I had liposuction 10 months ago in my tummy area, I haven't

Customer Question

I had liposuction 10 months ago in my tummy area, I haven't seen any difference at alll to my body.
My weight it the same and I still have a lot of fat round my tummy. I am 5ft 5in. 14stone.
After the surgery I was shown the amount of fat, 2 x 2ltr bottles approx.
Would my fat cells just have grown back ?

Yes Fat cells can always grow back. The fat that is removed at liposuction never grows back. But new fats cells can grow there and in other areas if changes are not made such as diet and exercise.
