Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction can be performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the individual patient and the area of surgery. With liposuction, a metal tube is inserted under the skin and used to suction out fat and tissue, resulting in a slimmer and more toned appearance. A very important fact to keep in mind is that there will be more skin laxity after liposuction. If the resulting laxity is judged to be excessive, skin tightening will need to be performed, as in abdominoplasty, facelift or brachioplasty.

Common Question about Liposuction

Does This Make you Loose Weight
The amount of fat removal is generally only a few pounds at most. Compared to a person’s weight, it is merely a few percent. Therefore, liposuction should not be considered a weight reduction procedure. It is a contour-improving procedure and can get rid of many common trouble spots such as the thighs.   Similarly, liposuction is not a license to eat and be idle. If you do this, you will regain the amount of fat suctioned out previously, and far more!!

What Happens to Your Body When you Gain weight After Liposuction
Most people do not gain more fat cells after seven years of age. When you gain weight, each existing fat cell simply gets larger. When liposuction of a particular area is performed, it removes certain numbers of fat cells and these fat cells are gone forever. It is, however, not possible to remove all the fat cells in any area completely. Therefore, the remaining fat cells can and do get bigger if you gain weight. However, fat cells in other areas of the body also get bigger, too. So, the simple answer to the question of what happens to your body when you subsequently gain weight after liposuction is that you will get fatter at the suctioned area as well as other areas. The contour is likely to remain better than before liposuction.
