Are Liposuction Results Permanent?

Posted on Apr 27, 2017 Liposuction

Liposuction is an excellent option for Philadelphia-area patients who are looking to remove stubborn deposits of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. We have seen so many patients who are thrilled with the results of their liposuction procedure.

It’s important to understand what you can expect after your procedure – specifically, how you can maintain your results. The effects of liposuction are long-lasting insofar as the fat cells reduced by the procedure never return. However, this doesn’t mean you can eat all you like or give up on exercise. It is still possible to expand remaining fat cells.

What can happen after liposuction is that fat cells in different regions of your body can increase in size in response to weight gain. This means that regions of your body unaffected by liposuction can change their shape in ways you might not find attractive.

Of course, this will only happen if you fail to maintain proper diet and exercise. If, on the other hand, you eat right and stay active, you can fully enjoy the results of your liposuction procedure for years to come. And you can rest easy knowing that the liposuction treatment area can be sculpted and contoured in ways you never thought possible.

If you live in or around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and want to learn more about liposuction or any other cosmetic procedure, please call Dr. David A. Bottger, MD, today at 610-355-1929, to arrange a consultation.
