Liposuction can be redone in areas if not enough fat was removed, or if there is a significant weight gain and the remaining fat cells have grown significantly.
Liposuction is an excellent treatment method for gynecomastia, a condition where a male’s breasts grows out of proportion to the remainder of the body. Excellent results can be achieved. Ultrasound liposuction is often used because the male breast tissue can be rather fibrous and hard. Using the ultrasound, makes it easier to break up the tissue to remove it.

As long is your diet is maintained, the results will last forever. Obviously, your body will still go through the normal changes with age.
The fat cells that are removed are gone forever and will not be replaced. Areas that are not liposuctioned will have the same number of cells as always. Any remaining fat cells in the body, whether in the areas that where liposuctioned or in other areas, can and will get bigger only if a significant amount of weight is gained. The body does not make new fat cells somewhere else to make up for the ones that were removed.
The most common complications of liposuction include contour deformities from taking out too much or too little fat, asymmetry, rippling of the skin, developing a fluid collection (seroma), and noticeable scars. Liposuction is real surgery and serious complications like fluid overload and even death can result. A risk of ultrasound liposuction is burns on the skin.

This includes some dermatologists, gynecologists, general surgeons, and even internal medicine doctors.

The procedure can be performed either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Which one is used depends on surgeon and patient preference. If a large volume of fat is to be removed, general anesthesia is the safer way to go.
Generally speaking, the actual technique of moving the cannula back and forth is not very different from one doctor to another. What does vary is the judgment and experience of the surgeon, who has to decide how much fat to remove and where to remove it. There are different machines that can be used. Some surgeons use standard liposuction equipment while others use either external or internal ultrasound to help break up the fat before it is suctioned.
