I'm new to this forum and mainly here to seek out those that have had liposuction done and overall been pleased with their results. I recently took the plunge and had BodyJet Lipo on my hips/outer thighs. I'm barely recovered, haven't even had the chance to appreciate my new figure when I ran across a press release (MSNBC) that shared the findings of a study out of the Univ. of Colorado regarding fat returning other places other than where it was removed. The upper abdomen area, tricep area, face, seemed to be the common areas for the 'compensatory fat' to appear.
Needless to say I am very upset to read this as my surgeon (yes he was board certified) assured me that the only weight gain I would see was if I didn't watch my diet and exercise and basically let myself go, which is a 'given'. I intend to stick to my current diet/exercise regime closely, but am freaked out at the thought of the 3 liters of fat I had taken off my thighs appearing elsewhere, which is what this article seems to be stating.
Is there anyone out there who is a year or more past lipo surgery that can put my mind at ease that I didn't just make the biggest mistake of my life?
