Permanent Fat Removal Disclaimer

TriSculpt® Body Contouring Micro-Laser Liposuction immediately and permanently removes fat cells. Because adults do not create new fat cells, as long as the patient maintains their weight, the results are permanent.

Sono Bello Chief Medical Officer Dr. Christopher Chung explains, “Most patients are so pleased with the shape changes achieved with liposuction that they enlist in healthier lifestyles and do not see fat deposition in other areas.”  For many patients having surgery is a jumping-off point for a future of eating right and staying fit.  While the number of fat cells is permanently removed, the size of the remaining fat cells remains unchanged.

For example, the area that a patient wants to treat has 100 large fat cells. After surgery, that area is left with 30 large fat cells. The reduction from 100 to 30 is permanent. The size of each of the residual 30 fat cells remains unchanged. If the patient chooses a healthier lifestyle and loses weight post-surgery, 30 large fat cells could become 30 small fat cells – leading to a further reduction in volume. Inversely, if the patient gains weight, the 30 large fat cells may become 30 larger fat cells. Since the number of fat cells in the treated area is reduced, the treated area will not look as voluminous despite the gain size of the fat cells. Still, the adjacent non-treated areas will look relatively larger.
