How Soon After do you begin to see results from your liposuction surgery, and How Long do the Results last?
I’m sure you want to know about liposuction results in 2 situations.
First, how soon for you to see clear, concrete, “optimal” results?
Second, how long do the results last?
How Soon to see Results
This depends on the swelling, how soon it can subside.
It could last for weeks or even months after liposuction, preventing the results from showing.
Your skin in the treated area may appear loose, since your body takes time to adjust to its new, slender shape.
And then depends on your skin condition and skin elasticity, it could take you from 1 to 3 months for swelling and bruising to subside and up to 6 months for your skin to tighten over the area from which the surgeon removed the fat.
So, you see, you could take up to 6 months to visibly see the results from the liposuction surgery.
During these 6 months, you could have achieved better health and several dress sizes down by going non-liposuction, i.e. going for exercise and eating healthy.
Of course, it’s precisely because exercise and healthy diet don’t work that you resort to liposuction to surgically remove the fat.
OK, I understand your situation but I’m going to tell you some hard truths as well.
This brings me to the second question.
How Long the Liposuction Results Last
You go for liposuction because you think it’s a quick fix to your weight problem.
However, it’s really the bad way for weight loss as it’s merely a cosmetic surgery to reshape your body contour by removing the excess fat from certain places.
Studies show that those who go for liposuction are 4 times more likely to gain weight if don’t do regular exercise and 3 times more likely to gain weight if don’t adhere to a proper diet.
You and I know that it doesn’t take long to gain weight either way, no exercise and no proper diet!
You guess how long the results gonna last if you eat like there’s no tomorrow and don’t exercise?
In a study which surveyed more than 200 people who undergone liposuction, 43% gained weight after having liposuction, with the majority gaining weight after 6 months; 25% lost weight while 32% experienced no change in weight.
Even the plastic surgeons acknowledge that if you want positive long-term results from liposuction, you’ve to be willing to exercise and eat a healthy diet.
Those who adhere to exercise and a healthy diet after liposuction are 2 times more likely to lose weight and have a 96% chance of a decrease in dress sizes and 15 times more likely to be satisfied with their bodies and have improved long-term results.
Liposuction & Lifestyle Choices
The onus is on you yourself to make the liposuction stick around for a long, long time. It’s not the liposuction as it doesn’t give you the license to eat-all-you-can and do no exercise and you still get to keep your weight or lose weight.
So, I’ve killed the myth that says that liposuction results are permanent. They aren’t permanent; weight gain and fat return within months, if you don’t exercise and eat healthy.
They’re permanent if you exercise and eat healthy.

Results from liposuction are not permanent if you aren’t willing to put in the effort to exercise and eat healthy. Period.
