As with most cosmetic procedures, the longevity of your Exilis® results will depend upon your own lifestyle, and how carefully you observe good diet and exercise habits. Patients undergoing any type of body contouring procedure should commit to remaining below their original weight in order to retain their body’s new shape.
Once fat is surgically removed from a specific area of the body, it is not likely to return to that location, although weight can be regained in other areas of the body. Exilis® shrinks fat deposits but does not remove the fat cells. Patients who are using Exilis® as an alternative to liposuction should be able to enjoy their results for several years to come as long as they maintain a healthy lifestyle and do not gain significant weight.
If Exilis® is used for facial rejuvenation, patients should not expect wrinkle reduction to last forever. As your skin ages, new wrinkles can form, and existing wrinkles may become more pronounced. You might need further facial treatments in the future in order to maintain your results to your satisfaction.
