Fat cells do two things. They swell (with caloric intake) and they shrink (when the body burns more calories than it takes in). The fat cells that are removed from a part of the body will not return. However, continued excess calorie intake will cause fat cells in other parts of the body to swell and may produce a profoundly unappealing look.
As for the incisions, surgeons may place a suture to loosely close the liposuction incision. This allows the fluid that is instilled in the treatment area to drain after the procedure. Its typically a matter of surgeon preference. I have found that a single suture will help the site heal with as thin a scar as possible.
