Doesn't the fat just come back after lipo?
I'm skeptical of getting lipo because I figure the fat would naturally be re-distributed back over time (years) to the areas it was removed. Is this true? Has anyone had lipo results that they can undeniably say lasted? If it's only temporary fix I don't know if I'm willing to fork over the funds for it.

It's supposed to not return unless you gain weight which in that case you will gain weight everywhere, including the area you had lipo'd.

If you maintain your lean body mass using nutritious eating and regular exercising the fat removed should be permanent. However if you don't then the fat will return everywhere throughout your body equally. It won't just target the area the fat was liposuctioned out but rather follow your body's natural pattern of fat distribution. Only undergoe liposuction if you're ready to permanently change your lifestyle. It's really not intended to be a weight loss method but rather a way to fix proportions once you are at your ideal weight and plan to stay at it.

Yeah only do lipo if you're not going to gain weight. Otherwise you're just pouring your money down the drain.

Well what if my body is pretty good and I could lose weight but don't want to because it would make my face look worse, am I a candidate for lipo? I just want it on my stomach as I work out and have some nice tone, but just have more fat on it than I would like. Would my fat come back ever? Like if they suck out 5 to 10 pounds of fat, does that eventually come back if I don't change my habits... which there is nothing totally wrong with as I like the way the fat distributes everywhere else.

:( yeah it sucks but if you gain any weight back after lipo it will come back evenly however your body distributes fat.

yeah, it's true that you should go for liposuction only when you are going to change your lifestyle (most importantly diet).

If you gain any weight after lipo, the fat will be distributed evenly among the body parts, and that's not good.

You should take proper care of your diet after lipo or you will have wasted a lot of money.
