Liposuction is increasingly popular today for good reasons. It achieves precise results and gives people their desired bodies through minimally invasive methods, promoting a much faster and more comfortable recovery. Thus, it is only natural that people wonder about liposuction and the amount of fat removed.

It is important to remember that liposuction cannot remove all the fat from your body. That is literally impossible – your body needs a healthy amount of fat to function. Liposuction mainly targets stubborn subcutaneous fat, i.e. the top layer of fat under your skin. Most people want to burn this for defined muscles or better contours. Liposuction helps you safely remove it.

Liposuction – Amount of Fat Removed in the Procedure
The amount of fat removed during your surgery depends on your weight. Experts agree that anything more than 10% of fat is too much and make the procedure more traumatic, with more significant risks.

10% means that if you weigh 60kg, your surgeon can safely remove 6 litres of fat in a single sitting. If you want more than that removed, you will have to reschedule a second appointment. You should also note that liposuction is not a solution for obesity or weight loss. Viewing it as such can be very dangerous and give you unrealistic expectations. This is why many people end up regaining all the fat after liposuction.

On the contrary, Liposuction Surgery is about contouring and toning various parts. Whether you want fat removed from your abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, or anywhere else, you cannot substitute a healthy diet and exercise regime with this procedure. In fact, surgeons recommend being within 30% of your ideal body weight before opting for the surgery to get the most out of the procedure.

These are the reasons having an honest consultation with your surgeon before your procedure is essential. You want someone who can keep your expectations realistic by explaining what the surgery can achieve. Additionally, choosing a surgeon with access to minimally invasive equipment like MicroAire and VASER can further reduce downtime while enhancing the results.
