How Much Weight Can You Lose with Liposuction?

By admin November 25, 2019

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the removal of fatty deposits with the use of a cannula and a machine that will suction the fat away from the body. This leads to a decrease in fat volume. The amount of weight that can be lost through liposuction is limited. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, but rather a body sculpting procedure. The best results are achieved when candidates are within roughly 25 pounds of their ideal weight. On average, liposuction patients can expect to lose 5-10 pounds following their procedure.  

The fat cells removed via liposuction are permanently gone. When fat cells are removed, the remaining ones cannot replicate. However, if you gain weight after liposuction, fat cells may expand into the treated area. This means that your results following liposuction will be permanent if your weight remains the same. Maintenance is the key to staying slim following liposuction. After your procedure in Aurora, Denver, you can use this guide to help you maintain your results:

Follow Doctor’s Orders: Dr. Serota will provide tips, suggestions and recommendations that can help curb fat growth. Since your doctor knows your medical history, a customized weight plan to guide you can be provided.

Be a Conscious Eater: Always be mindful of what you eat and drink. Remember that residual cells can increase in size and can cause your body to lose its sculpted figure again.

Challenge Yourself: Make exercise and sports a part of your life, so you can curb fat growth even as you grow old.

Liposuction does offer a permanent solution to fat reduction. However, it needs help from the patients themselves to keep the results permanent. With all this in mind, it’s important to remember that liposuction has remained one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the US for many years and, in the hands of an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Serota, can enhance the contours of your body with beautiful results.
