Liposuction can help you reach the body shape you’ve been working toward with diet and exercise. Even those in excellent shape have stubborn fat in certain areas of their body such as the abdomen, thighs and flanks. Liposuction is a great way to get rid of excess fat, but if you’re not careful, it could resurface in other parts of your body.

Our plastic surgeon in New York City wants you to know how to make your liposuction results last with these professional tips:

Reach a Sustainable Weight Before Liposuction

Before you undergo liposuction, you should be at a stable weight in order to reach and maintain the look you want. Liposuction is not for weight loss, and a healthy lifestyle should be in place for several months before your surgery. The ideal liposuction candidate has worked hard to shrink their fat cells with proper nutrition and exercise, but is still unhappy with their weight distribution.

Maintain Your New Shape With Diet and Exercise

This method of body contouring can help you look your best, but only if you’re dedicated to keeping your new form. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from one or more parts of your body. Fluctuating five or ten pounds after surgery will cause your body to create new fat cells in order to replenish those removed through liposuction. These new cells will form in different areas of your body and not the treated area.
