How Long Can You Expect Your New Jersey Liposuction Results To Last?


Liposuction is not for everyone. There is common misconception among patients considering Liposuction in New Jersey is that it is a weight loss tool. This is not the case.

However, some fat cells will always remain in the treated area as well as around the body, which will grow larger if the patient gains weight following the procedure. For those who gain a significant amount of weight following the surgery, fat will be stored in other body parts which can result in a disproportionate look due to an asymmetrical distribution of fat.
