What impact will a future pregnancy have on liposuction outcomes is a significant concern for many women. However, women can be assured that pregnancy will not have a permanent impact on their body contouring results achieved through liposuction plastic surgery.


No Change

Women who become pregnant after liposuction and put on weight but subsequently lose the weight after delivery typically experience a return of their original liposuction physical stature. These types of patients often appear as if they have not gone through a pregnancy after liposuction at all.

Ideally, women should seek liposuction if they do not have any future plans to become pregnant (and if they feel they need it of course). But it does not matter if they do plan on becoming pregnant again or for the first time since liposuction surgery is no threat at all to any woman.

Moreover, stretch marks, cellulite, and sagging skin on the breast, abdomen, breast, and thigh areas may be an outcome of pregnancy. But these cosmetic concerns are beyond the scope of liposuction.

Liposuction is an effective procedure for body contouring. But it is not meant for cellulite or stretch mark removal, creating an enhanced skin texture, or tightening sagging skin.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides liposuction to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding locations.
