lipo and tummy tuck fat loss lasts

In a recent study, researchers determined that the average weight  loss from Liposuction is 2.2lbs and 4.5lbs when combined with a tummy tuck and does not re-appear as long as there is not massive weight gain.

Removal of excess fat cells by liposuction and abdominoplasty provides a long-term reduction in treated areas. Measurements do not support the concept of fat reaccumulation in treated or untreated areas of the body,” the most recent study concluded.

A tummy tuck procedure with Dr. Jack Peterson includes liposuction of the abdomen as a standard part of the procedure.

the three p's of plastic surgery

Product, Practictioner, Place

Product- make sure you are getting injected with an FDA approved product that is approved for the area you want injected.  During a consultation you should understand the different products and why they are injected into different areas of the face. There is NO   FDA approved product for injection into the breast.

Practitioner- Know what type of practicioner is injecting. Is the physician injecting? Go to a doctor that is board certified in plastic surgery.

Place- Don't get injected in a facility that you feel uncomfortable undergoing a medical procedure such as a salon, mall or private home.These are medical procedures and need to be performed in a medical facility due to sanitary environment.

Remember a groupon ad that's to good to be true may mean product that is not FDA approved, a non-certified or inexperienced injector or an unsanitary location.
