Is it Possible to Gain Returning Fat After Liposuction?
Added on 15th January 2021
One of the worries that patients tend to have before considering liposuction surgery is whether there’s a chance to regain fat after liposuction. Many patients look to liposuction as a long-term solution for their excessive fat needs. In this vlog, we’ll look into this in more detail to understand whether this is something that you should be worried about following a liposuction surgery.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is defined as a surgical technique that can help to remove excess fat on the body. Ideally, this tends to be used on areas of the body where fat makes the body look unproportionate to other areas, or if there are any isolated fat deposits.
Is there a chance of gaining returning fat after liposuction?
In this particular scenario, the possibility of gaining returning fat after liposuction is highly unlikely as the procedure itself will help to remove it. However, if you experience fluctuations of weight there can be occasions where this can change the amount of fat that’s been distributed around the body.
One of the problems with liposuction, and excessive liposuction in particular, are the irregularities that can form. This is why it’s important not to remove too much fat to prevent irregularities becoming visible in the future.
Some patients can still gain fat after liposuction in some areas of the body, but usually after liposuction it shouldn’t be in areas where the fat has already been removed. We do advise during your consultation that it’s important that you’re weight-stable before the procedure as this can provide the best results for you.
