Liposuction in Bristol
Liposuction, also known as liposculpture, is a procedure to remove unwanted fat deposits from the body. It permanently reshapes the body by removing stubborn fats that store in specific areas of the body, such as the thighs, hips, tummy, neck, chin, buttocks and knees.
Liposuction results can last for many years because it manually removes fat cells, and the body will not replace them. It is a common myth that when fat cells are removed from one area, they show up in another. This is not true. Fat cells behave differently from other types of cells. Once we reach adulthood, the total number of fat cells in our bodies remains very stable. Weight gain and loss does not occur by adding or subtracting fat cells, but rather by the existing fat cells we have getting bigger or smaller. While treated areas will not regain the same amount of bulk as they would have without liposuction, remaining fat cells will enlarge with weight gain, which could “cancel out” the results.
