Gaining Weight After Liposuction May Redistribute Fat
That's a good question. Once the fat cells have been removed from your thighs, if you consume more calories than you burn, the fat will probably migrate to other areas with more fat cells, resulting in a new fat distribution. If you are going to have a procedure like liposculpture I would strongly advise you get be comfortable and consistent with a healthy diet and exercise regimen so that you can get maximal benefits without new weight gain.

Gaining Weight After Liposculpture May Result in New Fat Distribution Pattern
Liposculpture permanently removes fat cells from your body in the treated areas. However, if you continue to consume more calories than you burn, you will still gain weight. Because there are fewer fat cells left in the area that was sculpted, the fat cells in other areas of your body will expand. Ideally, you should control your calorie intake through proper diet and exercise so that the good results of your liposculpture can be preserved and you will not develop new problem areas. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to learn how you can get the most out of liposculpture.
Fat distribution after liposculpture?
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided
information as well.. This is the surgical
procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most
performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order
to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It
can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin,
abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small
incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied,
it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After
liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months
after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment
for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at
least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many
time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain.
Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an
accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also
really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery,
that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your
body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use
compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure
and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing
it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on
your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult
with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than
fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed
performing a thigh lift…
Amanda –There are far fewer fat cells in the areas where a patient used to be
bulgy, and so a weight gain will instead plump up the fat cells in new
locations. It is not uncommon to experience weight gain disproportionately in
untreated areas. This may give the impression that the fat is coming back in
After puberty, most of us gain weight by storing more fat in the
fat cells we have, not by getting more fat cells. So the untreated areas will
be able to store more fat than the areas that have been treated with
liposuction. If you maintain your
weight following Liposculture, other areas of the body should not enlarge as a
result of procedure if you gain weight post the surgery, you may gain weight
disproportionately in other body areas. To better manage this, one
must continue to control calorie intake after the procedure.
Thank you for your question. SculpSure is a fantastic option for eliminating subcutaneous fat. In a comfortable 20-minute in-office treatment, this cutting edge procedure can reduce up to 25% of that unwanted belly fat that tends to be stubborn to exercise and dieting. I suggest that you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
The fat cells you are troubled by are particularly sensitive to weight gains. Once they are gone, fat will be more evenly distributed. You need to keep your diet so you don't gain weight.
This does not necessarily have to happen. Once we make a removal of fat cells in that area it is very difficult to again accumulate fat in that area.
Fat distribution following liposuction
Thank you for your question.
You describe yourself being more of a pear shape, which is normal for female fat distribution and still considered a feminine shape. However, modern trends favour more sporty female bodies with narrow hips and thighs. You seem to lead a healthy life style, which is excellent.
If you have fat removed from your hips and thighs by means of liposuction, like Vaser you will get more of a shape you want.
However, fat cells still can fluctuate in size with weight gain or loss, and they will do so in all areas of your body, although treated areas tend to be affected last. So in another words you might notice weight gain in other than treated areas first before your hips and thighs. So knowing your calorie requirements and intake are paramount to sustain the shape.
