What is the Normal Range of Fat Removed Via Smart Lipo?

I just had smart lipo done and would like to know how much pounds is normal to come off from smart lipo? I am a 25 year old patient about 5'4. I believe I had 5 pounds taken off. Is this reasonable or good?

SmartLipo fat removed

Results of liposuction are not measured based on pounds of fat removed but the number of ccs) cubic centimeters). Fat is low density so the number of pounds lost is less than expected.
