Gaining Weight After Liposuction

Gaining Weight After Liposuction featured image

Many people think of liposuction as a permanent way to fix fat. However, research shows that this is simply not true.

Once puberty is hit, the number of fat cells you have remains constant and no new cells are made; so some believe that if fat is sucked out, you reduce the number of fat cells and, therefore, your tendency to store fat.

However, since not all fat cells are removed, those that remain will still expand and fill up with fat if you take in more calories than your body needs. So, for example, even if liposuction removes fat cells from your thighs, you may later find that your arms, abdomen, calves-or anywhere else you have fat cells-get fatter if you eat too much.

The bottom line: if you maintain your weight, you maintain the benefits of liposuction.
