When considering liposuction, it is important to remember that this popular body contouring procedure is not intended for significant weight loss. Ideal liposuction candidates will already be at or near their ideal weight with pockets of isolated fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be used to slim and contour most areas of the body, including the abdomen, lower back, chin, upper arms, or thighs.
Dr. David L. Durst generally considers the results of liposuction surgery to be long-lasting without the need for retreatment. If his liposuction patients do gain weight in the future, this weight is typically distributed proportionately throughout the body and usually does not concentrate at the treatment site or sites. With that in mind, the results from liposuction can last for many years. A healthy diet and regular exercise are recommended for maintaining your liposuction results. During the consultation process, Dr. Durst can help you decide if liposuction is the best option for you. To learn more about liposuction, please contact our office today.
