I plan to have smart liposuction to remove 1000 cc’s of fat from each of my thighs? Is this too much fat to remove? How can I speed up recovery? Chicha

Hi Chicha, The maximum amount of fat that can be safely be removed is about 5 litres or 5000 cc – so the amount that you’re contemplating having removed isn’t excessive. As with all surgery, the success of the procedure will depend a great deal on the post-op care given and/or observed by the patient.  By the way, you didn’t say how old you are or the state of your health.  It is worth mentioning that the best liposuction results are expected for patients over the age of 18 years, who have good skin tone and elasticity.  Good candidates for this procedure have good health and are without blood circulation problems.  It is important to consult a board certified plastic surgeon to help you decide on the specific procedure you need to achieve your fat removal goals.
