After the age of 18 years, the total number of fat cells in the body does not increase as fat cells neither regenerate nor multiply. The distribution of fat cells across the different areas of the body varies depending on the patients genetic / ethnic characteristics. As the person gains weight; the fat cells increase in size (like balloons) due to depositon of fat in these cells. As the patient loses weight and the fat is mobilized out and the fat cells decrease in size. However, due to the irregular distribution of the fat cells, some of the parts like the abdomen, love handles in the males; and the arms, hips, and inner thighs in females are more prominent due to a larger number of fat cells which make these deposits “exercise resistant”.

Liposuction can pick up where a healthy diet and exercise leave off to help you achieve your desired look. Liposuction has been used for several decades to remove unwanted fat from a man’s “love handles”, breasts, abdomen and neckline and a woman’s hips, thighs, knees, buttocks, abdomen, cheeks, and neck. It is the most commonly performed & the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure the world over.

During internal / surgical liposuction, fat cells are suctioned out along with the fat and are removed permanently. Therefore, the results of liposuction can be permanent. The subsequent weight gain tends to be uniform and not restricted to the “bulges”. You have to remember that, Liposuction is neither a substitute for dieting and exercise, nor is it a treatment for obesity. However liposuction can remove stubborn areas of localized fat that don’t respond to traditional weight-loss methods.
