Are Liposuction Results Permanent?

Posted: December 22, 2020

Liposuction results are permanent in that any fat that is removed with surgery can never be remade. Once a patient goes through puberty, the number of fat cells that has been determined that person to have is set. So, if you have 100 fat cells before surgery and 50 of those are removed with liposuction, you will forever only have 50 fat cells. Those remaining cells can hypertrophy if you were to gain weight. If you have any specific questions about liposuction as a surgery procedure and the risks associated with that, please don’t hesitate to call me at Zinsser Plastic Surgery at 804-474-9805 or visit our website at
