How Much Weight Can I Lose With Large Volume Liposuction
Inches, not Pounds: Liposuction will change you in inches more than in pounds. It works best for localized deposits of fat that don’t respond to conventional diet and exercise. The correction from surgery is permanent. But since you asked about weight, the answer depends on how heavy you are to start with. The most I have removed in one surgery is about 22 lbs, or 11 liters of fat. Think of 5 - 2 liter pop bottles.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
