Can You Expect the Results of Liposuction in Los Angeles to Be Permanent?

Liposuction in Los Angeles provides immediate results. It’s one reason this is a popular cosmetic treatment in the US. It can instantly remove unwanted body fats in some parts of your body to reveal your muscles. Even your favorite supermodels would opt for this procedure to get rid of their stubborn pockets of fat that are unresponsive to strict diet and exercise. But what of the longevity of the results? Are they permanent? 

Liposuction in Los Angeles on Permanently Removing Fat 

There are different forms of liposuction available. Vaser is one of them. But no matter what variations you choose, the main goal is the same. That is, it removes fat cells from a localized area of the body. 

After removing the fat cells in a certain area, it creates new contours in the treated areas. The skin may appear smooth if you have a good skin tone. However, if you have poor skin elasticity, the treated area may appear loose. Regarding the longevity of the contour, it’s permanent. However, you need to maintain your weight. If you gain weight, the contour will remain but it’ll be a bigger shape. 


How About the Fats? Will They Return? 

After liposuction, the fats will return. But only if you don’t watch what you eat and you don’t exercise regularly. That’s why you need to maintain a post-lipo weight. It means that if you weighed 140 pounds before liposuction and 6 pounds of fat have been removed, fats won’t return if you maintain your weight below 136 pounds. Now, if you can’t manage to stay within your ideal weight and you get fat, the fats cells will also get bigger. Then again, the body shape achieved through liposuction will still be visible.

How to Maintain the Results? 

Eat the right food. Focus on nutrient-dense food, instead of eating processed options. Choose to eat more vegetables. Consume moderate protein and healthy fats. You must also avoid sugary food. It means stop eating cakes, donuts, and the like. How about bacon? It’s okay to eat bacon as long as you consume it moderately. But you might want to focus on eating lean meat instead. 

You don’t have to be a vegetarian just to maintain the liposuction results. Meat is a good source of protein and you need it to maintain lean muscles. However, you must consume more vegetables. Drink plenty of water because hydration may trick your brain into thinking that you’re hungry. And if you feel hunger pangs, you eat more, causing you to gain weight. 

But, even if you gain weight after liposuction, you still look better because fats won’t accumulate a lot in the treated areas. Keeping your liposuction results can be quite tricky. But if you just follow Dr. Augusto Rojas’s post-procedure instructions, you’ll be on the right track. 

Always remember to reduce your caloric intake. Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Are you ready to undergo liposuction in Los Angeles? Consult our cosmetic surgeon today at (310)-391-7143
