It’s a question that drives many interested in liposuction to consult with Dr. Voge of Wichita’s Plastic Surgical Specialists – “Does the procedure remove fat for good?” While the answer is technically yes, in order to maintain your results, you’ll need to practice a good diet and exercise regime. Why is that? Read on to learn more.
Yes, Liposuction Permanently Sucks Out Fat Cells Forever
When Wichita residents trust Dr. Voge to suction out their fat cells and re-contour their body, they can rest assured that those fat cells that are sucked out are gone for good. That’s right – you’ll never see them again, as your body can’t regrow fat cells once they’re permanently removed. This makes this fat-busting procedure all the more attractive to potential patients who want to make sure they really get long term benefits from their surgical investment.
However, Adjacent Fat Cells Will Remain In and Near Your Problem Areas
Just because a liposuction session with Dr. Voge can suction out much of the stubborn fatty deposits you want to lose for good – such as in your inner thighs or love handles – you need to remember that it won’t remove all fat cells in your treatment areas. Some fat cells will remain.
And the important thing to remember about fat cells is that they can change in shape and size very quickly. If you continue to exercise and diet, you may find that you lose additional weight. But if you gain weight in the future, those fat cells next to your treatment area can grow and enlarge, thus causing the reappearance of your problem area. This is why Dr. Voge is always so clear to her patients that liposuction isn’t weight loss surgery, and that future weight gain may negate initial results.
Diet and Exercise are the Keys to Keeping Your Amazing Results
Most Wichita patients who undergo the procedure find that, after swelling has reduced, they have amazing results that they just can’t wait to show off*! However, if you’re like most of Dr. Voge’s patients, you want your results to last. And the key to longevity is a healthy diet and regular exercise program so that you prevent yourself from unintentionally gaining weight in the future, which may make your problem area reappear.
