Many people struggle to lose weight, even with consistent exercise and a healthy diet. Liposuction is a popular procedure that can help you meet your weight loss goal and achieve your body goals. If you are considering liposuction, you might be wondering whether the results are permanent. Let’s discuss.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery that targets stubborn fat on various areas of the body, including the stomach, thighs, back, under the chin, and upper arms. Dr. Diktaban offers several innovative liposuction techniques, including power-assisted liposuction and RFAL liposuction (radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) which uses heat to melt unwanted fat cells and encourage collagen production to tighten the skin.

During the liposuction procedure, a cannula will be inserted under the skin through tiny incisions. The excess fat cells will be carefully suctioned out to achieve a slimmer frame and more accentuated curves. Liposuction can be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic surgeries like a tummy tuck, mommy makeover, or other body contouring procedures.

How Long Do Liposuction Results Last?

Liposuction results are nearly permanent, but there are a few considerations to keep in mind. While liposuction permanently removes unwanted fat cells, other fat cells in the surrounding area can grow with post-surgery weight gain. This will affect or reverse the results of your liposuction procedure. Weight gain might also occur with natural aging or as the result of certain medications. These factors can be discussed in greater detail at your consultation with Dr. Diktaban.

How to Maintain Your Results

Liposuction results can be maintained with a healthy diet and exercise routine. A healthy diet plan means fewer, smaller meals throughout the day and plenty of water to maintain your energy levels and boost metabolism. Not only will a healthy diet prevent the weight from coming back, but it will also aid in a speedy and successful recovery. Make sure to follow your post-care instructions about when you can resume more strenuous activities.

A more specific consideration is for women who are receiving liposuction to eliminate pregnancy-related weight gain. You should not be planning for future pregnancies since weight gain during pregnancy is common and could result in new development of stubborn fat.
