What Happens If I Gain Weight After Liposuction?

 

gaining-weight-after-liposuctionThe point of liposuction is not to lose weight, but to change the shape of your body.

For example, if you decide that you have some additional fat on your stomach, then liposuction could effectively reduce the size of your waist without making much of a difference in your weight. Other areas that Omaha patients commonly want to sculpt are:

  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Love handles
  • Hips
  • Knees

For Omaha patients who want to get rid of their jowls and create a contoured jawline, liposuction is incorporated into a facelift.

What Does Weight Gain Mean?

Weight gain does not always indicate an increase in your size. If a patient comes in for liposuction and then continues to work out and gain more muscle, then they may have a higher weight but look better. But another patient may gain fifteen pounds by eating unhealthy foods and go up in size.

Although these patients will look a lot different, the contour achieved during their liposuction will remain the same. The patient with an unhealthy diet will retain their shape but simply have a bigger version of what they had.

How Much Weight Is Too Much?

No patient should expect liposuction to permanently change their ability to gain weight. Because liposuction sculpts your body, it will not help maintain your weight. If you fluctuate a little, even ten or fifteen pounds depending on your frame, your results will not change much. But significant weight gain will affect how you look.

Dr. Ayoub recommends keeping a healthy diet and regular exercise routine to keep the results of your liposuction. This procedure is a way for you to get on track to a healthier lifestyle, but it is your responsibility to keep it.
