Liposuction is one of the most misunderstood plastic surgery procedures. It is not a weight loss surgery. However, it can completely transform the body. One of the questions patients often ask when looking at a procedure like liposuction is, “How much fat can be liposuctioned at once?” or “How much fat can lipo remove?”The answers to these questions will vary based on individual patient health, treatment area, and other procedures they are receiving at the same time. In general, the majority of liposuction procedures will not remove more than ten to fifteen pounds of fat. Most lipo procedures remove much less than that. Often, larger lipo surgeries remove fat from multiple areas of the body versus one treatment area. This accounts for small portions of fat from multiple areas of the body. This is typically the safest way ten pounds of fat is removed with liposuction.It is possible to liposuction more than fifteen pounds, but the surgery becomes higher risk and is not suitable in most cases. Usually, lipo is performed on diet and exercise resistant fat, or to define the body’s features.
