That fat you take out of your ass will end up on your arms, says a new study.
A major side-effect of liposuction is that, in the long run, it doesn’t reduce the total amount of fat in your body — it just sort of rearranges it.
Typically, fat that’s removed from your thighs, abdomen, or ass will end up in your shoulders, upper abdomen, or arms a year later.
The study was contingent on the women not undergoing lifestyle changes (i.e. dieting and exercising) after getting the surgery, so women who do alter they way they eat will see different results.
BUT, this just goes to show that surgery is NOT the way to go about losing weight! Change the way you eat, exercise, and live and you will start to see change!
