Does Liposuction Permanently Remove Fat?

Handsome smiling man enjoying day on the beach.More than 20 years after its initial use as a surgical way to remove body fat, liposuction has become one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. Although whole-body liposuction is no longer approved, liposuction can remove a significant amount of fat from localized areas and help you reach the aesthetic goals you want.

In a minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Andrew Trussler, with support from his expert team, can quickly and safely remove stubborn body fat with almost no pain and minimal recovery needed.

Using one, or a combination the three main types of liposuction (standard suction-assisted liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, or heating of the fat with either ultrasonic or laser light energy), Dr. Trussler will create a specifc procedure plan to sculpt your body how you want and provide immediate results.

Since the removal of too much fat from the body can lead to negative health issues, whole body liposuction is no longer used. However, by focusing the procedure on specific areas, Dr. Trussler can perfectly sculpt your thighs, abdomen, arms, back, hips, buttocks, and chest. The procedure can be combined with other cosmetic surgery or performed as a standalone treatment using just local anesthesia.

Not only are the results nearly immediate, but they are also permanent. However, you must maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure to ensure fat is not deposited elsewhere in your body. Some patients who experience weight gain have noticed that while their total weight increased, the area where they had liposuction remained relatively toned. The fat however was deposited elsewhere in the body, leading to an unproportioned and uneven body shape.

If you are considering liposuction for the removal of stubborn body fat in certain areas of your body, call Dr. Andrew Tussler and his team in Austin, TX at 512-450-1077, or visit to schedule a consultation today.
