3 Truths Everyone Should Know about Liposuction


Liposuction has become a household term, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s on the same page when it comes to the facts about this body contouring procedure. Myths about liposuction can cloud the truth and get in the way of a real understanding of all this plastic surgery procedure has to offer, as well as what its limitations are. Below are three things that everyone needs to know about liposuction.

  1. Liposuction Isn’t a Weight Loss Substitute

    It would be ever so convenient if there were a simple procedure that could help you lose dozens of pounds, but there really is no such thing. You can’t lose weight with liposuction, and gastric bypass surgery is reserved for people who are clinically obese. If you’re not eligible for gastric bypass but you are overweight, diet and exercise should happen before you consider liposuction. Once you’ve come close to your ideal weight, liposuction can target persistent fat that won’t budge despite your healthy lifestyle.

       Men and women who are close to their target weight experience the best results from liposuction. 

  2. Fat Doesn’t Come Back after Lipo

    One of the more common myths about liposuction is that the removed fat cells will reappear elsewhere in the body. Liposuction permanently eliminates fat cells from the treatment area, but can’t prevent against future weight gain. Maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle is the best way to preserve your liposuction results for the long-term so that you retain your improved contours.

  3. Liposuction Doesn’t Improve Cellulite

    Many women are concerned by the appearance of cellulite on their thighs or buttocks and look to liposuction to resolve the issue. Liposuction can’t improve the appearance of cellulite, but Cellfina™ cellulite treatment, a minimally-invasive procedure, can address the root cause of cellulite for improved skin tone and texture.
