Thank you for your question. In general weight gain after liposuction is unpredictable and will affect your result.  . Try weigth loss and see your surgeon if additonal liposcution can help.   Best Wishes

It is very difficult to predict how weight gain can affect fat stores in certain areas of the body.  You may be a candidate for additional liposuction or weight loss.

Everyone gains weight in different ways. It is difficult to predict why you gained more weight in your abdomen than in other places.
