Man and woman making silly faces posing in front of graffiti wall.Lipo is, like, all the rage right now, and it’s easy to see why. Who wouldn’t want a little extra help making their dream bods come true? But before you dive right in, you probably have some questions.

Luckily for you, we’ve got answers. Here are your top three burning liposuction questions and answers.

1. How Much Does Lipo Really Hurt?

Liposuction is performed under local or general anesthesia, so you shouldn’t feel a thing during the procedure itself. Once you get home, you’ll probably feel like you just had surgery, because, you know, you did. But the pain shouldn’t be unmanageable. Some people describe it as feeling like they have a giant bruise in the treated area.

2. How Much Weight Will I Lose?

Post-lipo swelling can last  for a few months, so hold your horses on evaluating your results.

Repeat after me: liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. So you’re not going to drop very many pounds at all. In fact, you might even go up a few numbers on the scale due to swelling. But what you should notice is that your clothes fit and look a whole lot better after liposuction.

3. Will the Fat Pop Back up in Other Places?

Once the fat is removed from your body, it’s gone, kaput. But the remaining fat cells can get bigger, so you can still regain weight there. But because you have more fat cells in other areas of your body, any new weight that you put on might have a tendency to stockpile in those areas, rather than in the treated spots.
