Does Liposuction Really Work?

Does Liposuction Really Work?

According to board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Brian Peterson, yes it absolutely does.  However, liposuction must be implemented for the right reason to be effective.  Today we will divulge the proper purpose of liposuction and explain the realistic expectations that patients should have. 

What is liposuction?  According to an American survey, approximately 500,000 liposuction procedures are conducted every year in the states. Liposuction is used to spot treat and remove stubborn fat cells from a particular part of your body.  It is not intended for a total body weight loss treatment. 

Who Is Most Likely to Benefit From Liposuction?  Anyone that struggles with obstinate pockets of fat in certain areas of their body will benefit from this procedure.  Men typically use liposuction, or lipoplasty, to reduce fatty deposits in their abdomen, buttocks and chest.  Women are more prone to targeting their hips, waist and thighs.

What Are the Proper Expectations One Should Have Post-op?  A group of women in Brazil underwent liposuction; half of the women participated in exercise 3x a week and the other half did not.  The study revealed that 6 months after surgery, the women who did not work out increased their body fat by 10%. Liposuction is not a permanent weight loss solution.  It is imperative that patients exercise regularly and maintain a balanced diet after surgery.
