How Much Weight Can You Lose Using Liposuction?

Young woman holding scale weight lossMany people struggle with weight loss. Shedding extra pounds — and keeping them off — is a very difficult thing to do. It’s normal to search for a solution that can help achieve your goals. Unfortunately, there are no safe shortcuts when it comes to losing a significant amount of weight.

Liposuction might seem like the answer because it permanently removes stubborn fat cells. However, it’s not a weight-loss procedure. Most patients only lose about two to five pounds.

There are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed safely. Removing too much will increase the risk of complications. Our team always prioritizes patient safety above all else. 

Generally, the best candidates for liposuction are within 30 percent of their ideal healthy weight. And these people struggle with localized excess fat. After all, liposuction is meant to treat stubborn areas such as the tummy, thighs, upper arms, and chin for a better body contour.

If you aren’t sure if liposuction makes sense for your situation, we encourage you to schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can give you personalized recommendations based on your current weight and goals for your figure.

In some cases, we might suggest getting closer to your goal weight before surgery. That way, you can use the procedure to put the finishing touches on your diet and fitness efforts. In other cases, we will determine that you’re already eligible for body contouring using liposuction.

A great thing about liposuction is that it can help renew your motivation to follow a healthy lifestyle. You might feel more encouraged to eat well and exercise after seeing your results.
