Long-Term Effects of Liposuction

Liposuction can be a long-term surgery, with no need for any additional treatments so long as you are aware of how to maintain your new body shape.  Liposuction is not a real weight loss solution, and without the right diet or amount of exercise, the areas treated can quickly put the weight back on.  Your body contains a certain amount of fat cells, and these expand or retract according to the amount of fat within the body.  Liposuction does eliminate a number of fat cells permanently, these cells cannot regenerate and as a result the area being treated will always have less potential problematic cells.  However, the cells that are left can merely enlarge, incorporating fat so that weight is regained.  Your surgeon cannot extract all the fat cells from a certain area as the body needs a certain amount to survive, thus without proper adherence to your surgeons’ advice you will gain weight after surgery.

Liposuction can make fat distribution occur at a more even rate, however, with the fat cells in affected areas finding it harder to absorb excess fat after treatment.  If you put on a small amount of weight after your surgery it is more likely to be better spread out, ensuring no specific problem areas. Certain types of liposuctions have been reported to eliminate cellulite and help skin to regain elasticity.  This, so long as you maintain your shape, will be a permanent change to your body. 

Liposuction, essentially, is a cosmetic surgery to enhance your body to make it more attractive.  If you have had long term problems with your body then it is likely to restore your confidence and allow you to participate in activities which you might otherwise have avoided, such as swimming.  This can lead to serious improvement within your state of mind as well as the appearance of your body.
