Some results of liposuction will be visible immediately after the surgery. However, complete improvements introduced to the body by the intervention will take some time to become visible. Some months after the surgery, the final results of liposuction will become noticeable. Your body will appear beautifully outlined when the ultimate outcomes of liposuction become visible. Many patients are concerned about the sustainability of the results of liposuction. They often ask whether the results of liposuction are permanent. The aesthetic improvements achieved via liposuction are permanent as long as you watch your diet and stick to a reliable exercise program after the surgery. Liposuction contours your body by removing the excess, stubborn fat pockets that develop in different areas of the body as a result of a poor lifestyle and other factors. While the surgery removes most of the fat cells from the target areas, it does not eliminate each and every fat cell. When a patient gains weight after the surgery, the existing fat cells will expand again. The fat cells will continue to expand to a certain extent, after which they will multiply, giving birth to new fat cells. If you continue to gain weight, the new fat cells will also expand and give birth to more fat cells. The process will continue until you stop it through diet and exercise. The expansion of the fat cells and birth of new fat cells resulting from weight gain after liposuction can cause your body to become poorly contoured again. Weight gain will not only affect the areas treated by liposuction but may also trigger the development of stubborn fat pockets in other areas of the body as well. The results of liposuction are dependent on your weight after the intervention. Minor and steady weight gain is fine but drastic weight gain can make the results of liposuction futile. In other words, the results of liposuction are permanent as long as you stick to a healthy diet and exercise to keep your weight stable. This is the reason why plastic surgeons advise patients to stick to a balanced diet and do exercises on a regular basis after the procedure.
