Am I Limited in the Number of Body Areas that can be Treated in a Single Liposuction Session?

Liposuction TreatmentMany patients who come to the practice of Dr. Semira Bayati for liposuction would like to address multiple body areas. With the ability to remove excess fat deposits from virtually any region of the body – including the hips, love handles, arms, legs, chin, abdomen, and back – liposuction can often be performed on several areas in a single treatment session, or it can be performed in stages.

The best option for your needs will depend on factors such as:

  • Your individual treatment goals
  • Your medical history and unique physical anatomy
  • The size of the fat deposits being removed and the number of areas being treated
  • The specific liposuction technique that will be utilized
  • The treatment program that offers the safest and most effective procedure possible

In many cases, as many areas as needed can be treated in one liposuction session as long as the volume of extracted fat and fluid is kept under a certain amount at one time – typically, the limit is 5000cc of total aspirate volume. A relatively small person can often have all areas treated in a single procedure, while a larger person may require multiple treatments, depending on the size and number of areas being targeted. Ultimately, liposuction is a very individualized procedure and the number of treatment sessions necessary will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Your safety is our number one consideration. Dr. Bayati will meet with you for an initial consultation to discuss your goals and answer your questions. Once she has evaluated your needs, she will recommend a treatment plan designed to provide you with the safest procedure possible and results that meet your expectations.
