How Many Areas Can Be Treated in a Single Liposuction Session?
Fat rarely accumulates in just one area of your body. Most people may have one or two areas where they would like to have less fat. Fat builds up over time in the abdomen, hips, love handles, back arms, thighs, neck, and other places.
The good news is that liposuction can be the perfect solution for these stubborn fat areas. The result will be a more toned and contoured aesthetic. The question many people ask is, “How many of these areas can be treated in a single liposuction session?” Keep reading to find out!
Typically each area of concern is treated separately in a single session. After the swelling and healing is complete, people are welcome to come back to address another area of their bodies. In some circumstances of extreme fullness, people will need a second session for the same area; however, this is not common.
Large volumes of liposuction can be medically dangerous. If more than five liters of fat are removed in a single session, a patient can be at a higher risk for complications. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons suggests staying within this limit.
Liposuction will be different from person to person, so you will need to consult a surgeon for your specific case to receive an answer; however, it is generally safer to treat only one area at a time.
