After liposuction thigh shape improvement is maintained despite 20 lb. weight gain.
30 year old single mother of 9 yr. old daughter and 5 1/2 yr. old son. She is 5’8” high and her weight as fluctuated between 110 to 130 but even at her lowest she still had fullness of her inner and outer thighs, excess fat just below her buttock crease in the upper thigh, and hips. Her skin tone was very good to support liposuction.
At surgery 1400 cc of fat was removed (just over 3 lb.). About 200 cc from each hip, 360 cc from each outer thigh and back of her thigh, and 150 cc from each inner thigh. Fluid was evenly put into her tissues while under anesthesia to maximize fat removal.
Patient gained 20 lb. to 150 lb. when after surgery photos taken 2 yrs. 7.5 months after her procedure.
Despite gaining 20 lb. her post operative photographs show her shape remains improved after surgery. i.e. the figure faults about the thighs remain improved.
Weight gained after a liposuction procedure is more evenly distributed than a similar weight gain before liposuction.
She “Loved the lipo” and “best thing she’s ever done, great result”.
