What happens years after liposuction?
- Last updated: 3 years ago
Hello. I'm new to this forum. It seems really helpful so I'm glad I found it. I'm a 25 year old male and I have areas of fat that have not resolved with exercise ever since I lost weight during high school. I'm now near my ideal body weight but would like to get my flanks and lower abdomen liposuctioned. I have read a lot about what happens during the immediate post-op days, but does anybody have any experience with liposuction years after getting it done (1yr, 5yrs, 10yrs+ post op)? I'm scheduled for tumescent liposuction next month and I have a few concerns. I have read that fat may "return" in the future. Is there anyone who followed with diet and exercise and STILL experienced fat return? If the fat returned to a "new" area that was not originally suctioned, was it "stubborn" requiring a second liposuction procedure, or was it manageable with exercise?
