Liposuction is the art and science of aesthetic plastic surgery to sculpt new and beautiful contours, finally eliminating localized fat deposits. Although we try to reduce weight through diet and exercise, the real goal is to improve body contour. We can even lose grams each day, but we want to improve the appearance relative and not absolute weight. For many people, liposuction in addition to reaching the desired initial shape also provides extra psychological boost to maximize results. For example, a person who has four kilos of fat removed during liposuction, then, is motivated to lose six kilos more through diet and exercise.
The excess calories are converted to fat that accumulates in specific cells, called fat cells. With weight loss, fat cells can be emptied almost completely, but do not disappear. They remain in the body as empty bags, eager to be recharged again. The amount and location of fat cells in our bodies are genetically determined at birth. The lifetime, the number of fat cells in the body remains the same. They are unable to reproduce, except in cases of extreme obesity.
Why is liposuction permanent?
Once fat cells are formed, it is very difficult to remove under normal circumstances. If they were removed through liposuction, they do not come back to regenerate. Suppose you do a liposuction and reach the desired contour, but then gain weight. If you lose this weight again, you will have the same appearance as when she made her liposuction. Liposuction does not prevent future weight gain. Excess fat will be deposited in the remaining fat cells evenly distributed throughout the body.
