How Many Areas Can You Treat in One Liposuction Session?

Liposuction is a popular procedure for eliminating isolated areas of excess fat in a number of body areas. The solution is ideal for those who have worked hard with diet and exercise routines to achieve their goals but still have a few remaining trouble spots. Although liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be used to treat many areas of the body, there are certain precautions our plastic surgeons take with each treatment plan to provide the safest procedure possible.

Though many patients wonder how many areas of the body can be treated during a single liposuction session, the overall volume of fat removed is typically more important. For an outpatient liposuction procedure, no more than 3-4 liters of fatty tissue is usually removed, due to the increased risk of complications with removing more. In addition, our surgeons typically recommend that patients limit the number of areas treated in a single procedure to around three.

For patients with over three body areas they would like to treat or more than 3-4 liters of excess fat, our surgeons advise that they undergo traditional means of weight loss to reach their ideal weight before choosing liposuction. When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon at the right time and in a safe manner, liposuction can help you achieve your goals with beautiful sculpting results.
