Can Liposuction Address Post-Pregnancy Fat Deposits?

Featured Image

Even when you’ve lost the majority of your baby weight after pregnancy, you may find that some pockets of fat seem to linger and, even more frustrating, don’t respond to diet and exercise in the same way that the rest of your body does. If you have exhausted your efforts with diet and exercise but still have post-pregnancy fat that won’t budge, liposuction may be the solution for regaining your pre-baby body. Read on for helpful information about post-pregnancy liposuction from the esteemed team of Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeons at Forma Plastic Surgery to better understand whether this procedure may be right for you.

Can liposuction restore my pre-baby body?

Many women aspire to regain their pre-pregnancy body contours after childbirth. Liposuction, or fat removal surgery, can contribute significantly to achieving this goal. By selectively removing excess fat from specific areas, liposuction helps to enhance body proportions and contours. However, patients considering liposuction after pregnancy should keep in mind that their body may have undergone other changes during pregnancy and childbirth in addition to simply gaining weight, some of which may not be addressed with liposuction alone. In some cases, a combination of liposuction and other body contouring or skin tightening procedures may be the most effective solution for restoring a closer version of your pre-baby body.

What areas can be treated with liposuction after having kinds?

Post-pregnancy fat deposits can develop almost anywhere on the body, but there are certain areas that are notorious for holding on to post-pregnancy fat, making them highly suitable for post-pregnancy lipo. Some of the most common treatment areas for fat removal after having children include:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks

How long do I have to wait after giving birth to have liposuction?

While our caring team understands the desire to “snap back” into shape as soon as possible after giving birth, it is important to allow your body plenty of time to heal and recover prior to undertaking any new routines or events — including plastic surgery. Furthermore, patients should attempt to lose weight (once cleared by their doctor) through diet and exercise before turning to liposuction and be at or near their goal weight at the time of the procedure. On average, patients may need to wait about 6 – 12 months between childbirth and scheduling their liposuction surgery.

Can liposuction help even if I haven’t had kids?

Absolutely. While liposuction is commonly associated with post-pregnancy concerns, it is a versatile procedure that can benefit patients who haven't had children as well, including men. Whether addressing genetic predispositions, lifestyle factors, or age-related changes, liposuction can help to sculpt and contour the body for a more refined appearance. If you have further questions about whether you may be a candidate for liposuction, don’t hesitate to discuss these in greater detail with our knowledgeable team.
