Weight gain after tummy tuck and lipo?

Weight Gain post Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
Congratulations on completing your surgery. It is difficult to say where the fat will go when you gain weight. Once the fat cells are removed, you never regrow new fat cells but the fat cells that are left behind can get bigger. This can give you an appearance similar to what you had prior to liposuction, but just gaining weight doesn’t necessarily mean that the fat will return in just those areas. I hope this helps.
If it happens that you gain weight, some of the remaining cells will get bigger, but usually following the new shape created by the surgeon
Can the area that were treated with liposuction regain contour if I put on weight.
