Evaluating How Much Fat Liposuction Can Safely Remove

Fat Liposuction

Liposuction is a procedure that, thanks to advanced technologies,  surgeons can perform practically blindfolded every week. Each treatment is completed with a pretty good idea about how much fat can be removed.

It's incredible for surgeons to see how the amount of fat removed, whether minor or plenty, can determine the procedure's overall effect.

How Much Fat Can Liposuction Remove?

A liposuction procedure can effectively remove around three to four liters of fat. The fat is permanently removed since we have a finite amount of cells in our body. 

The common misconception about losing fat is that you lose fat cells when dropping weight or gain fat cells when gaining weight. That's not the case; the finite number of fat cells either shrinks or expands.

Another misconception is the concept of 'permanently.' The fat will be lost. Still, the weight can return if you adopt an unhealthy lifestyle and continue to expand your remaining fat cells.

All in all, these procedures last about two to three hours in total.

If The Weight Is Regained, Where Does The Fat Grow Back?

Patients tend to ask: "If I gain back the weight, will the fat appear in unexpected places, making my body look out of proportion?"  The answer to the question is no. That's because we're genetically programmed to store fat in specific areas of our bodies.

Our genetic makeup determines our body type. Some of us are 'apples,' and others are 'pears.' Others store fat in their necks, love handles, or flanks.

Therefore by knowing your body type and how your genetics tend to distribute fat from weight gain throughout your body, you'll be able to understand whether any incoming weight will give you a disproportionate look.

By properly planning your diet and taking the time to do enough exercise, you will have the results that you're looking for and will be able to keep them permanently.

I Don't Like My Previous Liposuction Results. What Do I Do?
