If you want to get rid of large quantities of fat, then large volume liposuction may be your best option. Many different types liposuction surgeries target specific areas of fat accumulation, like tumescent liposuction.

But, large volume liposuction is exactly that, fat reduction for large portions of the body. The reason someone would opt for large volume liposuction is so they can have a proportionate look to their body since fat is sucked from all portions of there body.

Large volume liposuction is qualified by the American Society of Plastic Surgery as surgery that gets rid of 5 liters of cellulite or close to 6 pounds of fat.

10 pounds of fat that is removed through large volume liposuction can make a huge difference in the outward appearance of an individual. 10 pounds of fat removed by liposuction equates to 30 pounds of fat loss from the average obese individual. An added benefit to large volume liposuction is there is no specialty diet that needs to be followed after surgery has been performed since all the fat that you wanted gone, is now gone for good!

Large volume liposuction is a major surgical procedure so you will have to go under general anesthesia which could be very scary. But when you wake up from your general anesthesia, you will be left with a sleek, slim figure.

Going under general anesthesia is not the only thing you need to think about if you are considering large volume liposuction. There are three other important factors you need to think about, they are:

1) Are you in the right physical shape for this type of procedure? Thoroughly discuss the positive and negative aspects of the surgery with your doctor.

2) Is your doctor board certified to do this type of procedure? He or she may be a great plastic surgeon, but they need to be certified to perform this type of surgery. If they are not, ask them who they would recommend.

3) Who will administer the general anesthesia?

You should do your leg work and make sure that the surgeon who is going to perform the large volume liposuction, as well as the clinic where it is going to take place, is top notch.
