Suzanne Trot: Hi, this is Suzanne Trot and I'm here to answer the question of the day ... Is "If I have lipo, is the fat going to come back in other places?" The answer is it can if you gain 20 pounds and don't take care of yourself, but most people who have lipo for body contouring tend to kick it up a notch and just watch what they're eating and exercise, and it shouldn't come back. If it does, it will first try to come back in the places where it was before, and then it will go to other places. So that's the answer.
