Is Liposuction Permanent?
Liposuction is not designed or intended to replace a healthy diet or routine exercise. According to Dr. Scott Miller, the best liposuction candidates are already at or near their ideal weight but struggle with troublesome spots of excess fat that seem to resist traditional weight loss methods. Since liposuction can be used to target nearly any area of the body, the procedure can benefit a wide range of patients who wish to slim or contour stubborn fat around areas like the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms, neck, and chin.
The fat cells that are eliminated during liposuction are permanently removed from the body. Consequently, the results of this body-contouring procedure are often significant, revealing a slimmer, more shapely, and athletic-looking figure. However, liposuction does not prevent the remaining fat cells from storing additional fat or growing larger. Therefore, to best maintain your liposuction results, upholding a healthy diet and exercising regularly are the keys to success.
