Does Liposuction Help with Weight Loss?

For years, men and women have been on the hunt for a mythical weight loss treatment that can have them instantly looking pounds-thinner. As a result, many are turning to surgical liposuction procedures to get the job done. But, does liposuction actually help with weight loss? Let’s take a closer look.

Liposuction is considered to be a body-contouring and sculpting procedure and isn’t necessarily designed for lifelong weight loss. Instead, the procedure removes stubborn localized fat pockets that are typically resistant to diet and exercise. Although a significant amount of fat may be removed (up to 5-liters), that only translates to about 11-pounds.

You may not be able to see major changes when you step on the scale after liposuction. However, you can expect to see a reduction in inches, dress sizes and pant sizes throughout the treated area.

Think of liposuction more like a start to your weight loss goals. You’re much more likely to achieve desired results when you begin to approach the procedure as a way to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat rather than a way to lose weight.

Once fat cells are eradicated, they’re not able to return… but that doesn’t mean new cells aren’t able to form. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime is essential to prolonging the outcome of any cosmetic body-contouring treatment.

You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you’re near your ideal body weight and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for you. Men and women who are committed to maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle following their treatment typically have a high patient satisfaction-rate for years to come.
