Once removed, fat does not simply grow back. In this way, results from liposuction are permanent. However, new fat will begin to accumulate if proper care is not taken of the body following your contouring procedure. To help prevent the accumulation of new fat deposits, making healthy lifestyle choices is key.
Board-certified McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside encourages our liposuction patients to eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, exercise at least three hours a week, and take other steps to ensure lasting results. During your treatment phase she will happily discuss the best ways to maintain your liposuction results and provide you with the tools you need to sustain a healthy and rewarding experience.
Liposuction is a wonderful way to address stubborn fat deposits, but is not a good method for weight control. Proper nutrition and healthy activity must be combined with your liposuction treatment to help guard against future fat accumulation and produce lasting results.
