How come people who get lipo don't get flabby?

Liposuction generally removes 10-ish or less lbs.
Reducing by that small of an amount of "volume,"
doesn't result in excessive skin.

Not true for most of us. After losing massive amounts of weight most of us have excess skin. Getting liposuction without removing the excess skin will give us more excess skin.

Are you sure about that?

My lose skin became more present when I lost my last 20-30 lbs.

Even now, when I lose too much, and get to a low body fat%, my skin looks more wrinkled than when I am a tew pounds heavier.

What do you mean? Your post is not clear.

Do you mean people who get liposuction do not have excess skin? If that is your point, I disagree.

I feel it depends on the person and the elasticity of their skin as well as the area that is receiving the liposuction. You cannot compare yourself to someone who may have better skin quality than you... but on the flip side, if they get lipo in a different area, they may get "flabby" and need an additional procedure down the line. With Lipedema, you can remove the bad fat and nodules, but the skin will still be there, thus, resulting in sagging thighs. A Thigh reduction procedure would then be necessary. but healthy skin tends to bounce back, from what I have read.
