Home » Can Fat Come Back After Liposuction?
Many men and women who have issues losing weight turn to liposuction to help them get the results they want. But recent studies have suggested the fat removed after liposuction can come back. If this is the case, why choose liposuction at all? We decided to do some digging to get you the truth to the dire question: can fat come back after liposuction?
The answer turned out to not be as simple or one-sided as we’d originally assumed.
An important thing to understand is that liposuction is more of a spot treatment than a “get rid of extra fat all over my body” procedure. If you have excess fat sitting on your hips, then you can have that fat removed. The same with your stomach, buttocks, thighs, neck, back, etc. If you have fat sitting elsewhere on your body that you don’t have removed during the procedure, that fat will still be there.
There are two types of fat which accumulate on your body. Subcutaneous is the type that sits just below your skin, while visceral is the kind that is deeper. It sits around your organs, and is the real culprit behind things like heart disease caused by obesity. Liposuction removes the visceral fat. While this is great news for your health, it would seem it wouldn’t make for drastic weight loss results. The real story is that it does make it so much easier for you to lose the subcutaneous fat left behind.
While surgical procedures like liposuction can give you a huge head start towards the body you’ve always dreamed of, it simply isn’t a fix-all solution. If you don’t make healthy choices, the fat is going to come back – that’s the way our bodies work. If you really want to make the most of your liposuction procedure, you should start by creating a healthier lifestyle. Even the smallest changes can make a world of difference. Check out these helpful tips for ideas on small, sustainable changes you can make to keep the fat off after liposuction:
