What is the Exchange for Ccs to Lbs?

A lot of doctors refer to fat transferred in ccs, but how many pounds is that? 30 ccs to an ounce, 16 ounces to a pound; is that the formula?

Cc's to pounds...

Not exactly. There is no precise formula, since we are not talking about a substance that has a fixed density. For example if it were pure water we were transferring you can make a direct calculation. The fat can be more or less dense depending on the person's makeup. 


My guesstimate is that 300cc = 1.3 lbs.


Wish I could give you a better answer.
