The usual rule is no more than 2 liters of fat, about half a gallon, 4.4 lbs., provided there is not a large amount of blood loss.  Thank you for your questions and good luck.

Most people will limite fat removal with any form of liposuction to about 5 liters.  It doesn't really matter which technique is used.
