Can I Gain Weight After Liposuction?

Gaining weight after liposuction is certainly a possibility, as no fat removal treatment has the power to prevent future weight gain. However, any extra weight following liposuction is generally redistributed to other regions of the body. While the fat cells extracted during the procedure will never regenerate or “grow back,” surrounding fat cells in the face and body can still become larger or smaller depending on how your weight fluctuates. This can potentially alter the final results of your surgery, not to mention cause you to develop asymmetrical or irregular body contours — which is why our physicians encourage adopting a healthy lifestyle after the procedure to maximize the outcome. 

In general, patients can help preserve their newer, slimmer body contours with preventive measures including: 

  • Living an active lifestyle consisting of regular exercise and a nutritious diet
  • Not having children after liposuction, as pregnancy can cause excess fat accumulation
  • Considering the procedure only once you’re at (or near) your ideal weight range
