposuction. If you maintain a healthy diet and participate in physical activity after the birth of your child, you should regain your post- liposuction body. You should consult a professional before doing this to ensure that it does not have a negative impact on your health.

Permanent Results of Liposuction

Although liposuction will not prevent you from putting more fat on if you do live a healthy lifestyle there are permanent benefits of liposuction. For example, liposuction can permanently change the way that your body distributes fat. This means that whereas before your treatment fat may have been put on one particular area of your body, after liposuction treatment it will be distributed more evenly over your entire body. This means that if you gain weight the overall shape of your body is unlikely to change but the whole of your body is likely to become larger.
