How Long do Smartlipo Results Last

Smartlipo or any Lipo procedure is used to remove or contour fat.  The results are really dependent on you.  Liposuction is not a weight loss method.  You need to make lifestyle and diet modifications in order to maintain your results.  If you continue to have a lazy lifestyle and poor diet, then you are just going to gain the weight back again.  Good luck.

Fat permanently removed by all forms of liposuction including SmartLipo

As long as you maintain a stable weight after surgery, your new shape should by permanent.

Once fat cells are removed by liposuction (including SmartLipo), they do not grow back unless you gain a very large amount of weight.  Therefore, your new shape should be permanent.

SmartLipo Results Can Last

SmartLipo results will last as long as traditional liposuction. The results can be permanent; as long as you are able to maintain your weight and have so significant body changes. It's a wonderful procedure and patients are loving the results.

Length of results of laser lipolysis

This is one brand of laser assisted lipolysis.

Generally, the longevity of the results should be no different than traditional liposuction techniques.

If your weight remains stable and no other conditions (preganancy) produce any significant regional body contouring changes, the results of fat removal should be permanent.
