A recent article in New Beauty Magazine disproved many of the top myths about liposuction. Have you been falsely believing any of these untruths? To learn more, keep reading.
Liposuction can erase cellulite
Contrary to popular belief, liposuction cannot reduce cellulite. If cellulite is a concern, however, Cellulaze® laser cellulite reduction at The Langdon Center is both safe and effective.
After liposuction, fat returns elsewhere
This myth has been disproven time and again yet still persists. If your weight stays consistent, fat will not return elsewhere “just because.”
Fat cannot grow back after liposuction
That being said, if you gain a significant amount of weight, fat can return to the area that was treated with liposuction. While the fat cells removed with lipo cannot return, the fat cells themselves can grow larger and expand. Because the majority of fat cells in the treated area have been removed, it takes substantial weight gain to see an appreciable change in these areas after liposuction. Dr. Langdon always recommends that patients maintain steady body weight after undergoing liposuction, or better yet that they lose some additional weight. Additional weight loss can greatly accentuate the improvement in body contours that result from liposuction.
