How much fat removed during liposuction?Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is a body contouring procedure intended to rid your body of small pockets of excess fat that do not respond well to diet and exercise. Patients should be at a stable weight that is near their ideal body weight in order to get the full benefits of body contouring.

In general, we will remove no more than 5 liters, which equates to about 10 pounds of fat during a liposuction procedure. How much we remove will depend on your body type, the area to be treated, and your desired results for body sculpting. During your consultation, we will discuss how much fat will be removed during your specific procedure and set your expectations for exactly how liposuction can subtly transform your figure.

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet and exercise routine, you should be able to enjoy your newly contoured curves for years to come.
