How Long Do Liposuction Results Last?
Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he discusses how to ensure the longevity of your liposuction treatment.
So the results from liposuction really depend upon lifestyle. For patients that come in are trying to get rid of unwanted fat because they have trouble maintaining their weight, they’re probably going to gain the weight back. We spend a lot of time discussing with the patient, both pre and post operatively, that they need to adjust their lifestyle to maintain a healthy weight.
If the weight stays healthy, they’re not going to gain the fat back. Generally patients always ask, well, will I get the fat somewhere else? And when we remove fat cells from an area of the body, we remove fat cells that are never going to come back. But the fat cells that remain there may get fuller with weight gain. So it’s very important that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep away fat from unwanted areas.
