My doc told me that I had 4000 cc's of fat removed (that's fat, not fat plus lidocaine solution). He measured it after it had separated in the container that it was suctioned into. I had my upper and lower abs, public region, and flanks done...so basically my entire mid-section. I'm thinking that sounds like A LOT! It's 4 liters so I'm picturing two of those 2-liter soda bottles. Obviously, I'm pleased with this but I'm wondering if this amount is typical? Also, I know that people don't really associate this with weight loss but I'm down 4-5 lbs depending on time of day I weigh myself, I started at 165 lbs. Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
How much fat (in cc's) removed?
