What To Expect After A Liposuction?
The skin stretches to accommodate our bodies, fat deposits, and all. When liposuction is performed and the fat cells are removed, the skin remains unchanged and won’t be shrunk down by the treatment. For this reason, all candidates for liposuction are usually evaluated for the elasticity of their skin, or its ability to “bounce back” after being stretched. Healthy, elastic skin is more likely to shrink upon its own gradually following your surgery.
You may also notice that some of your skin is loose in the area treated with liposuction. Loose skin can firm up over time. However, depending on several factors, such as age or how much fat was removed, surgical intervention may be necessary to tighten up the skin. Every person is different and your surgeon can talk with you about skin tightening as part of your body contouring procedure if warranted. Depending on the amount of fat removed, you can expect to see final results between 1-3 months after the procedure.
Here’s How You Can Improve Your Skin’s Elasticity
Overall, liposuction can help you achieve your body shape by removing your stubborn excess body fat, but it is important to have realistic expectations and know that maintaining your new look long-term requires a commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
