How long will my liposuction results last?
You may notice an improved body contour immediately after your procedure, but an accurate picture of your liposuction results can take several months. Patients may also experience six to nine months of additional swelling that fluctuates with exercise or excessive activity.
The results of liposuction surgery are technically permanent. However, weight gain, weight loss, aging, pregnancy, family genes, and lifestyle factors may affect your results. It is crucial to maintain healthy habits and a stable weight to maintain your liposuction results.
Following liposuction, if you continue to eat excess calories, fat will no longer be stored in the cells that have been removed but will be stored in other body areas. There is no way to predict where your body will store new fat. Your surgeon does not remove all of the fat cells from your target area, so you could still increase the size of remaining fat cells in that area.
While results are individual to each patient, liposuction Before and After photos can help you assess what successful liposuction results will look like.
What do I need to consider after my liposuction surgery?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you return to your aesthetic plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times and whenever you notice any changes in the treated area. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
