Maximum Fat Removed Safely Varies

Outpatient Liposuction - No more than 5 liters = guidelines for most states regardless of whether it is laser lipo, ultrasonic lipo or standard liposuction

Liposuction Limits - depends on State, Country and Safety Issues

5000 cc's (5 liters) is the guideline limit for outpatient liposuction for many states including California. For smaller patients  with more areas for liposuction removing less fat may be safer. Make sure you have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon

It's recommended to not go over 4-5 litres in an outpatient facility in Toronto.  Going over that would be unsafe in a single session.

Large volume liposuction

Liposuction, no matter how large or how small causes fluid shifts and blood loss. The larger the volume the greater these shifts/loses are. The amount of liposuction that you can undergo safely also depends upon your age and general health. That having been said, most plastic surgeons will limit outpatient liposuction to around 5 liters. Good luck!
