Can I Have Liposuction Performed on More Than One Area at a Time?

Can I Have Liposuction Performed on More Than One Area at a Time?

Liposuction gives you a way to target problem areas of fat, eradicating them. It does come with a recovery period, though. So, if you have more than one stubborn area of fat, you might be wondering if you can knock them all out at once. Can you shrink your downtime by getting liposuction in more than one place during a single procedure? 

The answer is yes. You can absolutely have more than one area treated during a liposuction procedure. There is a limit on how much liposuction you can get, but it caps the total volume of fat that can be removed, not the number of areas you can address. 

To explore what the ideal liposuction procedure could look like for you, schedule a consultation with Linda Swanson, MD, at our office in Torrance or Los Alamitos, California. After you tell Dr. Swanson about your body goals, she tailors a recommendation just for you. 

The liposuction limit

Liposuction comes with a very low complication rate. In studies, fewer than one person per every 1,000 came up against an issue. What’s more, when there were complications, it was usually a seroma, which just means fluid collected at the surgical site. 

Experts recommend that you don’t have more than 5,000 milliliters of fat removed during any single procedure to avoid complications. The more fat you have removed, the more likely you are to have complications after your procedure.

That doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to limit yourself, though. If you strategically spread those milliliters across your problem areas, you can achieve dramatic results. In fact, Dr. Swanson has the expertise to help you identify the best areas to liposuction to achieve your dream shape. 

Combining areas in one procedure

Talk with Dr. Swanson about what you perceive to be your problem areas. She can use liposuction to remove fat from your: 

And as we mentioned before, you don’t have to address those areas individually. Dr. Swanson has successfully performed liposuction on patients’ lower back, hips, thighs, and abdomen in one procedure.

If you want to get an idea of the results, we have not one but two before-and-after galleries you can explore. 

Dr. Swanson has extensive experience helping her patients safely move toward their body goals. Schedule a consultation to share your ideal shape with her so she can tailor a liposuction procedure for you. To get started, call our office nearest you or book your appointment online today.
