How much does it cost to have liposuction, and how much fat can you get out at one time?

Q:

How much does it cost to have liposuction, and how much fat can you get out at one time?

A:

 

Costs for Liposuction vary by region in the USA . This portion of the ASAPS web site may be of assistance:

http://www.surgery.org/consumers/procedures/cosmetic-procedures-snapshot/liposuction

 For safety reasons the volume of fat normally removed as an outpatient is restricted to approximately 5 liters or 5,000cc’s to prevent adverse events, untoward events and unfavorable outcomes in the post operative period. Liposuction volumes over this amount may require an overnight stay or observation by a medical professional. Best,
