When fat cells are removed from a treated area, they do not return. However, weight gain will cause the remaining fat cells to expand. Liposuction is the only way to remove excess fatty tissue in specific areas of your body. It does not, however, influence long-term body weight.
*Individual Results May Vary
During the procedure, patients generally experience minimal to no pain. For several days following the surgery, patients may have a “sore muscle” feeling as if they have been vigorously exercising. Recovery times vary depending on the body areas that are treated. Most patients return to normal activities within two to three days. For best results, a compression garment should be worn over the treated area for seven days following the surgery.
The results are apparent within a week of the procedure. There is usually still some swelling at this time; even more improvement will be seen in the following weeks. The final results will be evident three to six months after surgery.
