Liposuction works by removing excess fat tissue, which reshapes body contours and creates a slimmer appearance. Liposuction results are permanent. After puberty, we do not create new fat cells. When you gain weight, you expand the fat cells that you already have. Tumescent liposuction permanently removes fat cells to improve your body’s contour. Should you gain weight after liposuction, it goes to the fat cells that remain in your body. Localized fatty deposits that existed prior to liposuction can no longer become disproportional to surrounding areas of the body.
