Liposuction is one of the more common procedures performed at Mahjouri Cosmetic Surgery & Skincare Clinic.
A lot of people have heard of the procedure but misunderstand how it helps you. If you are considering coming to our outpatient surgery center in Fridley for liposuction, you should know the limitations of fat removal surgeries.
Fluctuating Weight Will Change the Results
When you want to undergo a procedure that has an element of fat removal, Dr. Mahjouri recommends waiting until you are at a stable weight.
Liposuction, tummy tucks, and other treatments involving fat removal are designed to slim the appearance of the current body. However, just because some fat deposits are removed doesn’t mean the remaining fat cells can’t grow or shrink. If you gain weight after liposuction, your body will not look the way it was meant to after the procedure. If you lose weight after fat removal, the areas of deposit removal will stand out.
To obtain the best results from liposuction, you need to be able to stay at the weight you are at when you undergo treatment.
Fat Removal Is Not Weight Loss
Liposuction and other fat removal procedures simply remove deposits of fat tissue from select areas of the body. This is not weight loss at all. If you are looking for a way to lose weight, these cosmetic surgeries are not for you.
However, once you have lost weight, liposuction is a great way to make your body look slim. Stubborn fat deposits can cause your lighter-weight body to appear thicker than it should, and liposuction eliminates these areas of concern.
Liposuction Does Not Address Sagging Skin
In addition to stubborn fat deposits, sagging skin is one of the most common ways a body can look heavier. Liposuction only removes fat deposits from the body; it will not help you eliminate excess skin. Instead, you will need to ask Dr. Mahjouri if you can combine liposuction with a tummy tuck or a lift procedure.
