Fat, fat, go away. Don't come back another day.

The official journal, “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,” had a great article in August 2012 relating to the question, "Where dies the fat go after liposuction?"

For those old enough to remember, there was a commercial years ago for Pepsodent toothpaste.   (By the way, I recently went online to buy some.) The commercial went like this. “You’ll wonder where the yellow went when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent.”

This article tells about 301 patients who underwent liposuction, as a stand alone procedure on in conjunction with a tummy tuck.  

The results were carefully calibrated and revealed NO regrowth of fat in the treated areas NOR did the fat get redeposit elsewhere! 

Great news and this study reports a smaller study of 25 subjects that claimed the fat removed during liposuction went elsewhere.  

My experience as a plastic surgeon who performs liposuction in Fort Myers is that once the fat is gone, it is gone. So don’t despair!

This gives light to those who are worried that re-growth of fat might occur. Thanks for the enlightenment. People can really achieve significant weight loss and body contour with liposuction, especially if they accompany it with exercise and healthy diet after recovery.
