How much fat can liposuction remove, and how does this translate to weight loss?Plastic Surgery
I would like to do liposuction on my tummy area. I want to lose 5 kg of weight, but I'm not sure how many litres this is. How much fat can liposuction safely remove, and how does this translate to weight loss?
I actually advise my patients against liposuction for the purpose of weight loss.
I believe dietary and lifestyle modifications will give you more joy in the long term. Addressing this usually takes up a lot of time in the consultation but I find it worth the while.
Large volumes can be removed safely with the right preparation and medical care during and after the surgery, but as a guide liposuctioning more than 2 litres of supernatant fat requires a stay in hospital.
Hope this is useful.
