Is 1800cc a Good Amount Removed from Flanks and Abdomen Via ProLipo?

Hi, I had 1800cc's removed on my abdomin and flanks which were considerably big with the laser prolipo plus by sciton. Is that a good amount? I know its not 1800cc of pure fat because the solutions were sucked out also. thanks

ProLipo of abdomen

Prolipo for me works best in mild to moderate areas of extra fat. Not having seen you, I can't answer if 1800 cc is a reasonable amount. Usually, I pick patients for this method of body contour enhancement that have 1000cc or less on the abdomen and 800cc or less on the hip/flank region. I tell my patients that the number one risk of having a liposuction type of body contour enhancement is that they will inevidently want more done. Hope that helps.
