edit: I do have to mention that after liposuction, relatively less fat accumulates in treated areas compared to untreated areas.
edit2: Not to be all smug about it

Okay, so here it goes. We are born with a certain amount of fat cells and fat cells have the ability to divide. This is part of the survival mechanism you guys are referring to. But once you remove the fat cells your body doesn't have the capability to make new ones. They are gone forever. However it's true that even with lipo it's really difficult if not impossible to remove ALL fat cells. So a small amount remain with all the capacity for division and fat storage. This is why if you gain weight (and it has to be significant weight gain) a small amount of fat will be deposited in the lipo-ed area but it's negligible.
The effect that others are referring to, regarding fat being deposited in other, sometimes unexpected areas, comes from the fact that your body tries to store fat where fat cells should have been (the lipo-ed area) but "can't find them", so it puts it where there are fat cells. It doesn't care where those cells are even if they're in unexpected areas. But this effect only happens if you gain a lot of weight. BTW - If you are overweight you need to start eating better and you need to exercise. Lipo should be the last resort, reserved for people who have stubborn areas that don't want to give up fat even at 8% body fat. And a good, conscientious doctor would tell you that.
And that is what the original post was about. Pubic fat pads are REALLY hard to get rid of, if at all. And doing lipo for that area is perfectly fine as long as you do your due diligence. I don't agree with the idea that the fat should be there 'cause it has a purpose. A small amount of fat might be there for a reason but usually there is more fat there than needs to be. And lipo doesn't have to take it all away, leaving nothing but bone. That's just crazy. Does this make sense?
At any rate, this is my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
