In brief: Yes and No

Smart lipo permanently destroys fat cells, however not all of the cells in an area are destroyed and it is still possible to "get fat" in other areas.
This is especially true with visceral fat under a treated abdomen (that fat cannot be reached with smartlipo as it is below the muscles.).

In brief: Do you mean HDL?

If you are asking about hdl, the good cholesterol, it doesn't prevent high cholesterol.
The way it helps is by acting like a vacuum cleaner, cleaning out the "bad cholesterol" from the bloodstream. The higher it is, the better.

In brief: Similar to all

Smart lipo or else, they all remove fat the same way.
If you gain weight, other body parts enlarge more than the suctioned areas.

In brief: SmartLipo Melts Fat

Fat that is melted is gone forever. However fat cells nearby or in other parts of the body will enlarge with weight gain.
So best to do when you are at a stable weight.

In brief: Fat return

In general, no matter what technique, the fat from the area is permanently removed.
So the tendency when one gains weight is that it goes to areas that have not undergone lipo. However, a recent study concluded that some abdominal fat can return while in other places like hips it does not.
