Liposuction more effective in conjunction with healthy eating and exercise

Although liposuction is effective in the short term, studies have found that liposuction patients are 4 times more likely to suffer from weight increase if they don't exercise and 3 times more likely to have a weight increase if the don't adhere to a healthy diet. Thus, liposuction in itself is not a cure to weight problems in the long term, it needs to be associated with a good diet and exercise. Surgeons claim that the main aim of liposuction is to resculpt the body rather than to assist weight loss. Nevertheless, 80% of liposuction patients were happy with the results. People who didn't change their diet or exercise habits were 10 times more likely to be unhappy with the results of their liposuction.
