The patient’s new body shape will be more or less permanent after liposuction plastic surgery. Even if they gain a moderate amount of weight after the procedure, their new body shape will merely become a slightly larger version of their post-liposuction figure.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides liposuction to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
Permanent Fat Cell Reduction
The fat cells in the liposuction treated areas are gone for good, and these eliminated cells will not return. The adult body cannot produce new fat cells even if the person puts on a moderate amount of weight. Therefore, the fat cells removed by liposuction are eliminated permanently.
The patient can enjoy their new slimmer body achieved with liposuction as long as they do not put on an excessive amount of weight. However, it is important for patients to understand that the fat cells that remain in the treated area after liposuction can grow larger if they gain a substantial amount of body weight.
The natural process of aging will bring about changes to their body shape over time. But the patient can continue to enjoy the aesthetic benefits of liposuction as long as they maintain a healthy diet and balanced lifestyle.
Effects of a Post-Liposuction Pregnancy on the Results
It is understandable for women to be concerned about the effects that a future pregnancy may have on their liposuction results. Fortunately, most women can be assured that pregnancy will not cause permanent changes to the body contouring outcomes achieved with liposuction cosmetic surgery.
Women who undergo a post-liposuction pregnancy and gain weight but lose the weight after childbirth usually experience a return of their original liposuction results. Many patients appear as if they have not been through a post-liposuction pregnancy at all.
Regardless, the goal of women liposuction candidates should be to receive this procedure when they do not have plans to conceive in the future. Pregnancy can cause stretch marks, cellulite, and loose skin in the abdomen, breast, buttock, and thigh areas. This cosmetic concern is unrelated to liposuction.
While liposuction offers effective body contouring results to patients, it does not have a major impact on the removal of cellulite or stretch marks, enhancing the skin textures, or tightening loose skin.
Liposuction after Final Pregnancy
Multiple pregnancies can cause some women to develop stubborn fat deposits in the abdomen area. If a woman chooses to receive liposuction plastic surgery after her final pregnancy, she can expect an excellent improvement in the shape of her abdomen area.
When do the Results become Visible?
Most patients will be able to achieve 90 percent of their final liposuction outcomes in around three months after the surgery. Depending on the technique used and the extent of the surgery, the post-operative swelling will subside slowly over the next several months.
The results of the liposuction surgery will become apparent after the swelling resolves completely. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for liposuction.
