Is there a certain amount they can take out a day on each patient or a certain amount during each procedure per patient?

Max Amount of Fat With Liposuction

Hello. Your body only has a certain amount of fat cells. The surgeon may remove up to 4 liters of fat in general, but the amount that can be taken without causing harm differs for each individual. Once the cells are removed, they will not grow back, so unless you have a very large amount of available fat you will not benefit from multiple liposuction procedures. To reduce your risk of complications or injury, you should have the procedure done by an experienced, board certified surgeon in an accredited surgical facility.

The volume of fat that can be taken depend on the amount of extra fat that you have.

In an oupatient setting one can remove a total of 5000 cc of fat. That is about 7000-8000 cc of total aspirate.
