How Much Weight Did You Lose After Liposuction
Inches, not Pounds: Liposuction will change you in inches more than in pounds. It works best for localized deposits of fat that don’t respond to conventional diet and exercise. The correction from surgery is permanent. But since you asked about weight, the answer depends on how heavy you are to start with.

Body : Body wraps should not be considered a long term treatment of excessive fat. The wraps work by tightening and dehydrating the tissues, and the results are very limited and last less than a day. This result may be considered acceptable for fitting more smoothly into a dress for an evening, but body wrap is not comparable to the results that are achieved with liposuction. Liposuction can reduce the volume of fat deposited in focused areas quite significantly. The results of liposuction are considered permanent, as the removed fat will not grow back.

It is incumbent on the patient to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to keep their weight stable or ideally even lose a bit after surgery for optimal results. Patients that are not committed and gain weight are very unhappy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
