It’s not a secret – there are some things that diet and exercise can’t fix. Even so, that doesn’t mean all is lost.
Traditional liposuction and SmartLipo are just two of the many options to help get rid of stubborn fat. But, is liposuction permanent?
What Is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo combines the benefits of traditional liposuction and heat-based treatments. A small incision is made, and a tube is inserted into the target area. The device uses heat to melt the fat, which is suctioned out.
As a bonus, the heat actually tightens the skin and surrounding tissues during the process! Results can be seen after a week, but it doesn’t stop there. Patients can continue to see improvements for up to six months.
The procedure doesn’t require more than a bit of local anesthesia, and most people return to their normal activities just days after the procedure. Compared to the downtime and risks of traditional lipo, it’s no wonder why this is the “smart” choice!
How Long Will It Last – Is Liposuction Permanent, Even Smartlipo?
Is liposuction permanent even when using SmartLipo? The short answer is yes. During traditional liposuction and SmartLipo, the fat that is suctioned out is gone forever.
The long answer is a bit more complicated. Yes, the fat removed is permanently gone, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t accumulate fat in that area ever again.
How Can You Maintain Your Stunning New Look After Lipo?
There are things you can do to keep your results as amazing as possible and prevent the return of excess fat. When you gain weight, your fat cells can grow in size so maintaining your body weight is key.
It’s also good to make sure you’re drinking lots of water and eating a well-balanced diet. To learn more about SmartLipo, call our staff at Mid-Atlantic Skin Surgery today at 301-396-3401, or contact us online now!
