Is it normal to gain 4 7 lbs in the first few days after liposuction?

Possible: I'm assuming you mean 4-7 lbs. This can be from the tumescent fluid and/or the fluids that are administered intravenously during surgery. Usually this weight gain is very temporary. ...Read more

What happens if you gain weight again after liposuction?

What happens if you gain weight again after liposuction?

After liposuction, do u itch when u gain the fat back in that area?

Healing: Itching after liposuction is generally part of the healing process as your skin tightens and recovers and sensation comes back to normal.

Is it weird to be extra hungry the first few weeks after liposuction?

Not necessarily: Feeling excess hunger after liposuction does not occur commonly, but i wouldn't characterize it as "weird". Sometimes after recovering from trauma the body has an increased demand for nutrition during the healing process. This can lead to increase in appetite to provide extra needed calories. ...Read more

I'm 20 years old and 200 lbs. I want to go for liposuction. What are the pros and cons of that procedure?

More info needed: You did not mention if you are male, female, your height etc... We require all of our patients to be at their ideal weight stable for at least 6 months prior to their consultation. If you lose any weight after having surgery, your results will be compromised. Also if you are overweight and you get liposuction, you may not be able to see any substantial results. ...Read more
