4 liposuction myths and facts

Liposuction is a common cosmetic procedure with many misconceptions. Below are four of the biggest myths regarding liposuction — along with the liposuction facts to set the record straight.

Myth 1: Liposuction fat comes back.

Fact: Rather than shrink fat cells, liposuction removes them completely. The fat cells can’t grow back or reappear in new areas of the body. By following a healthy diet and exercising regularly, you can maintain your new weight and prevent future weight gain.

Myth 2: Liposuction is only for celebrities.

Fact: While many celebrities do get liposuction, the procedure is attainable for anyone. In fact, the body you’ve been dreaming of may be more affordable than you realize. Convenient financing options may include a variety of payment plans that can help fit the cost of the procedure into your budget.

Myth 3: Liposuction scars are noticeable.

Fact: Many liposuction treatments, including Sono Bello’s TriSculpt micro-laser procedure, are minimally invasive. This results in smaller incisions, with most patients reporting little to no scarring after recovery. With appropriate post-treatment follow-up care as well as time, you may not even notice your incision site.

Myth 4: Liposuction is painful.

Fact: While pain can vary from person to person, most patients report only mild discomfort during the procedure and throughout the short recovery period. Most liposuction procedures are performed using local anesthesia while the patient is awake, which allows patients to notify the doctor if they are experiencing any discomfort so adjustments can be made.
