Liposuction is the ultimate in body sculpting procedures, allowing you to reshape your body. It is one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in the world, helping patients remove unwanted fat deposits that are resistant to diet or exercise. Liposuction is recommended for those who are within normal weight ranges, but some people may have more fat to remove than others. In the U.S., the volume of fat removed through liposuction is limited. If you need large volume liposuction, you may need to go outside the U.S. for your procedure.
U.S. Liposuction Regulations
The amount of fat that is allowed to be removed during a liposuction procedure varies from state to state. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends five liters or less of fat removed per procedure, which is what many states, including California, use as their limit. This is about 10 pounds of fat, which may not be sufficient to achieve the desired results for many patients.
