How long will my nonsurgical fat reduction results last?
You may notice an improved body contour immediately after your procedure, but an accurate picture of your nonsurgical fat reduction results can take several months. Nonsurgical fat reduction results are technically permanent because the treatment destroys fat cells.
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 results. If you eat excess calories, fat will no longer be stored in the cells that were removed, but the fat will be stored in other body areas. Also, the treatment does not remove all of the fat cells from your target area, so you could still increase the size of the remaining fat cells in that area.
