Will The Fat Come Back After Liposuction?

We have performed countless liposuction sessions at Chelsea Cosmetics, as this popular surgical procedure is often requested by those looking to target stubborn areas that are not responding to various lifestyle improvements. One question that we get asked a lot by those considering liposuction, however, is will the fat come back after a liposuction procedure?

While liposuction helps to contour the body, it is not a method for weight loss. The procedure will help you to lose weight but is used to assist healthy weight loss techniques.

Read on for a greater understanding of the liposuction procedure and what it involves, as well as the answer to whether or not the fat will return.

The Important Things to Know About Liposuction and Fat Removal

The liposuction procedure removes fat and fat cells from troublesome areas all over the body. Once removed, these fat cells will not return – however – new fat cells can return. It is for this reason that we strongly recommend a healthy diet and active lifestyle post-procedure to maintain your new look.

Patients gaining a small amount of weight will experience an increase of the size of other parts of the body and to a lesser extent in the liposuction area. Patients put on 10% or more of their body weight will experience fat cells showing in all areas of the body, including treated areas.

The downtime of roughly one to two weeks that follows liposuction is based on the amount of fat removed, and while it is only day surgery that is required, you will need a family member or friend to bring you home and act as a carer for the first few days.
