Fat Redistribution After Liposuction

Fat Redistribution After Liposuction

One of the questions frequently asked by people interested in having a Liposuction is how body fat behaves post operation— namely, does it redistribute to other areas of the body? In this article, Iranian Surgery cosmetic surgeon clarifies how the body stores fat after liposuction and then explains how patients can maximize their liposuction results.

The Nature of Fat Cells and Weight Loss

Number of fat cells remains consistent in adults

Studies have shown that the number of fat cells (adipocytes) adult patients have remains consistent throughout their lives, regardless of weight gain or weight loss.

Weight loss doesn’t equal fat cell loss

When an individual loses weight, the fat cells (adipocytes) are not actually going away. In reality, weight loss is decreasing the amount of lipid fatty acids that are contained within the cells. When the lipid fatty acids decrease, the fat cells shrink in size. When fat cells are destroyed or removed, as they are during liposuction, they do not regenerate. However, it is possible for the remaining fat cells to produce higher amounts of the lipid fatty acids, resulting in the appearance that the fat has come back after undergoing liposuction.

Weight gain after liposuction is possible

If patients do re-gain weight post-liposuction surgery, the initial weight gain will appear to “redistribute” to other areas of the body before it is noticeable in the area where liposuction was performed. That said, results can be maintained so long as patients do their part to avoid weight gain post-liposuction by consistently adhering to healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise.

Maintain Liposuction Results Long-Term

If you recently had liposuction or are considering it in the future, it is a good idea to understand how to maintain the results. You are making a big investment in your body’s appearance, and you want to protect and preserve the outcomes as long as possible. The best thing you can do is to maintain a healthy body weight and avoid gaining weight. Eat nutritiously, practice portion control, exercise regularly and stay active. Many patients find that their newly contoured physique is a motivation to exercise and eat healthfully. For some, removing large pockets of fat can make exercise more comfortable, too.
