How Much Fat Can Liposuction Remove? Boston, MA

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity over the past decade. The surgery involves the removal of unwanted fat from specific body regions, such as the thighs, abdomen and hips. It is a minimally invasive procedure that offers fast and long-lasting results.

How Much Fat Can Liposuction Remove?

A common question people ask about liposuction is: exactly how much fat can be removed in one session? However, the amount of fat that can be removed during the procedure varies from person to person. Factors such as age, weight and overall health can all play a role in determining how much fat can be safely removed. Additionally, the amount of fat that can be removed depends on the specific area of the body being targeted.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the maximum quantity of fat that can be safely removed during a single liposuction session is around 5 liters or 11 pounds. However, the amount of fat that can be removed may be lower or higher depending on the individual case.

It should also be noted that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure and should not be viewed as a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. Instead, the primary goal of liposuction is to remove stubborn fat pockets resistant to diet and exercise.
