How Much Fat can Liposuction Remove

(310) 276-4494 to learn more. Traditionally, experienced liposuction surgeons like Dr. Andre Berger have adhered to strict guidelines and removed no more than 11 pounds of fat during any single procedure. However, a new study that first appeared in the medical journal Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery before being picked up by many local and national news services has found that the amount of fat safely removed during a single procedure can be higher so long as it is based on a patient’s BMI.
Los Angeles liposuction surgeon Dr. Andre Berger utilizes advanced techniques that can minimize risks, reduce recovery time, and help ensure remarkable results. All of our liposuction procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and none require general anesthesia – both of which factor into a safer and more comfortable liposuction recovery.
It is important to remember that even with these new findings, it is not safe to use liposuction as a method of weight loss. However, even if your BMI is a bit higher, you may be able to achieve pleasing results through one of the advanced liposuction procedures offered at our accredited on-site Beverly Hills cosmetic surgery facility. Dr. Berger can discuss your candidacy for this and other body contouring procedures during your next visit to our office.
