Technically : Technically there is no limit to the number of areas that can undergo liposuction with the body jet. Most surgeons use tumescent anesthesia before the device is used, so the use of enough anesthetic for those areas would be "pushing the limit". Since the thighs are connected to the buttocks, those areas should be done together. On a separate day your surgeon can do your upper and lower abdomen and feather the result into your pubic fat area (if any) and into your flank (waist area). Don't try to do too much at a time. Safelty first.

Safety lipo: The real key to the amount of liposuction that can be done is how much blood loss there is. It is quite possible (and i often do this) to operate on 7-10 areas at one sitting.

Total amount counts: It's not the number of body areas that is counted for safety as the total amount of fat removed is. You will be sore all over but if the total amount is within reasonable range, you're ok. Your board certified plastic surgeon will judge the safe amount for you.
