Q: What amount of fat is safe to remove during liposuction done in an office setting?

What our experts say:

It's important to remember that liposuction is a contouring procedure and not a weight-loss procedure. You don’t judge the result by how many pounds you lost, you judge the result by how you look in the mirror. If someone is excessively overweight there is very little that liposuction can do. A liposuction that is more than 5 liters, is considered a large liposuction. The good news it that you don’t need enormous amounts of fat removal in order to improve someone’s contours.
