Liposuction FAQs

Star Plastic Surgery - Liposuction

Who is a good candidate for liposuction?

The best candidates for liposuction are people with localized accumulations of fat in specific areas. Liposuction can be used both on average sized and obese patients, but larger patients may benefit more from another body contouring procedure such as a body lift.

The best way to determine if you are a candidate for liposuction is through a one-on-one meeting with one of our plastic surgeons.

Will liposuction make me lose weight?

Liposuction removes fat deposits from targeted areas of your body, but is not a good method for weight loss. Liposuction is ideal for patients who have stubborn deposits of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise, but should not be seen as an alternative to weight loss methods.

Are the results of liposuction permanent?

Adults do not grow new fat cells. As you gain weight, your fat cells do expand. Once removed, these cells cannot grow back, but the existing fat cells can still expand. If excessive weight is gained after liposuction surgery, the results of your liposuction will be short lived. The best way to maintain permanent results with liposuction is through adopting healthier lifestyle choices. Eating a well-balanced diet and getting at least two hours of moderate exercise a week can help your results last for a life-time.

Will liposuction produce indentations in my skin?

Dimpling or indentations in the skin were once a concern with liposuction. Modern advancements greatly reduce the risk of these indentations.
