Liposuction removes stubborn deposits of fat from the body. Suitable for nearly any area with excess accumulations, liposuction can safely remove up to eight pounds of fat from each treatment area. However, it is not a suitable method for weight loss.

Following liposuction, a slight recovery period is required. Activities will need to be limited during this time to enable your body to heal properly. Once you have recovered completely, typically between weeks six and eight, you can resume all normal activities, but with improved clothing options, a greater range of motion, and a more attractive frame.

Liposuction is Permanent

Liposuction is permanent. Removed fat cannot come back. Sculpted areas of the frame will retain their new size and shape so long as you avoid weight gain.

It takes time for accumulated fat deposits to produce a lumpy, soft, and ill-defined appearance. You can avoid this issue by eating wisely and getting enough exercise. Neither of these things need to be extreme. Even taking daily walks can help to prevent weight gain.

If you struggle with finding exercise you enjoy or nutritious foods you like to eat, consider working with a nutritionist and fitness coach. These professionals can help you select the most effective weight management methods for your specific needs.
