Weight gain after liposuction


Recommended Posts

Hey,

I'm 2 weeks post liposuction which I had done to my inner, outter and banana rolls on the back of my thighs. I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced weight gain in the non treat liposuction areas? I've read a lot of reviews and it's seems as tho people start to gain weight in the areas they were tinnier in before hand. I'm a little freaked out because I have always been really small up the top but always had thighs. I would be devastated if I started to gain weight in my top half. 

 

If if someone could let me know who has had liposuction that would be great! 

 

Thanks

I just posted about this in another section! A recent study concluded that close to 100% of patients gain the fat back elsewhere in 1-2 years. The preferred area seemed to be the back. Patients were still happy though and none of them regretted the surgery. I'm torn as well. My fat goes on my stomach which is why I want to remove a bit. However the idea of more back fat is not appealing!

Hmmm 

Im a PT & nutritional medicine student.

Although spot reduction is impossible in fat loss, try l-carnitine (supplement) with 45 mins fasted (no food in ur system) cardio each morning before breakfast after u wake up. Along with a diet planned for u & weight training program. See a PT & nutritionist or dietician.

Im 3.5 weeks post op & came back to the gym last Friday as I'm concerned about fat depositing in other areas now.

Best of luck.

I had liposuction done about 1 year ago with Inspire Cosmetics. They booked me in with dr musavi in sydney, he's a cosmetic surgeon. I had my complete ab area done, and flanks. I did look pretty good at the 4 month mark. The flanks are still looking great, but I can feel that if I drink to much alcohol I've put some kgs back on, so I have been dieting again to get back down in weight. I think lipo really just changed my shape at that weight level, but if i put on weight i'll end up looking like i was before ;-/

The science of L-carnitine supplementation is a little more complicated than this.

'Acetyl L Carnitine' has been show to be beneficial for fat loss, however studies have shown that it needs to be taken with a high GI carbohydrate (in order to induce a large spike in the metabolic hormone insulin). Typically, the traditional "post-workout meal" consisting of protein and carbohydrates is where this supplement would be ingested in the literature. The theory is that the increase in insulin shuttles the L-carnitine to the mitochondria thereby helping the body to preserve muscle glycogen stores whilst burning fat.

The time of day that you ingest l-carnitine does not figure in the scientific data whatsoever, as human metabolism does not clock-watch in the same way that our circadian rhythm contributes to sleep.

Not only does the science impose implications for successful use of L-carnitine for weight loss and fitness goals, people who use this amino acid-like supplement need to be mindful of their macro-nutrient targets, and other dietary behaviours such as nutrient timing, issues surrounding fasted states, low carbohydrate vs high carbohydrate diets etc, as many people will choose to avoid insulin spikes for health or medical reasons.

L-carnitine is also a dose dependent. Prominent American Exercise Physiologist (and contributor to bodybuilding.com), Jim Stoppani, recommends that while a dose as small as 1gm can be effective, it is best to take 2-3gm per dose for maximum effectiveness.

If you want to try L-carnitine, be prepared to use high doses, which can be quite expensive. Also, you have to be willing to ingest high glycemic carbs for the supplement to work its magic! Currently, researchers are focusing more on how this supplement can enhance athletic performance, rather than ways that it can enhance fat burning.

If you are having a good lifestyle and exercise is a part of your day, most probably you won't gain weight after lipo. If you do so, don't worry it won't be as bad as before. Consulting with your surgeon will be much better in this situation, cause there could be another reason for gaining weight. Don't freak out   All the best. 

Honestly no idea. I even use my fitness pal to track my food intake. All i can think of is i lift heavy weights and im a lot stronger now than a year ago. That or i must have some hormonal or thyroid issue!
